The Chair - James L. Rubart

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?
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.

MY THOUGHTS:   I was a little skeptical about reading this book.  It's a Christian Fiction book, I've not had too much good luck reading these.  But I got and read it.  It's a really good book.  A little slow in the beginning, but picks up later.  Corin has lots of questions and not answers.  And everyone he goes to either can't help him or they want the chair for their own.  But Corin plods along and finally gets his answers.  I give this book 4.....

This book is for 2 of my reading challenges....
