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.
Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at a post-doctoral level on Christian attitudes to Jerusalem. Peter is now Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry (near Pittsburgh, USA), having previously taught at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford. He has led many study tours to the Holy Land. His books include: In the Steps of Jesus, In the Steps of Saint Paul, The Lion Guide to the Bible, and The Story of the Holy Land.
