Brother Daniel’s Good News Revival

Brother Daniel’s Good News Revival

In the early summer of 1933, an 18-year-old naive Kentucky farm boy, Michael Boone, becomes a driver for a traveling religious revival troupe. As the summer unfolds and the itinerant group moves from town to town, he learns that things are not what they seem; primarily that the goal of the enterprise is making money, not saving souls and that hardly anyone in the group fits into a neat and normal family narrative. Michael, in turns, is exposed to religious hypocrisy, the world of good literature, the destructiveness of alcohol abuse, pedophilia, overt racism, first true loves, near tragedy and selflessness. He is also skillfully tutored in the art of seduction and sex. The full impact of Michael’s time with Brother Daniel’s Good News Revival is only learned many years after the summer of ’33. It is a revelation that shakes the foundation of the life he had since built.

Bruce Joel Brittain is an author, songwriter and musician. He earned a journalism degree in 1969 and then served three years on active duty in the U.S. Army, primarily as a journalist. His post-military career included creative copywriting, press relations and consumer research. In the latter category, he formed his own consultancy in Atlanta, Georgia, where he still lives. He built a successful business and managed it for over two decades. In that capacity, Bruce became a sought-after conference speaker and was frequently interviewed by national media outlets including CNN, The New York Times and NPR among others. Bruce's interest in depression-era history and the timeless issues of human relations created the initial story outline for Brother Daniel's Good News Revival.
