My Soul to Keep

by Davis Bunn

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


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

Book Jacket:

Brent Stark thinks his days of starring roles are over until God--in the form of a visionary tycoon--offers him the role of a lifetime. Celia Breach vows never to forgive Brent for the hurts he inflicted. Can she manage the unthinkable and trust him again?

Bobby Dupree, a southern entrepreneur with a revolutionary idea for filmmaking, sets out to make a new kind of movie. He has all the faith he needs, but none of the know-how.

Shari Khan is determined to succeed in Hollywood at any cost. Backed by a giant Hollywood studio, she makes it her personal mission to destroy Brent's "shoestring" production.

So begins the battle: an unlikely group of has-beens, armed with only faith and vision, against all the money and power Hollywood can throw at them.
