Elvis has been dead 33 years, but his stepbrother is still on the road. For about 10 months of the year, the silver-haired evangelist crisscrosses the country, speaking in school auditoriums and preaching for “love offerings” in churches big and small, his message equal parts Holy Spirit and Elvis’ ghost.
A former heroin addict, he uses the story of his own journey from Graceland to grace as an example of Christ’s redemptive love. Stanley makes no apologies about using Elvis’ name to minister.
But there are those who feel he should. Some of those who were closest to Elvis question the sincerity of Stanley’s conversion.
