MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Kent Sanders and his coauthor Billy Stanley…

Billy Stanley is a New York Times bestselling author and the stepbrother of Elvis Presley. As one of the singer’s trusted confidants, Stanley witnessed Elvis’s faith in action firsthand. A successful salesman and former airplane mechanic, Stanley and his wife, Liz, live in Memphis, Tennessee, just a few miles from Graceland.

Kent Sanders is the founder of Inkwell Ghostwriting, which helps leaders grow their business through books and other content. He is also the author and co-author of numerous books, including 18 Words to Live By: A Father’s Wisdom on What Matters Most and co-author of The Faith of Elvis: A Story Only a Brother Can Tell with Billy Stanley, Elvis Presley’s stepbrother.

In addition to writing books for himself and his clients, Kent loves to help other writers. He is the host of the Daily Writer podcast, which helps writers cultivate the habits for creative success, and the founder of the Daily Writer membership community. He lives just outside of St. Louis and enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and teenage son.

The Faith of Elvis was written by Billy Stanley with Kent Sanders, which is today’s featured book.


Behind the glamour and the crowds. Beyond the movies and the records.

Apart from all who knew him, wanted to know him, or just wanted to be near him.

Billy Stanley knew Elvis Presley as a brother—and as a man of deep faith.

From the day Billy Stanley arrived at Graceland and received a bear hug from the King of Rock and Roll to the last conversation they ever had, one thing stayed the same: Elvis’s passion for sharing God’s love with as many people he could.

In The Faith of Elvis,Billy illuminates Elvis’s Christian journey—from the notes Elvis made in his beloved Bible to his struggles with sin as his fame increased to his remarkable generosity toward fans and movie stars alike.

Through this first-hand account, you will find

  • touching family stories of the Elvis that pop culture doesn’t know;
  • a keen look into how Elvis intricately wove his faith into every part of his life;
  • insights into the ups-and-downs the four brothers experienced while at home and on the road together; and
  • examples of Elvis’s profound influence on others—from those closest to him to his cherished fans and, ultimately, the world at large.

Here you will find your own faith strengthened and your heart turned more toward heaven—or as Elvis would say, toward the only true King.
