Synopsis:
Forthcoming due April 2009. Sussex Christian Vicar and TV star of previous BBC films the Lost Gospels, and Extreme Pilgrim, sets himself a new challenge: to travel the globe and take part in the most important rituals of 80 of the world's religions, a journey covering our most beautiful and holy places, people and events. Throughout his tour he meets the practitioners of the faiths, attempts to understand their beliefs and immerses himself in astonishing religious ceremonies.

Jones's epic quest covers six continents, taking in the Far East, where the world's most ancient religions are still practiced, Europe, Africa, Australasia, North and South America, and the Middle East, the epicentre of religious turmoil today. Amid often baffling and intense events, Peter finds moments of serenity and also terror: from the remote beauty of the Mongolian mountain shrines to the synagogues of Lithuania left empty in the wake of the Holocaust.

Written with Jones's characteristic insight and wit, and complete with full-colour photographs from his extraordinary travels, Around the World in 80 Faiths is both a unique travel book and a comprehensive picture of religios expression.
