Coles to Jerusalem: a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with the Reverend Richard Coles
In Easter, 2015, Britain's best-loved vicar, the Rev. Richard Coles, led a pilgrimage to all the major historic sites of the Holy Land: from Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee in the North, via Jericho and the Jordan River, to Bethlehem and, finally, Jerusalem. This book describes the pilgrimage.

All the pilgrims in Richardd Coles's care were practising Christians, except the writer Kevin Jackson, a diffident and sympathetic atheist intrigued by the chance to join this modern-day version of an ancient act of piety, and to learn more about his old friend, the media clergyman. The book is Kevin Jackson's light-hearted diary of that pilgrimage, and a close-up portrait of Richard Coles both as priest and as man. As the journey proceeds, Coles reminisces at length about his past life as a rock star and radical gay agitator, his new life as a spiritual leader and a popular broadcaster on BBC radio and television, and the strange, unpredictable path that led him from self-destructive debauchery to faith and vocation. With a lively supporting cast of fellow pilgrims, the book ranges among the magnificence of ancient monuments and the banalities of the guided tour, the grim political background of contemporary Israel and the comedy of a group of idiosyncratic English folk abroad.
