Never miss a new book by signing up for the Plough Weekly newsletter. Or get our Daily Digs, a dose of “caffeine for the conscience” from writers such as C.S. Lewis, Henri Nouwen, Dostoyevsky, Johann Christoph Arnold, Mother Teresa, Tolstoy, Jane Tyson Clement, Meister Eckhart, Sadhu Sundar Singh, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
