Product Description

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?

Publisher's Description

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.

Acclaim for The Chair:

"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

"Romance, danger, mystery, betrayal . . . and most of all, a message of healing and restoration. Taking readers far beneath the surface, Rubart masterfully paints a picture of God's depth of love and longing for relationship with even those who are running away from Him as fast as they can. A tale of unimaginable sacrifice and unconditional love that will tug at your heart long after you've completed the last page."

--Kathi Macias, award-winning author of Deliver Me from Evil

"Rubart has a stellar ability to communicate spiritual truth through a highly original, well-told story. Relatable characters and a fast-paced plot provide all of the key elements for a compulsively readable tale."

--Romantic Times (4 1/2 stars out of 5)

"The message in the story is very powerful . . . the ending brought a huge smile to my face."

-- Kissed by Literature

"If you're not carrying all three of (James Rubart's) titles, you don't really have a fiction section."

--Christian Book Shop Talk

    Quite an intriguing story with a powerful message. Don't we all wish at one time or another for some magical, mystical solution to all our problems and a healing of all that plagues us daily? What if a special chair did exist and all it took was a time of sitting quietly and relaxing as the chair took away all that was bothering us physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and relationally? I'm rather certain no such chair exists but there is a place within the spirit of each of us where we can meet God and receive His special touch as we surrender everything to Him. Read along to follow Corin's journey as he seeks to find answers about the chair and longs for the relationship with his brother to be restored. I recommend this book particularly to everyone who has every struggled with a broken relationship.

    The Chair, a novel

    James L. Rubart ©2011

    B & H Publishing Group, Nashville, TN

    ISBN 978-1-4336-7152-4

    Ppbk 382 pp. plus discussion questions

    Jesus as a carpenter on earth would have done outstanding work, since that's how God always functions. So it's logical a chair Jesus made might still exist. That's an initial premise in this ‘difficult to put down' book.

    But Corin Roscoe doesn't believe in Jesus, the chair or the mysterious woman who gave him the ancient piece of furniture.

    Then a young boy who sits in the chair is healed of severe asthma. The healing becomes known and others want the chair, some for good and some for devious reasons. Corin begins to wonder what the chair might do for him---and a paraplegic twin brother. IF he can keep it hidden from the wrong people. And if the chair really does heal. And if he isn't killed by desperate and supposedly helpful people.

    The twists and surprises in this tale prove Rubart's skill as a writer of unusual stories that can impact readers in life-changing ways.

    I have read all three of James Rubart's books...all were very different in content and exceptionally unique. I hope he continues to write...I will plan to read every one.

    Corin runs an antique store. When an elderly lady he doesn't know brings him a chair and says it was made by Jesus Christ, Corin really doesn't believe her. She tells him he must always keep the chair and guard it by all means. When a boy sits in the chair and is cured of his asthma Corin wonders if the chair was truly made by Jesus. As the word spreads about the chair, Corin faces the temptation of wealth to sell it. Rubart is a great storyteller who weaves within this book mystery, romance, danger, betrayal, forgiveness, and family loyalty. If you haven't read one of Rubart's books, what are you waiting for?

    Love this author's ability to deal with every day human flaws such as unforgiveness, reconciliation, greed, pride and always bring it back to the only One who can redeem us and make us whole, Jesus Christ.

    So refreshing to be able to pick up a book that has plenty of action and drama without indecent language, gore, etc.
