And accompanying this commission is an extraordinary sense of divine direction to help reshape twisted lives and challenge corrupt systems.

    This was a book my dad had in his collection. When he was diagnosed with cancer I returned home to spend time with him.
    I was drawn to "The Presence" on his bookshelf right away. I could not put it down and finished it in 2-3 days. Some 8 years later,
    this is still my favorite book by T.Davis Bunn! I have read the other 2 that my dad had in his collection, now mine. I have purchased 3
    other Bunn books and enjoy each and every one. When I need a reminder of unshakable faith, I return to "The Presence" to remind me
    of the strength, courage and faith that the main character TJ had, often God requires of us these same traits! In my weakness,
    I aspire to be like TJ!

    Intriguing, hard to put down, touches your heart

    "The Presence" was a very appropriate title. The main character, TJ, is guided by a Presence that varies in intensity in different points of the novel. This book involves plots and sub plots, as well as strong supporting characters. The main character sets an excellent example of how to live a moral Christian life. The book is so intriguing, it's hard to close your eyes and put it down. Obviously, in depth research was performed in the constructing of this novel. Although a ficton novel, parts of the novel are based on fact. Reading this book may change the way you live your life. I would highly recommend it.
