" Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor. Lilibet. Princess. Her Royal Highness. Queen Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, the Queen of Great Britain and Head of the Commonwealth, Her Other Realms, and Territories. Defender of the Faith. Her Majesty. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. No matter her title or role, Queen Elizabeth II reflects a public integrity born of personal faith. Bridging the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, modernity and post-modernity, Her Majesty credits her personal faith in God and belief in Christ as her anchor amid the many storms, both public and private, she has endured. With humility, dignity, and a keen sense of her own humanity, Queen Elizabeth models a blend of historical tradition and entrepreneurial initiative, public service and private devotion. As a result, she has become an icon of stability, longevity, and integrity. Now at the height of her popularity, the longest reigning British monarch continues to touch countless lives. In addition to her public appearances, speeches, and annual Christmas broadcasts, her life has inspired Academy Award-winning films such as The Queen (2006) as well as the wildly popular Netflix original series The Crown, currently filming its third season for anticipated release in 2019 The program, like the very public life of the world's most famous woman, makes it clear that the Queen's life is more challenging than we might expect. While we might be tempted to assume a life of wealth and luxury ensures happiness, freedom, and fulfillment, this is not necessarily the case. For a reigning monarch bound by duty, framed by history, and compelled by God to serve, the role requires tremendous sacrifice. Particularly in the technical evolution of a postmodern world, the British monarchy could easily have become as defunct as a horse-drawn carriage or the red telephone box. Instead, Queen Elizabeth has cultivated a consistency of character dependent on a deep personal Christian faith that fuels her wise servant leadership. Balancing grit and grace with down-to-earth dignity, Her Majesty often returns to themes of forgiveness and compassion directly based on the example of Jesus. In 1985 she said, ""The story of the Good Samaritan reminds us of our duty to our neighbor. We should try to follow Christ's clear instruction at the end of that story 'Go and do thou likewise.'"" Now serving for more than six decades, the Queen has endured wars and battles both public and personal, political and private. Through economic upheavals, national tragedies and international crises, over a dozen Prime Ministers, and the tabloid travails of her children and grandchildren, Queen Elizabeth has remained the calm, steady hand at the wheel. And through all her travails and triumphs, this notoriously private woman and dignified monarch has always credited God and her faith in Him as the source of her strength. Each of the ten chapters will focus on an encouraign faith lesson from Queen Elizabeth's life and include a testimonly from an historic figure (such as Winston Churchill, Billy Graham, Mother Teresa, Margaret Thatcher, etc.), a key Bible verse, a key take away for readers, a personal example from the Queen's life shoig the faith lesson, as well as a quotation from the Queen herself. ""I know just how much I rely on my faith to guide me through the good times and the bad. Each day is a new beginning. I know that the only way to live my life is to try to do what is right, to take the long view, to give of my best in all that the day brings and to put my trust in God."" --Queen Elizabeth II, Christmas Broadcast, 2002 "
