Bully In The Pulpit is the story of Billy Ray Sinclair, a 19 year old boy living in rural western Arkansas in the depression years. He and his dysfuctional family are mired in the throes of poverty and despair and he wants out, but he has no money and little education.

He decides to seek his fortune in the 'moonshine' whiskey business and manages to get a job with the local bootlegger in hopes of learning the trade. But, alas, his plan gets him nowhere and he winds up in worse shape than before.

About this time, he meets and falls 'head over heels' in love with Miranda Weeks, a 16 year old beauty, the first 'encounter' for both of them. His awkward and inept attempts to court Miranda turns into one fiasco after another and he sees no way to ever get the girl's attention.

Meanwhile, a rogue, itenerate preacher comes to the little community and has taken complete control, terrorizing the poor sharecroppers, taking whatever he wants and bullying the local farmers into submission. Their vain and ill-conceived attempts to make the preacher leave, result in some unbelievable and bungled scenerios, none of which succed.

The preacher eventually crosses Billy Ray's path and a showdown is inevitable. But how can he stand up to this super madman? Will the rogue preacher continue to have his way? Who will ever be able to subdue this self proclaimed 'Man of God'? Will justice ever be served? Perhaps. Perhaps not.
