Whenever the Word of God is faithfully expounded and applied, congregations grow in both size and depth. So if the great need is a rise in the standards of biblical preaching, how can we help to ensure a steady supply of better preachers? John Stott believed that to preach and teach effectively, pastors need books. In 1974 he started to set aside his own money to help pastors in the Majority World buy good books. Soon books were shipping to colleges and pastors in many countries throughout Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Over thirty years on, this effort continues to grow and to help meet literature needs for thousands of pastors and bible students around the world.
Langham Literature offers several different distribution and creative programs that faithfully serve Majority World seminary students and pastors with the books they need to preach and teach effectively. More information about this can be found in the About Us page. Please consider giving to support these programmes, here are some of the ways you can give:
Fulfill a College Wishlist
Even though we give colleges an annual grant to buy books their literatures need are still great. Help a college library by donating either partially of fully to a book wishlist that they have created. To view wishlists by country please visit our Wishlist page.
Book +1 Initiative
Buy a book for yourself and automatically provide a Majority World College Library or Pastor with a copy of their own at no extra cost. For more information and eligible books please see our Book +1 page.
