The Chair - James L. Rubart
If someone gave you a chair and said it was made by Jesus Christ, would you believe them?
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
