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.
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 â€˜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.
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.
