‘Good preaching is impossible without study, and study is impossible without books’

John Stott (Langham’s founder)

Langham Partnership believes that every church in every nation deserves a biblically well-trained leader…but not all Bible colleges have access to enough books!

The Problem

  • The majority of Bible colleges Langham works with lack funding to acquire books
  • The majority of the books are written by Western authors for a Western audience
  • Langham is one of a few ministries addressing the problem
  • Langham is the only ministry allowing colleges to choose the books they need for their library

The Solution

  • Supplying a catalogue of over 7,000 titles that colleges can choose from
  • Giving over 700 bible colleges a grant to choose books they need from the catalogue
  • Supporting local authors and publishers to write and address local issues
  • Filling libraries with contextually relevant, Christ-centred, biblically informed evangelical literature

How You Can Help

  • Pray for our fellow brothers and sisters around the globe who crave what we take for granted – books
  • £22 a month, plus Gift Aid (£330) would give a bible college a grant to choose the books they need
  • Your support would make sure the books and the cost of shipping them are getting to people desperate to study so their preaching is biblical and Christ-centred
