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 celebration of the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has helped to stimulate a renewed interest in its teaching and fundamental contribution to Anglican identity. Archbishop Cranmer and others involved in the English Reformation knew well that the content and shape of the services and doctrine set out in the Prayer Book were vital ways of teaching congregations biblical truth and the principles of the Christian gospel.
Examining how a society views its dead is an important way of viewing how that society negotiates social and religious change and development. This work examines the impact of the Reformation on traditional medieval views of the dead and how the Book of Common Prayer encapsulates these developments, offering the Anglican Evangelical minster today a robustly biblical and Protestant platform for pastoral care and teaching.
Simeon’s magnum opus, his Horae Homileticae, famously contains the three questions by which Simeon hoped all his preaching would be judged: ‘Does it uniformly tend to humble the sinner? To exalt the Saviour? To promote holiness?’
The copy in Oxford’s Bodleian library also contains this inscription:
The essays contained in this volume originated as lectures delivered in August 2014 during ‘The Whitefield Symposium’ held at George Whitefield College, Cape Town, in partnership with Jonathan Edwards Centre Africa, to commemorate the 300th Anniversary of Whitefield’s birth.
‘Whitefield was a born actor, a born-again orator, and a tireless evangelistic preacher with a huge, heart-warming voice, a huge intensity as a communicator, and a grand strategy for making Christ known on both sides of the Atlantic.
"You are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" (which means "God with us").
The essays collected here originated as papers given at the Annual Moore College School of Theology for 2014.
Like Matthew’s Gospel itself, they show a concern to place the good news about Jesus Christ in the context of God’s unfolding plan of salvation throughout the centuries. The history of Israel contains both promise and pattern that point ahead to the coming of Jesus Christ as the Messiah who will ‘save his people from their sins’.
Cultures, for as long as we have had history, have had some sense of magic. This book contends that some of it, at least, is real; it describes what that is, and why the Bible is so negative about it.
However, to say ‘magic is real’ in our contemporary culture could be very misleading. In fact, wrong. For what our culture thinks of as ‘magic’ – as vague and diffuse as that is – is likely to be very different from what was practised in the Ancient Near East (the things that modern English translations of the Old Testament call, for instance, sorcery or witchcraft) or in the Greco-Roman world (what the New Testament calls magic). It also may be very different from what is called ‘magic’ or ‘witchcraft’ in animistic or ancestor-worshipping cultures today.
Christians today are faced with pressure to change and accommodate, both from outside and from within the church community. Nowhere does this seem to be more true than on the issue of human sexuality.
This volume discusses the issue with particular interest in the impact of recent events and publications on the Church of England.
