The Chair, by James L. Rubart

5 STARS!!!!!
ABOUT THE BOOK - 
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - James L. Rubart is a professional marketer, speaker, and writer. He serves on the board of the Northwest Christian Writers Association and lives with his wife and sons in Washington State.

MY REVIEW - Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! And an extra WOW just so you take me seriously! I was not too sure about this book because I read "Rooms" by the same Author and thought it was just OK. But this one was so much better than just ok, it was amazing! Part Christian psychological drama, part thriller, part suspense, part love story, and ALL on-the-edge-of-your-seat reading! I read this in 2 days and didn't even want to put it down when I had to.
Every single time I thought I had things figured out... I would be wrong! I did figure out a couple of details but certainly was fooled by most of it. 
This is a great Christian suspense book, very powerful book with a strong message., but even if you are not a Christian you should still enjoy reading this. This book has gotten great reviews!

Buy it here from B&N - HERE
