Firstly, on this website, where we offer a number of special offers. DLT books are also available from all good Christian bookshops, many General bookshops and from online retailers. If your local bookshop does not have what you want in stock, they should be able to order it for you.
We publish a wide-ranging list of books that include biography, spirituality, theology, wellbeing, contemporary issues, fiction and humour, and we also publish the Jerusalem Bible, and its revised and updated successor, the New Jerusalem Bible – two of the most clear, accurate and distinguished modern English translations of the Bible.
Our books are written by, and for, people of all faiths and none. We believe that spirituality and faith are important to all people, of all backgrounds, and that the wisdom of any one culture or tradition can inform and nourish another. All our books are intended to help people – to better understand themselves, to better understand God, faith and religion, and to better understand our relationships with other people. We aim to be creative, sometimes provocative, so our books are most likely to be appreciated by people who like to engage and be challenged. For more information on DLT, go to the 'About Us' page.
DLT is sometimes thought of as a Catholic publisher because we have, historically, published books by a number of high-profile Catholic writers, as well as the Jerusalem Bible and New Jerusalem Bible which are used widely in the Catholic Church. We have also been known for some very good books from Orthodox, Celtic and ‘emergent’ traditions – a rich mix of these books comprises our backlist.
Today, our books come from many different worldviews and traditions, but they all share a relish for opening up argument and debate, and a desire to reach people and to learn from them, not to exclude them.
The company is owned and run by a team of people from a range of different backgrounds – we are not exclusively ‘Catholic’, ‘Anglican’, ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’. We prefer not to work under any defining label, and that includes ‘religious’. For more information on DLT, go to the 'About Us' page.
No, Darton, Longman and Todd is a common-ownership publishing company and has no direct connection with Longman, which is an imprint of the Pearson group. One of the founders of our company, Michael Longman, was a member of the publishing Longman family. He, Tim Darton, John Todd and Liz Russell founded DLT as a brand new, independent company in 1959. For more information on DLT, go to the 'About Us' page.
We do our best to make sure that information on our books is kept up to date. Therefore, only books that are in print should feature on this website and in our catalogues.
We will be able to add you to our press database so that all advance information on our books is sent directly to you every month.
We receive several manuscripts and proposals for consideration each week and, over the years, a small number of our successful books have been published in response to an unsolicited submission. If you wish to have a proposal or a finished manuscript considered for publication by DLT please read our Submission guidelines.
We will be happy to solve any difficulties you may be experiencing.
