The Chair

By James L. Rubart


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

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 the chair.

Book Takeaway:

I'd love to see the book restore relationships, with God and with friend and family. I'd love to see healing and freedom come from The Chair causing people to wrestle with their broken friendships.

Why the author wrote this book:

It started from an article I read about plows Jesus made lasting until the 2nd century. I thought, what if he made something that lasted until today? That led to the idea of a legendary chair being passed down for generations--a chair that had the healing power of Christ in it. And what if that chair started healing people?

Once my protagonist developed I realized what he wants most of all is the see the chair heal the person whose life he destroyed ten years earlier ... uh, can't tell you anymore than that!
