My mother and I read this book sitting on a uilt pallet out in the heat with a pitcher of iced lemonade in the summer in Brookshire Texas She would drive us out to wherever my father was drilling an oilwell to bring him a large picnic basket of fried chicken potato salad cornbread fruit and several vegetable dishes She would also include two custard pies one chocolate laden with butter and one coconut custard with cinnamon and nutmeg on top She and I would wait for him to come to wherever we were staying for the week and read books that we had gotten for ourselves at the Houston Public Library which was like going to heaven for a 10 12 year old boy She read The Robe first and asked if I wanted to and I did which than anything just added to my appreciation of history especially the history of that period I would recommend it to any young person brought up in a religious Christian household which will probably extend his or her interest in religious history later perhaps leading to books such as The Silver Chalice uo Vadis Barabbas by Lagerkvist and my favorite of this sub genre The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis

Never have I read a book deep powerful beautiful or moving than the Robe Besides the bible of course;Reading this powerful piece of literature moved me in ways that no other book but the Bible has ever moved meI read my Bible God's Word every day Most of the time sometimes it seems like I really can't relate to the people and stories that I read in it and I feel distant from them After reading the Robe and following along with such great men as Peter and Stephanos and taking a front row seat at some of the most famous and powerful moments of Jesus's life such as the feeding of the 5000 healing the woman with the issue of blood of 12 years and Jesus rebuking the temple for its evilness and treachery I no longer feel this distance between myself and these great times and people of the past Jesus died for the world and paid for our sins thereby making the one and only way into heaven it is true but He also did so many great things miracles and wonders that are often told about but many times never brought to life in our minds The Robe brings you the grassy hillsides and placid waters of Galilee while Jesus preaches about forgiveness and a better and never ending kingdom and the golden spheres of Jerusalem while my Lord and Savior was crucified for the sins of the world to the beautiful garden where He rose from the grave and conuered deathThe characters of The Robe were all brilliantly done and I found myself sympathizing and bonding with each and every one of them; my favorites being Jesus of course Marcellus and DemetriusThe ending without giving any spoilers away really surprised me but also moved me greatly to praise God for His great love and mercy so that when we die we need not fear death because we know where we are going to live; in heaven for eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus ChristThe Robe is a must read for any child of God but also for those who do not believe for by reading it I hope that many will be brought to God and receive the greatest gift ever given; the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord God bless Amen

Lloyd C Douglas didn’t take up writing till he was fifty That astounds me This is as fine a novel as any produced by someone who had been scribbling since childhoodI hope most of us are familiar with the plot of The Robe since it’s the basis for one of the most sweeping epic films of Old Hollywood Marcellus Gallio is a high born somewhat indolent Roman Tribune who gets shipped to the fractious province of Judaea and is conscripted into helping execute a young Jewish man accused of treason and blasphemy The soldiers gamble for the crucified man’s few possessions and Marcellus gets his robe—a remarkable garment woven without seams But when he touches it a mysterious madness and a sickness comes upon him The dead man was named Jesus of NazarethMarcellus is joined on this venture by his loyal slave a Greek named Demetrius who is deeply touched by the Nazarene and desperate to learn all he can about him Meanwhile Marcellus’ family and friends back in Rome struggle to stay in the favor of mad Emperor Tiberius and Gaius Tiberius’ depraved heir apparent view spoilerUnlike the film version Caligula doesn’t show up until almost the end The character in the movie is a combination of him and his uncle Gaius which is a bit confusing since Caligula’s real name was also Gaius hide spoiler
