"When an artist's original marks can be seen beneath the layers of work, it's called pentimento. That's what I saw in this extraordinary exploration of The Faith of Queen Elizabeth by Dudley Delffs. Her life reveals the Maker's hand in everyday moments and throughout her six decades of leading a commonwealth—always underpinned by her faith. If you thought you knew all there was to know about one of the most recognizable women in the world, this book will surprise you and leave you in tears of gratitude that such a monarch exists. How I love this book!"

"The Faith of Queen Elizabeth spotlights the extraordinary life of a woman who has consistently lived out her faith in Christ on a world stage. Dudley Delffs weaves history, cultural insight, and personal anecdotes from those who know the Queen to create a fascinating royal tapestry. Some stories surprised me while others helped me better understand the British monarchy, but most of all, I was inspired by the way Queen Elizabeth has lived her life as a follower of Jesus. She has created an enduring spiritual legacy for many generations to come."

"Queen Elizabeth II has fascinated me for most of my longish Anglophile life. Now Dudley Delffs has written an accessible, lively overview of Her Majesty's lifetime achievements and challenges—in her own words, and through the lens of her personal and political context. Excellent research and knowledge of contemporary culture meld with personal anecdotes to reveal the Queen's deepest commitments to her family, nation, and the international community."

"I have admired Dolly Parton for a long time... as an entertainer, a songwriter, a brilliant business woman, a philanthropist, and as a friend. No matter what her trials and triumphs, her faith in God has remained an unchanging constant in her life. As author Dudley Delffs explores the deep roots of Dolly's faith, we come to understand that faith is what motivates her to selflessly give so much back to the community that raised her and to audiences around the world. Join me in accepting the author's challenge to go deeper in our own faith and live a little bit more like Dolly, one of the most beloved Tennesseans of all time."
