Item description for The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas...
Overview Possession of Christ's robe has a strange influence on the pagan Roman solder, Marcellus, who wins it in a dice game following the Crucifixion, when he embarks on a quest to uncover the truth about Jesus and his teachings. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
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.

Lloyd C. Douglas was an American author and minister. Religion was a strong influence throughout Douglas's life, and he served as a Lutheran clergyman for many years before changing denominations and becoming a Protestant minister. This religious influence is also clear throughout his work, written largely after his retirement from the pulpit. Douglas's four most popular works are Magnificent Obsession, The Robe, White Banners, and The Big Fisherman, all of which were successful upon publication and were eventually adapted for film. Douglas died in 1951 at the age of 73.
