The Latimer Trust
Biblical Truth for Today's Church
The Latimer Trust is an evangelical think-tank dedicated to providing biblical input and a considered response to significant issues within the Christian community and elsewhere. The Trust is continuing and developing the work of Latimer House which was founded in Oxford, England, during the 1960s. Our books, studies, briefings and publications are available on this site and via other outlets worldwide.
Ecclesiastes 12:12 tells us that ‘of the making of many books there is no end.’ This continues to be the case and it can be difficult for busy Christians with limited book budgets to keep track of what is being published and what it might be worth their while to read or buy. In order to help with this Martin Davie will offer every month a new list of ten books which have been recently published and which he thinks will be helpful in resourcing LT supporters in their thinking and their ministry. The list contains details of the books, a brief overview of their content, why Martin thinks they are worth reading and commendations by other scholars.
In place of July's download, Martin has produced two substantial book reviews: Journeys into Darkness: A review of Journeys in Grace and Truth and On not paying sufficient attention to reality: A review of Amazing Love.

The relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity has been hotly debated since the earliest centuries of the church. The Church Fathers like Tertullian, Athanasius and Hilary of Poiters wrestled with it; church councils at Nicaea, Syrmium and Chalcedon legislated about it in attempts to define orthodoxy and heresy. What did they and the Bible say, and why does it matter today?
The Latimer Office team hope that you will have some time to enjoy reading this summer. But as it is (in the UK!) a holiday period, we regret that our response to your purchases or enquiries may not be as rapid as we would otherwise intend - so please bear with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. There will be no one in the office from 22-26 August, and we may be a bit slow to respond beyond that during August.
Thank you for your understanding!
St Antholin lecture 2016
This study offers a sketch of John Owen’s prophetic preaching in which his dogmatic providentialism and the fiery apocalypticism almost threaten to destroy his image as a Reformed Orthodox theologian and man of the Renaissance. With an initial glance, one might think that there is little practical to be learned from such a vignette. However, upon closer inspection three striking applications, or, in the language of early-modern homiletics, ‘uses’, emerge that are directly relevant for much contemporary preaching.
