Product description

Review

James Rubart is one of my new favorite authors. The Chair has the same depth and creativity as Rooms, and it was impossible for me to think of anything else until I finished it. I can't wait for his next book! --Terri Blackstock, author of Intervention and Vicious Cycle

The Chair is a compelling story that will draw the reader's attention immediately and hold onto it until the end. I've enjoyed all of James L. Rubart's books, but this may be my favorite. --Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of the Striking a Match series

My kind of story: Thought provoking, filled with the truth of humanity and the compassion of Christ. --Bill Myers, best-selling author of Eli

From the Back Cover

If you were given an ancient-looking chair and told Jesus Christ made it, would you believe it?

When an elderly lady shows up in Corin Roscoe's antiques store and gives him a chair she claims was built by Christ he scoffs. But when a young boy is miraculously healed after sitting in the chair, he stops laughing and starts to wonder: Could this chair heal the person whose life I 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. But the mysterious woman who gave him the piece insinuates it is 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 reveals.

Searching for truth about the artifact and the unexplained phenomena surrounding it, Corin soon realizes he isn't the only one willing to do almost anything to possess the power that seems to surround to the chair.

"The Chair is a compelling story . . . I've enjoyed all of James L. Rubart's books, but this may be my favorite." -Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of the Striking a Match series

"My kind of story: thought provoking, filled with the truth of humanity and the compassion of Christ." -Bill Myers, best-selling author of Eli and The God Hater

James L. Rubart is a professional marketer, speaker, and writer. He lives with his wife and sons in Washington State.
