"Elvis Presley was an icon of sex, stardom, and rock and roll, but beneath the glitz and Las Vegas glamour brooded a sensitive soul, deeply troubled by life's mysteries. Gary Tillery's highly readable biography shows us another side of the King, as a seeker eager to grasp life's secret meanings, and to explore a whole range of spiritual paths. Elvis may have left the building, but as this book shows, his spirit carries on."
--Gary Lachman, former Blondie bassist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and popular religion writer, Reviews
"As a big Elvis fan, I thought I had read everything there was to read about him. But this book explores new areas and goes further into old ones. It's a must for Elvis fans and is now definitely a new addition to my library."
--Fred Willard, actor, Reviews
"This is one fantastic book. The spiritual search that Elvis took to the very
moment of his death is eye opening. His goodness is everywhere. He was generous
and kind to those he loved and those he didn't. He was sure in his love of God
and wanted to be closer to him. A wonderful and spiritual book for every fan and
--Mary Willard, playwright, "Elvis and Juliet", Reviews

He read his Bible every day and seemed to put God first, which is what people are supposed to do instead of living selfishly. He was generous
and always tried to help others. No wonder he was loved by so many. I learned some new things about Elvis from this book.
But to summarize, Elvis would have loved reading Watchman Nee's "The Spiritual Man" series and thankfully he realized just before his death that Jesus is what he was seeking for and because this world tries to mold us into it's image, we who believe do not fit into it's mold for we are formed into the likeness of God..through Jesus. Rest in peace E and we'll have a long time in heaven to talk about everything our kindred spirits were seeking but have now found.
