Overview

The Plowboy: Words of Faith and Encouragement

Do you seek to gain wisdom? Do you strive for a personal philosophy of life? Do you aspire to achieve greatness? If so, then you are not alone. Many people seek for wisdom as well as knowledge. Many people strive for a philosophy of life in order to better understand their existence. Many people aspire to greatness and to leave a lasting legacy.

"Stay away from a wisdom that will not let you laugh, a philosophy that will not let you cry, and a greatness that will not let you bow before little children." These life-altering words from Patrick Martin Williams, Jr. (1898-1988) are engraved on his headstone in Kentucky.

Do you want to have life and to have it more abundantly? In William's enlightening book, The Plowboy: Words of Faith and Encouragement, the author explores the Holy Bible and God's plan for mankind. Williams expounds Jesus' life, sacrifice, and offer of salvation.

The Great Goal: Supremacy of the Bible and a Christ-centered program.
The Great Theme: With Jesus we will live, but without him we will die.
The Great Slogan: The pure in heart that pray together, around the world, shall stay together forever in that world without end.

Throughout the book, Williams' themes reinforce the ideal of peace and safety for all mankind. He develops his compelling guide for a better life by blending scriptures, anecdotes from childhood, his original poetry, and country humor.

Patrick Martin Williams, Jr. was a thinker. His studies included theology, philosophy, history, and business. However, he was also a doer. Williams graduated high school, completed business school, retiredfrom L & N Railroad Company, and participated in the Masonic Lodge. He also labored fervently to help save the lost and strengthen the saved.

    Well written and excellent reading

    The Plowboy by Patrick Martin Williams, Jr. is well written and filled with spiritual wisdom and wit. The readings make the reader laugh a little, and cry a little, but they also give strength through their spiritual references and lessons on daily living. The book leaves the reader realizing the lessons that can be learned from children, and the wisdom that develops in life. The book is well worth reading and is good for promoting emotional strength.
