The Book

A novel that offers a lively portrait of the realistic and fantasy life of a Pentagon staff officer.” – Madelyn R. Creedon, Former Assistant Secretary of Defense

Joel Alden has brought the craftsmanship of a West Texas mechanic to his job in the Pentagon when the President invites him to the White House. Everyone wishes he could tell the President something, the President says: what is that thing for you? Spanning from Texas to Washington, DC, Joel brings his whole life to bear on this question as he lives out the task of a lapsed Christian who must speak truth to the President.
