A true star, Brent had arrived, but a downward spiral ended in a terrible accident and six long years behind bars. Then God finds Brent in prison, and on release he sets himself up with a small business and volunteers with a local theatre group.

Publisher's Description

An entrepreneur from Poduncksville with a vision teams up with an actor just out of prison and a has-been scriptwriter--is their effort truly inspired or doomed from the start?

A true star in every sense of the word, Brent had arrived--more enthusiastic fans with each new movie, a host of friends among Hollywood's elite, and more money than he could spend. He didn't even notice the signals of the downward spiral that ended in a terrible accident...and six long years in prison.

But God finds Brent, and it is in prison he is transformed. On release, he sets himself up with a small lawn service business and volunteers his experience and acting skills with a local theatre group.

Celia had thought the inner and outer scars left by the accident were far beyond forgiveness--how could she ever find it in her to absolve Brent simply because he asks?

A Christian businessman, Bobby Dupree has a string of entrepreneurial successes behind him. Then he is challenged with another venture--one that puts him squarely in the middle of an industry totally foreign to his experience. How can he make this story into a film when he doesn't even know where to begin?

Thus begins an odyssey bringing some very unlikely people together to do something bigger than any of them could have imagined on their own. Their endeavor pits faith and vision against unlimited money and power thrown against this new upstart company from Nowhere called Shoestring Productions.

My Soul to Keep by Davis Bunn is a thoroughly enjoyable novel, bringing strong biblical themes to a Hollywood setting. Brent Stark, a former movie star with a rough past, demonstrates how God’s love can totally transform a person. One poignant aspect the author brings forward is a seemingly accurate portrayal of Hollywood—with people frantically searching for happiness, willing to do anything to get ahead, and selling their souls—all the while clearly pointing to the only thing that will really bring them joy: God.
This reviewer would have preferred that Bunn put more details into the story about Brent and Celia’s relationship. There is some development of their romance, but not much at all until the last couple of pages. My Soul to Keep skillfully lays bare how powerfully God moves, bringing down man’s best laid plans. Highly recommended. – Melissa Hellen, Christian Book Previews.com

Publisher's Weekly

In this page-turner reminiscent ofThe Devil Wears Prada , Bunn alternates between the story of Brent Stark, an Oscar-winning actor and recovering addict who has converted to Christianity in prison, and Shari Khan, a Hollywood underling looking for her big break. When a Nashville-based businessman decides to start a film company, he asks Brent to direct the first movie-a Daniel Boone biopic that eschews "political correctness" and returns Boone to "the pedestal." Conversely, Shari uses knowledge of this independent venture to catapult herself to the upper echelons of the major studio where she is a lowly personal assistant. Soon enough, she is spearheading efforts to get the studio's own Boone biopic, one that vilifies Boone and sympathizes with Native Americans, released first. Bunn's treatment of the ensuing David and Goliath drama is well-paced and entertaining. This novel, like the Christian film at its center, provides an alternative for conservative Christian audiences looking for entertainment that reaffirms both their political and theological values. The Hollywood insiders here are self-serving criminals who cynically promote liberal values in their films, while the Christian filmmakers are stratospherically successful, wealthy, and the beneficiaries of many miracles, all of which affirm that God is in their corner. While not to all tastes, this novel is sure to please fans and increase Bunn's readership.(Sept.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

    MY SOUL TO KEEP

    Davis Bunn

    Big Man in Hollywood gives us a view of the battles between Ethics and Profit, Christianity and Not-, as He journeys to understanding His own goodness. A solid book for anyone in Recovery, or their support group, and an inspiring read.

    The secondary drama surrounds copyrights, contract negotiations, ascending career paths and the attempts to kill the best, the better, stifling not only creativity but a Global maturing in cultural goodness and enlightenment, a revealed thought worth visiting.

    Hollywood and the scenarios to Hollywoods high stakes gambles for profit are the backdrop for this critical need to connect with the Peoples of the World. The underwave is the reason each wants to connect, and the direction each inferred reason will shape the outcome of the Age, and its duration as a sustainable World Culture.

    An easy read, it is an exposing view of Hollywood as a Global Business, and World culture-shaper.

    This book is very well written, the characters are believable, and the plot is well developed - it's action packed! The story line produces the kind of result that inspires all of us to take God at his word in our own lives and see for ourselves that with God all things are possible.
