    About Us

    Plough Publishing House, founded in 1920, is an independent publisher of books on faith, society, and the spiritual life. We’re based in Walden, New York with branches in the United Kingdom and Australia.

    We also publish Plough Quarterly, a bold new magazine of stories, ideas, and culture to inspire faith and action. In addition, we serve up fresh views and insights daily online. (Sign up for weekly updates.)


    Quality over Quantity

    Because we believe in quality over quantity, we’re able to lavish attention on every project. We devote rigorous attention to editing and design, and we stand behind each of our titles with strong and innovative promotion. Look for new titles in all these categories (see current catalog):

    • Christian living
    • Social issues
    • Church history
    • Devotional anthologies
    • Spiritual classics
    • Parenting and education
    • Poetry and literary fiction
    • Children’s books

    Who We Are

    Plough has always aspired to be more than just another publisher – our goal is to help build a worldwide network of writers, readers and doers who, while belonging to diverse traditions, share a common conviction: that faith has the power to transform every aspect of life.


    The Bruderhof

    Plough is the publishing house of the Bruderhof, an international movement of Christian communities whose members are called to follow Jesus together in the spirit of the Sermon on the Mount and of the first church in Jerusalem, sharing all our talents, income, and possessions (Acts 2 and 4). Bruderhof communities, which include both families and single people from a wide range of backgrounds, are located in the United States, England, Germany, Australia, and Paraguay. Visitors are welcome. Learn more about the Bruderhof’s faith, history, and daily life, or find a Bruderhof community near you to arrange a visit.
