The Chair... a book review

If someone gave you a chair and said it was made by Jesus Christ,
would you believe them?

When an elderly lady shows up in Corin Roscoe's antiques store and gives him a chair she claims was crafted by Jesus, he scoffs. But when a young boy is miraculously healed two days after sitting in the chair, he stops laughing and starts wondering . . . could this chair heal the person whose life Corin destroyed twelve years ago?

As word spreads of the boy's healing, a mega-church pastor is determined to manipulate Corin into turning over the chair. And that mysterious woman who gave him the piece flits in and out of his life like a shadow, insinuating it's Corin’s destiny to guard the chair above everything else. But why?

Desperate, he turns to the one person he can trust, a college history professor who knows more about the legend of the chair than he'll reveal. Corin's life shatters as he searches for the truth about the artifact and the unexplained phenomena surrounding it. What’s more, he's not the only one willing do almost anything to possess the power seemingly connected to the chair.

I was hooked from the beginning!  Could you imagine.... a chair crafted by Jesus Christ Himself?  And think about it,  just a touch of the hem of His cloak healed the woman with the bleeding disorder.

Jim Rubart's writing is amazing!  Suspense, mystery, romance, danger, betrayal, but most importantly, healing and restoration is woven throughout this novel.  Being a fun, fast-paced read, this would be a great gift to all your readers this Christmas!

I look forward to reading his previous books: Book of Days and Rooms: A Novel.

Thank you to B & H Publishing Group and for my complimentary e-book for my review.
