Publisher's Summary

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

Couldn't stop listening

What made the experience of listening to The Chair the most enjoyable?

The story was wonderful. I enjoyed the characters of two brothers and their lives together. The thought of the chair and powers it possesses was great all the way through the book. I have recommend it to everyone as a good read.

Very nice story

Interesting story - very pleasant listening experience. Mr. Rubart does a great job with the narration. I've had some negative listening experiences where the author narrates his/her own book, but Mr. Rubart does a good job here. This is not a gripping, on-the-edge-of-your-seat story, but held my attention to the end. It's a story of restoration. The protagonist and his friends are not Christians, so Rubart explores how non-believers respond to the concept that a chair would have the ability to heal, if it were, indeed, made by Christ. It's not preachy at all, IMO. I recommend it.
