The Chair by James L. Rubart – Review

TheChair
Book 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.

Review:

What an interesting concept! Certainly something to make you think about. So far each book written by James L. Rubart has been extremely thought provoking, and this book is no different.

I really enjoyed this book.  It has a great plot. It is full of faith, forgiveness, love, and relationships.  It has a good guy, bad guy, mysterious lady, and adventures all wrapped in one!

It is a fun read. Just when you think you have something figured out, or one of your questions answered, there's a twist and you are back to square one looking for the answers.

Corin, the main character, is a thrill-seeker and in a way I feel like as I read through each of James L. Rubart's books that I am seeking a thrill from each of his titles. So far, I have not been disappointed.

There are several stories in one here, but everything seems to tie in nicely and by the end of the book there aren't any loose ends.

I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from NetGalley on behalf of B & H Fiction in exchange for my honest review.
