The author of this highly readable and beautifully illustrated book was the pioneer in translating the New Testament into vividly modern English, and he bases what he has to say on his own translation in its latest version. But his book is also made exciting by his conviction that the Gospel of Mark is nothing less than the writing down of Peter's own memoirs of his Master - and that the First Letter of Peter is authentic (although the Second Letter, also included in the New Testament, is not). So he supplies a commentary on Peter's gospel and on Peter's pastoral letter from Rome. Through the eyes of the Prince of the Apostles we see Jesus as he really was, in Palestine and in his trans- forming impact on Christians around the first-century Mediterranean. Such a Lord, making such an impact, matters supremely today.
