The Chair by James L. Rubart
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.

Corin is trudging through life, almost financially ruined, his relationships are struggling, and he is carrying an unbelievable load of guilt on his shoulders. He often wonders if it's even worth going on. His sleep is tormented by vivid nightmares that leave him exhausted.
Then one day an elderly woman brings an old chair to his antique store. She doesn't say much, just that the chair is meant for him, and the man who made it was the best carpenter ever.
What follows is a string of mystery, miracles, danger and personal discovery that astonishes Corin and his friends. This is an action packed story with a clear message ... and that is the importance of relationships.
The Chair is a fabulous story, I highly recommend this one.
