What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Regular viewing and reading of the Queen's annual Christmas Broadcasts inspired me to compile excerpts in the main themes. These themes cover a wide range of significant topics important for all people of any faith or of none.
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh (10 June 1921 – 9 April 2021) who died peacefully two months before his 100th birthday, the admired and longest-serving royal consort in British history, encouraged The Queen to talk about her Christian faith in her Christmas broadcasts.
Professor Ian Bradley, who preached for the Queen and for the Duke of Edinburgh as a visiting preacher at the Parish of Braemar and Crathie where The Queen visits the church for Sunday services when staying at Balmoral, said, “After her very personal account in 2000, she was encouraged to continue because I’m told she received 25 times more letters than usual from the public in response to that Christmas message than others, and she had huge support from the Duke of Edinburgh.” …
This book has excerpts from the Queen’s Christmas broadcasts throughout her long reign, as well as from her Easter broadcast in 2020. Her Majesty’s statements about the Christian faith are compiled here into commonly expressed themes. Those themes include Jesus Christ, service & support, peace & goodwill, faith & hope, light & life, truth & courage, love & kindness, compassion & care, forgiveness & reconciliation, respect & tolerance.
I include fuller versions of these excerpts from each of the Queen’s annual Christmas broadcasts in my companion book The Queen’s Christmas & Easter Messages. That book has a double-page entry for each year of The Queen’s long reign, updated annually. It is also available in a gift edition printed in colour.
The Renewal Journal website (www.renewaljournal.com) has links to free PDF copies in colour of both The Queen’s Christmas & Easter Messages and The Queen’s Faith, as well as to other books.
The Queen’s statements about faith and life are primarily given in the context of celebrating of Christmas, the annual global festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ.
Christmas and Easter are public holidays in many countries.
The Christmas and Easter stories, first told and written almost 2000 years ago, are now celebrated around the world. The date or year in our calendars and diaries reminds us of the approximate number of years since that historic birth celebrated at Christmas. That birth is unique as our calendars testify.
