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
We also stock a few Other resources produced by or in association with other organisations.

The most recent publication of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) examined the question of authority in the church. But Anglican responses to it were very sharply divided. Could Anglicans ever imagine accepting some form of Papal Primacy in a future church?

In 1977 about 130 evangelical members of the Anglican church wrote an Open Letter expressing their concern about the growing contact and unity of the Anglican church and the Roman Catholic church. This study was written in 1979 discussing some of those issues.

“National awareness has been extravagantly praise and (more frequently today) equally emphatically condemned…It might as first seem that even the Christian can only be torn in both directions. Happily this is not the case. We have a vantage point. Some sort of objectivity is possible to the evangelical Christian…”
