HASH(0x8bcc6f60) out of 5 stars interesting 26 Sept. 2013
By Sandra Dunn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read most of what has been written about Elvis...I have especially enjoyed the past few books written by those who knew Elvis.This book does a great job retelling Elvis' life focusing on his deep spirituality which any fan knows was the core of Elvis. Fast easy the song and literature references.

HASH(0x8bcd1060) out of 5 stars A must-read for both the casual and avid Elvis fan 20 Oct. 2013
By David Ives - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this to be a highly engaging and readable bio of The King. This is the first book I've read about Elvis and it provided an excellent look at his life overall, with a special focus on his spiritual interests and beliefs. It does a great job of chronicling his early life, rise to fame, relationships with family, friends and Colonel Parker, and his gradual decline. I found the chapters about Sun and his early career particularly fascinating. I was also surprised at the variety and range of his religious interests.

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.

HASH(0x900506f0) out of 5 stars A fascinating insight into the King and his beliefs 1 April 2015
By Eleanor - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was bought for me for my birthday, and I am a relatively new Elvis fan - though I've always liked his music I've not really been a hardcore fan until earlier this year. I'm very interested in spirituality, what lies beyond for us and how we can live a happy life whilst we are here. It was so interesting to read that Elvis was so passionate about these same things, what drove him - Gary lays it out very well chapter by chapter and it's very easy to digest - I almost wish it had been longer! Saddened to read how Elvis's beliefs were ridiculed by those close to him, mainly his wife and the Memphis Mafia - I think he truly had more going on upstairs than them, and they couldn't/didn't want to understand, so ridicule was the action they chose. I read once he felt he was a "freak of nature" - I just believe he was TOO GOOD for this world. The stories of incidents happening around the world to fans after he passed gave me butterflies! This is a terrific, fascinating read, showing that Elvis was NOT a dumb boy from the South who struck it lucky. He was thoughtful, intelligent, a thinker.

HASH(0x8bbdad80) out of 5 stars Kindred spirits 16 May 2014
By Dennis Huskins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I always felt a kindred spirit with Elvis (not the idol worshipping kind most fans feel) and as a deep seeker of truth and all things spiritual I thought this book would be revealing about that strong connection we have. Well it highlights some of his spiritual quests mostly as seen through the eyes of Larry Geller (from his book If I Can Dream) and much of this book is re-telling stories taken from other books already out about Elvis. In fact 75pct of this book is like gossiping based on what other books have written already (some parts inaccurately). The best way to judge this one is by overview since there's nothing new or revelational about it, it does give you an over-the-years-look perspective at how Elvis slowly evolved from trying to fill that void that we all have inside us with more of God while actually seeking in false God areas such as Hindu, Numerology, Meditation, and some that borderline on witchcraft. But eventually he discovers all roads lead him back to where he had left God to go seeking for what was already inside him. It is very hard to believe that trusting God is that simple and we complicate him by our human endeavors even though our intentions are well meaning, we must each go on a personal journey to realize God is all we need. I think Elvis' hunger for more spirituality while living on earth carnally was passed on to Lisa her serach she got messed up in Scientology for a while but now is set free from that bondage as she will now tell you how "idiot" that cult is.
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.

HASH(0x8bb019cc) out of 5 stars Another Great Book from Gary Tillery 14 Jan. 2015
By Andrew Jordan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Gary Tillery's book about George Harrison a few months ago and was thought it was well written and showed a side of Harrison that, while the public knew about it somewhat, was largely undocumented. Tillery's spiritual biographies of musicians is, I think, an intriguing way of discussing their private and internal lives.

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.
