Anvil is an anglican evangelical journal for theology and mission that seeks to enable the developing and emerging church to engage in and reflect on mission in today's and tomorrow's world.

Within this broad vision it looks to publish articles across the range of theological sub-disciplines. These should be aimed at theologically literate church leaders.

Anvil appears four times a year. One edition (usually issue 3) is edited by the Assistant Editor (Anne Dyer) and two are edited by the Editor (Andrew Goddard). One edition each year (usually issue 2) is edited by a guest editor and all articles are specifically commissioned and sharing a common, specific focus.

Each edition usually contains four articles and a large number of book reviews (arranged by the book review editor, Adrian Chatfield). Advice for new reviewers appears at the end of the style guide.

The overwhelming majority of our readers are Anglicans in authorised ministry, lay and ordained. They have expressed a strong preference for biblical articles engaging with hermeneutics and relevant to parish ministry and preaching.
