Around The World in 80 Faiths

10 Aug

Anglican vicar Peter Owen-Jones has been given a year’s sabbatical to travel the world with a BBC crew to explore different faiths around the world at the beginning of the 21st century.
Pete Owen Jones presents the definitive guide to faith on earth, with eighty rituals across six continents in the space of a year.
The big six world religions are only part of the story. Faith is belief in the sacred, and it is expressed in a rich diversity of rituals, in denominations, sects, cults, tribal faiths and new religious movements.
Pete’s mission is to witness and take part in rites rarely filmed before, to take the religious pulse of the planet and to understand the depth of humanity’s fascination with the divine.
As an Anglican priest, Pete will be confronting cultures that will challenge his values and prejudices – he will be surprised, even offended, but also enlightened.
