The Chair by James L. Rubart

imageimageThe Chair: A Novel by James L. Rubart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


If you were told that a certain chair was made by Jesus Christ and had healing power, would you believe it?
Corin Roscoe, an antique store owner, is given this chair and then begins his search for the truth. His life takes many unexpected and dangerous turns as others are affected by his search and desperate people try to get possession of the chair.

Healing broken relationships is the main theme of this novel and that is accomplished in a unique way by this author of other books such as "Rooms" and "Book of Days". I enjoyed his characters and storyline and was pleased with his ending.

I recommend this book as a "good read", but also as a parable on relationships.

This review book was provided by B&H Fiction but the opinion expressed was my own.


  1. I loved this book. It's a fast-paced suspense novel, but at the heart of it, the story is really about healing--both inner and outer. It was a great blend of suspense, action and a story of someone whose life and heart is unexpectedly transformed. It really made me wonder about the power of religious relics! The author has a great website and blog at

  2. Sounds interesting... I definitely need to read this one at some point!
