I started to read this book on or about Feb 14, 1945. On Feb 17, 1945, I said: "I got a lot read today in The Robe. Not so good. but it is OK, I guess. Simple, I think. It is a story of Jesus. It runs too much according to pattern--the known life of Jesus is woven into the main characters' life. On Feb 19, 1945, I said: "Read a lot in The Robe today. Almost finished". On Feb 19, 1945, I said: Finshed The Robe. OK at the end. But as a whole not good. Ben Hur was better. This book could have made better use of the Bible. ( )

This was a fantastic story that is compelling and draws the reader into a relationship with the characters. Well written and worth the time to read. ( )

The story of the soldier who gambled for Christ's robe and won a new life
  kijabi1 | Jan 4, 2012 |
This is the best book I've ever read (excluding the Bible) and I have to say I'd recommend it to anyone. The writing can be a little dull, and there aren't any picturesnor is there an excess of white space, but it has really good humor and illuminates so much about the teachings of Jesus. Even if you aren't a Christian I'd still recommend it. ( )

Dedicated with appreciation to Hazel McCann, who wondered what became of The Robe.
First words
Because she was only fifteen and busy with her growing up, Lucia's periods of reflection were brief and infrequent; but this morning she felt weighted with responsibility.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395957753, Paperback)

A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe-a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity and is set against the vividly limned background of ancient Rome. Here is a timeless story of adventure, faith, and romance, a tale of spiritual longing and ultimate redemption.
