Conduct of Public Worship

John A. Broadus

Originally published as part of his Treatise on the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons, this short discourse by Baptist leader John A. Broadus provides helpful exploration of issues related to thoughtful, deliberate, and biblical public worship. Topics surveyed include Reading of Scripture, Hymns, Public Prayer, Length of Services, and Pulpit Decorum.

John Albert Broadus (1827–1895) was an American Baptist pastor and professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, one of the most famous preachers of his day. Charles Spurgeon deemed Broadus the “greatest of living preachers.” Church historian Albert Henry Newman later said “perhaps the greatest man the Baptists have produced.”
