Welcome to Plough

We’re here for people who want to put their faith into action. Our Christian ebooks, readings, daily prayers and inspiration aim to encourage, provoke, and transform. For those who love physical books, we offer classics and new titles on Christian living, forgiveness, family and children, the Bible, church community, and social justice, as well as short stories, poems, and devotions.

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.
