Pieter Kwant

Real name: 
Pieter Kwant is the director of Langham Literature and a literary agent, The Piquant Agency. He has over 40 years’ experience in the Christian book trade covering distribution, international sales and publishing. Since 2000 he has worked with Langham Partnership as their Literature Programme Director. As he met with Majority World scholars and pastors he was challenged by the failures of the ‘from the west to the rest’ model of book origination and distribution. Since then he has overseen and managed six major regional one-volume Bible commentaries written by theologians from each region in the world. He started imprints including HippoBooks (Africa), the Langham Global Library, Langham Preaching Resources and Langham Monographs to give voice to writers from the Majority World.
