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 was born in a Navy hospital in January 1946 as his father served out his enlistment. Every male member from the previous generation of Bruce’s family served in uniform during World War II, and Bruce’s formative years were replete with family stories of service and sacrifice. When the call to arms came to Bruce in 1969, he served three years of active duty in the US Army. Thanks to the GI Bill, Bruce then added an advanced business degree to his undergraduate degree in journalism. His career has included copy and speech writing, electronic and print media management, and market and marketing research design and execution. Bruce established a specialized research practice and became a sought-after conference speaker and interviewee for media outlets such as CNN, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, The New York Times, American Banker, and others. In 2005, Bruce walked away from corporate America to return to his writing roots. Bruce has published two other books: Marriage Roulette, a nonfiction booklet aimed at his children’s generation, and Brother Daniel’s Good New’s Revival, a historical novel.
