Readers new to Elvis' story will find this book to be the ideal introduction. Those who are more familiar with his life will enjoy the added dimension of new revelations about his spiritual and philosophical beliefs.
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.
He doesn't disappoint with this work on Elvis. Of course, not much new ground is broken with this book, it still shows a complicated and curious Elvis searching for meaning. It seems only natural that someone like Elvis, raised in a spiritual home, who remained levelheaded even after reaching the pinnacles of fame, would ask why he was the one to receive such acclaim and rewards.
My only complaint is that, unlike his book on Harrison, Tillery spends too much time dealing with the parts of Elvis's biography that we already know. I was hoping for a much more in-depth look at Elvis's reading and investigations into different philosophies and religions, which Tillery seems to not mention in passing. Despite that, this is still a terrific book and one that will intrigue Elvis fans and biography readers.
