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.

For the full review, read on.
For the Archbishop of Canterbury reconciliation is at the heart of the Gospel and he therefore hopes that it will become the hallmark of the Anglican Communion.
In this review of the book by Phil Groves and Angharad Parry Jones, Living Reconciliation, Martin Davie says that the existence of helpful aspects of the book need to be acknowledged. However, the book as a whole is deeply problematic. For the full review, read on.
British Values and the National Church: Essays on Church and State from 1964-2014 edited by David Holloway
'The religious traditions of Great Britain are in the main Christian'. So says the law of the land, but recent crises are exposing the vulnerability of those traditions to the manipulation of those with other agendas.
Canon Max Warren’s three lectures on ‘The Functions of a National Church’ were delivered in 1963. At the time, he was ahead of many of his colleagues in his thinking about the role of the Church of England. Warren’s insightful lectures offer much material for discussion. In the first edition of this study (The Functions of a National Church by Max Warren and Raymond Johnston) the three lectures were accompanied by an introduction by Raymond Johnston regarding the theological basis for a National Church; in this second edition, David Holloway follows the trajectory up to the present day with a discussion of 'British Values'.
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.
