The goals of the Prize are to:
- Encourage the writing and reading of theology to help the Church in thinking more deeply, acting more wisely, and witnessing more effectively.
- Promote engagement with theology by generating publicity, providing a forum for discussion, and contributing to the popularity of theological literature.
- Provide a vehicle by which the Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury can encourage and challenge Christians to love God with all their heart and soul and mind and strength.
- Recognise and contribute to the success of published resources that will encourage all Christians to play a more active role in a worldwide praying, witnessing, and reconciling church.
The Michael Ramsey Prize is administered by SPCK and is sponsored by the Lambeth Trust.
