Peter uses two chapters, Luke 24 and Acts 2, to spell out the priorities of the Risen Jesus and how the apostles responded. From Luke he draws the following themes: Enjoy Jesus' Resurrection; Receive His Forgiveness; Welcome His Spirit; Feed on his Scriptures; Receive his Sacrament; Tell others his Good News. The parallel themes from Acts: Share with Jesus' People; Worship him always; Follow his teaching; Live his life; Resist his enemies; Trust Jesus for the future. The originality of this idea lies partly in its neat focus on two representative chapters, and partly in the intended presentation which will follow the same successful pattern of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Bible, with wide margins, pull out boxes etc.

Dr Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at post-doctoral level on attitudes to Jerusalem in the time of both the Bible and the Early Church. For many years he taught New Testament Studies at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford and was for five years Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry, near Pittsburgh in the United States. He has authored a dozen books and written numerous articles on Jesus, the New Testament and the Holy Land today, as well as on issues in the Anglican Communion. Peter is an ordained clergyman in the Church of England and has led guided tours to the lands of the Bible for over 30 years. He and his wife, Georgie, now live back in the UK and have two married children.
