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.

Good story, but the progression was slow.

This book is an exceptional book that speaks of forgiveness and the restoration of broken relationships. I found this book to be irresistablly interesting and a very endearing. James Rubart is an excellent writer and manages to keep the interest level of the reader throughout the entire book.

great plot but very poor delivery. no sizzle, no steak. if this plot was in the hands of a Dean Koontz or some other bestselling author it would be a monster hit, but this is terrible.
