Originally published in 1995, The President reads like today's newspaper.
Mid-way through his term, a secular-humanist President becomes a Christian and has to decide how his new worldview must change his policies.
His wife, children, siblings, staff and the entire nation grapple with how his new faith informs his actions.
Meanwhile, terrorists are plotting to detonate a nuclear warhead in New York.
The many strands of the story all come together in Manhattan as the terrorists use the World Trade Towers to launch their attack, the center of action is a place called Ground Zero and one of the characters yells, "Let's Roll" near the end.
The President is a gripping action thriller with a strong Christian message for the individual and the nation.

Parker Hudson lives in Atlanta with his wife. They have five grown children. He is in the commercial real estate business, and the family attends Church of the Apostles, whose founding rector is Dr. Michael Youssef.
After attending London School of Economics as a Marshall Scholar (1968-70), Parker served for three years as the Communications and Intelligence Officer on the USS Wainwright (CG-28), based in Charleston, S.C.
Parker has over thirty-five years experience in all aspects of commercial and investment real estate, in both the U.S. and Russia.
In addition to his first novel, On The Edge, Parker is also the author of The President, about a secular-humanist President who finds himself beset by international terrorists and domestic gridlock, then is changed by God's touch and has to find a new course for himself and the country, leading our nation back to Biblical principles.
In his collection of short stories, Ten Lies and Ten Truths, Parker uses fiction to engage the reader in discovering the truth about ten important subjects, rather than continuing to believe the common wisdom.
Over the years, in addition to research and writing, Parker has enjoyed flying, scuba diving, teaching and racquetball.
