Anglican vicar Peter Owen-Jones has taken a sabbatical to travel the world with a BBC team to explore different religions around the world in the early 21.

Pete Owen Jones presents the definitive guide for faith in the land, with eighty rituals through six continents in the space of a year.

The six major world religions are just a part of history. Faith is belief in the sacred, and is expressed in a variety of rituals, denominations, sects, cults, tribal religions and new religious movements.

Pete mission is to witness and participate in rituals rarely filmed before taking the religious pulse of the planet and to understand the depth of the fascination of humanity with divinity.

As an Anglican priest, Pete faced by cultures that will test their values and prejudices – you will be surprised, even offended, but also enlightened.
