Templeton Press publishes nonfiction books by data-driven researchers working on topics that Sir John Templeton considered of ultimate concern to human flourishing. These include the preservation of economic and political freedom, the teaching of virtue and character development, the integration of spirituality and health, and the undying scientific quest to investigate the nature of reality. As a catalyst for broadminded cultural discussion, we seek out multiple perspectives, invite disagreement, and challenge conventional wisdom. And we uphold the model Sir John set for us by maintaining a constant attitude of respect and dignity for people everywhere, firm in our belief that in order to live lives of meaning and purpose, we must have free and fearless dialogue.

The Gifford Lectures website was established in 2003 at the directive of Sir John Templeton to increase the strategic impact of the Gifford Lectureships, established by Adam Lord Gifford (1820–1887). The purpose of Lord Gifford’s bequest to the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, and Aberdeen was to sponsor lectures to “promote and diffuse the study of Natural Theology in the widest sense of the term—in other words, the knowledge of God.” Managed by Templeton Press through May 2021, the website transferred ownership to the Templeton Religion Trust, a global charitable trust chartered by Sir John Templeton in 1984.
