The Latimer Trust aims to encourage biblical thought and action by publications which engage from an evangelical perspective with contemporary issues affecting the church and the world. These publications include:
Latimer Studies - well-researched booklets usually of between 40 and 100 pages
Latimer Briefings - shorter booklets aimed at a wider audience
Latimer Books & Compilations - more substantial books, both new works and compilations of material previously published but not readily available.
Latimer Comments - very brief responses to issues of the moment
Anglican Foundations - a series of booklets which focus on the Formularies of the Church of England and offer practical guidance on how such services may be used in Christian ministry nowadays.
St Antholin's lectures - an annual lecture on Puritan theology (published in collaboration with the St Antholin Trustees

The Centenary of the ‘war to end all wars’ has brought to prominence both the pain and the pride of the armed forces. But it also raises some perennial questions about such forces, the place of Christians within them, and the Christian response to commemorating the events of war. This booklet sets out to outline the place and role of armed forces and the ‘Just War’ theory, to look at some of the pressures under which personnel of the modern Western world’s militaries serve as well as some of the moral issues surrounding the existence and the use of these same forces.
This book is about how God’s Word shapes and rules our devotion to him. What is the best way of talking about this? ‘Spirituality’ is what many people call it, but this is not the ideal word. It can mean a great many things, some of them very far removed from anything the Bible teaches. ‘Piety’ is another possibility, but this is sometimes used in a rather negative way. Preferable is ‘Devotion’. When we speak of a couple being ‘devoted’ to each other, we mean that their relationship is strong, loyal, and loving – which is how we should relate to God.
“There have been other discussions of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s theology, but this is the first serious attempt to link it with his ecclesiastical policy. The parallel seems to be drawn very tellingly.” - The Revd Dr Roger Beckwith, formerly warden of Latimer House, Oxford.
"Whilst the Calvinistic doctrines were the language of our pulpits as well as of our Articles, the Reformation made a swift and extensive progress. But ever since our Articles and our pulpits have been at variance, the Reformation has been at a stand.” Augustus Montague Toplady
A lecture hosted by the Peterborough Diocesan Evangelical Fellowship in partnership with the Latimer Trust on 2nd April 2007 at Christ the King, Kettering.
What is the basis for fellowship and unity in the Anglican Communion? Surely we have to turn to the Apostolic testimony as found in the Bible. But how are we to understand this within our own culture and context? In this timely lecture, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali reflects on the characteristics of Anglicanism, and its strengths and weaknesses.

Puritan ministers saw themselves as ambassadors for God, called to proclaim his word and shepherd his people. They sought to pastor and lead people through the word clearly preached and the sacraments rightly administered, and by means of a godly church discipline. In this second compilation of recent St. Antholin lectures, we see and hear the Puritans in action, and are encouraged to apply their godly wisdom in our own day.
