Arthur Peters was born and raised in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, attended University of King's College in Halifax and ministered six parishes before being elected Bishop of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and then Archbishop and Metropolitan. He retired in 2002, after 40 years in the clergy, 20 years as bishop and archbishop.

A Deeper Imprint recounts Peters' life from his humble beginnings through the experiences of parish life in Nova Scotia, of raising a family on the move and of Peters' acumen dealing with diocesan matters during exciting, sometimes controversial, times for the Anglican Church: ordination of women, accusations of abuse, Residential Schools.

Growing up in a humble and hardworking environment in wartime Cape Breton left an undoubtedly deep imprint on Peters, who, in turn, left his own imprint in numerous parishes, the diocese and the Anglican communion as a whole.
