About

The name Tyndale’s Ploughboy is taken from the reply that William Tyndale, while at Little Sodbury Manor, stated to a fellow priest that he would make a boy who driveth the plough know more of Scripture than the priest himself.

In some senses, we all can be called Tyndale’s Ploughboys because the Word of God in English came from his work of translation. The rationale for this site is the need to know the Word of God. We need to know it doctrinally, experientially, and practically in our lives. The knowledge of Scripture includes not only the cardinal doctrines such as the doctrine of God, of man, of Christ and His work – but also a clear understanding of the doctrine of the Word itself.
