— Queen Elizabeth’s new book out in April
— Copies of book to be given for free in several Churches
— Queen touches on Mass Killing of Christians in Middle East
As Britain’s Queen Elizabeth approaches her 90th birthday this April, she reflects on the role Jesus Christ as played in her life in a new book to be released in April as well.
The Queen calls Jesus Christ “the King she serves” in the title of the book.
The book which is being published by HOPE, Bible Society and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity will be giving out for free in a number of churches, according to the Church of England.
“As I’ve been writing this book and talking about it to friends, to family who don’t know Jesus, to my Jewish barber, I’ve been struck how very interested they are to discover more about the Queen’s faith,” said Mark Greene, executive director of LICC, who is the co-author of the book.
“The Queen has served us all her adult life, with amazing consistency of character, concern for others and a clear dependence on Christ. The more I’ve read what she’s written and talked to people who know her, the clearer that is,” he added.
Aside her faith, Queen Elizabeth also talked about the mass persecution of Christian going on in the middle East, an issue she has spoken about in time past.
