A photo from Kevin Jackson’s Coles to Jerusalem: A pilgrimage to the Holy Land with the Reverend Richard Coles, showing a pilgrim group led by the Vicar of Finedon, in Nort­hamp­ton­shire: the former keyboard-player with the Communards, and a well-known broadcaster. All the group were practising Christians except the author, a “sympathetic atheist”, who records the pilgrim­age here in diary form with humour and evocative photos. In a foreword, Fr Coles reminds us that at the centre of the exercise was the person of Jesus (Pallas Athene, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-84368-143-4)
