Some of T. Davis Bunn’s Best Selling Books
The Warning (Reluctant Prophet Series, Book 1)
This book was originally published in 1998. The main character of the story is named Buddy Korda. Buddy Korda is a good-natured banker who becomes one of the most unlikely prophets as you read through this fascinating story. Buddy experiences two weeks of nightmares and eventually starts to make sense of the disjointed images he has been seeing. The fragmented images start to fuse and begin to come into focus like an image projected onto a screen. The message eventually becomes unmistakably clear. “It is coming…..Forty-one days.”
This message leaves Buddy in a state of shock and confusion. He ultimately must decide whether to share this message and place his job, family and even his own life in jeopardy. Who would even listen to this dreadful prophecy about the financial downfall of America? Throughout this struggle, Buddy finds out that he cannot avoid God’s call upon his life. It is an intriguing tale where we see Buddy’s personal struggle of faith; while at the same time he feels the pressure of the future of a great nation being at stake and the lives of people he did not even know depending on him. What would happen if no one believed him?
The Ultimatum (Reluctant Prophet Series, Book 2)
In The Warning, we met Buddy Korda who received a message from God to warn the people of an impending economic calamity. The prophecy eventually came true, and the world plunged into a second Great Depression.
In The Ultimatum which was published in 1999, economic despondency has spread across America. 18 months after Buddy Korda had cautioned the nation of the impending economic disaster, he receives a new vision: in which he must call the nation to repentance and have an amendment explicitly protecting religious freedom added to the U.S. Constitution. The call of God upon his life, points Buddy to Washington, D.C., where his friends—including Linda Kee, who is a famous reporter familiar with Washington’s power structure—organize efforts which will eventually bring America face to face with its destiny and heritage. This extraordinary movement threatens to bring a transformation to the present political process, and the Washington power brokers who have seen it coming, will stop at nothing to keep the movement and Buddy from achieving success.

Marcus cannot believe how fast his investigation unravels a web of treachery that stretches from Washington D.C., to Europe, to Asia and then back to his own North Carolina backyard. The huge multinational sports company New Horizons has never lost a case since it has the money and power to hinder, manipulate, threaten, harm, or even eliminate, those who stand against its goals. However in this case they make the mistake of underestimating Marcus Glenwood.
