The Jesus Way
Learning to Live the Christian Life
This book teaches the basics of the Christian faith, looking first at what Jesus himself taught, and then at what his apostles had to say. It is for anyone who wants to follow Jesus, but is not sure or would like to be reminded of the way.
In short clear steps, Dr Peter Walker takes us through the basics of enjoying Jesus’ forgiveness, welcoming his Spirit and feeding on his scriptures; then explores the principles of worshipping with his people, following his teaching and trusting him with our future.
This classic of the field has been revised and is accompanied by access to an online PDF workbook and video content.

What a great way to teach the basics of our faith and life! What an inspiration for individuals and groups as they set out on a journey with Jesus! I commend it wholeheartedly to disciples old and young. Use it and share it!"

What the church today needs most are resources for Christian discipleship. In my work I see many people come to faith in Christ but struggle to find materials that will help jump-start them in their journey - to my dismay these are few and far between. Peter's book is easy to understand, well presented, and thorough - without being overwhelming. It is truly an ideal handbook for those starting out on the Jesus way.
This is also a superb book to take on international mission. Many people in the "two-thirds world" do not have Bibles but, when guided through The Jesus Way, they can access the teaching of the New Testament in just twelve easy steps.
Peter Walker provides a clear and thoughtful model for following Jesus. He has done this with the insight of a biblical scholar and the enthusiasm of a passionate believer. He shows how following Jesus is a life filled with joy, triumph in trials, peace, love, and above all, hope. The Jesus Way provides us with a roadmap that leads to a deeper relationship with Jesus and an experience of his abundant life."
