    • Life-altering.For the first time, I feel like I have an inkling of what Christ's life was like, with whom he socialized, what he ate, saw, did, and where/and whom he taught. The relationships and accounts of Christ's sermons from fictional eye-witnesses were mesmerizng. All of the accounts are what we've read about in the New Testament all our lives, but the fictional stories of how those teachings changed the lives of humble people in forsaken villages in a forsaken countryside made me understa [...]

    • I really enjoyed this book, even though at times it was a bit tedious. So happy I finally read it! 😊

    • 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 childhood.I 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 t [...]

    • My interest to read this novel was sparked by watching the movie. The novel is so much better than the movie, no big surprise there! :-) Yet, I was surprised to see just how many characters and details had been eliminated in the movie version to make the plot fit into a 2-hour presentation. Douglas's novel is marvelous! The movie does not do such an emotionally-charged book justice! The main characters, Marcellus, Diana, and Demetrius, are not as valiantly noble as Douglas's words create them ou [...]

    • Upfront disclosure: I am not a Christian, and am not convinced in the divinity of Christ blah blah blah. In fact, I'm a fairly established atheist, but solid evidence would change my mind and I would acknowledge the truth of Christianity, but I wouldn't practice it because that's a whole other essay. But I can still appreciate historical fiction set in this time and with this subject matter. For instance, The Ten Commandments (both DeMille versions, silent and sound) have got to be the funnest m [...]

    • I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, there are some moments in the story with real pathos and heart--but on the other, the narrative is a bit rambling, and seems to cut off suddenly rather than end. Set in first-century Rome and Judea, the story follows Marcellus (a noble but somewhat arrogant Roman) and Demetrius (his equally noble but thankfully less arrogant slave), as Marcellus falls into political disfavor and is sent away to command a slovenly penal garrison in Judea--wh [...]

      Never have I read a book more deep, more powerful, more beautiful or more 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 me.I 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 Stephano [...]

    • First of all, I have to say I'm not particularly religious. I read this book on the recommendation of a fellow friend.It is a story of one man's quest to find truth in a corrupted world and his transformation from a skeptic to a believer, so in a sense it is a psychological and emotional character study of the protagonist Marcellus, a Roman officer. The catalyst for all this is his possession of Christ's robe that was won by drawing lots.I was really in the mood for a book that would take me aw [...]

    • One of the repeated discussions I have had and probably will continue to have with my dad is the subject of this book; would we believe in Jesus if we were alive when he was? This book covers all the bases of that question and then some. This book, written in the 1940s, shows the experience of a Roman Tribune given a post in the middle of nowhere Palestine and thrown into the world of "the New Testament" without knowledge, care or concern for the world and life of the Jews. He witnessed the cruc [...]

    • 4.5 star rating!A riveting historical fiction that answers the question what might have happened to Jesus' robe after His crucifixion, when the soldiers cast lots for it. Lloyd C. Douglas is a master storyteller!

    • In my book club, we decided to read this novel that was suggested by one of our members. I had a vague recollection of an old movie I'd seen when I was growing up, but didn't know "The Robe" was based on an actual book. I will admit, I wasn't too thrilled about the idea of reading it. (This is why belonging to a book club is so great makes you stretch & get out of your rut of always reading the same type of books) The story is about the Robe of Christ and a young Roman named Marcellus Gallio [...]

    • This historical fiction follows the story of the Roman soldier who won Jesus' robe at the foot of the cross. With devastating and life-changing results, as one might expect.I have read this several times but not for at least a decade, although I own a copy. In my current crusade to "reread what's on your shelf to see if it deserves the space," I picked it up thinking I would likely discard it after a few chapters. I was pleased to discover that it has captured my interest and imagination. It is [...]

    • NOOOO!!!!All I wanted was a nice, happy read! I just finished Les Miserables, in which all the characters die, and a book on Gandhi, which did a really good job of making you like him and than detailed his assassination. AND NOW ANOTHER ONE!!!!(view spoiler)[My two favorite characters faded off the screen halfway through the book, and then my two replacing favorites DIE at the end!!! (hide spoiler)]Why do I have to become so emotionally involved with words???This is not my real review, just a ra [...]

    • I LOVE this book. Set during the Roman Empire, under the reign of Caesar Augustus, Marcellus is assigned to the province of Palestine. Every soldier hates being assigned here. It's either bat-crap crazy or boring as heck. Israel is on the verge of total anarchy with zealots screaming to overthrow Rome. The people scream for the death of a man Marcellus never heard of. The people decide to release a murderer instead of letting this Jesus of Nazareth go--supposedly innocent of the charges against [...]

    • The Robe by Lloyd C. DouglasBook Review by EmilyHere's what I want to ask this bookWhere have you been all my life? I wonder how I never read this classic until now. It's amazing.Marcellus Gallio, a Roman Tribune, is ordered to crucify Jesus. Although he believes Jesus is innocent of any crime, he follows orders. During the crucifixion, he takes the Robe that Jesus wore.That dark day nearly kills Marcellus. He is overwhelmed with guilt and curiosity. Marcellus travels to Galillee to learn more a [...]

    • This is my "oldest" book. NOt by publishing date--but the first book I ever purchased for myself--at age 14 and I still have it.The story is based on Marcellus Gallo, a wealthy young Roman tribune wh oversees Christ's crucifixion. It traces how the crucifixion affects him and his family--first Marcellus is appalled; acting crazy; resentful and so on. Then he starts touring Galilee to find ou the background of Jeses. At the end, he does join the new Christian religion--as many Romans did.The stor [...]

    • I read this book many years ago after having seen the movie. I could not put it down. It is an incredible read and journey. I highly recommend reading it, especially this Christmas season. You won't regret it.

    • Much, much better than the movie, and I liked the movie

    • What a powerful story! This is a new take on the crucifixion of Christ and its aftermath. I never thought about the Roman soldiers who crucified Him. Although this is pure fiction, it seems terribly real. The story meanders quite a bit, and the writing is mediocre, but the subject makes up for all that. The book was copyrighted in 1942, and my copy was from the 44th printing, just three years later! That’s how popular it was in its time. The inside front cover of my copy has the nameplate of A [...]

    • An amazing story. Highly recommended.

    • My mother and I read this book sitting on a quilt 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 coconut with cinammon on top. She and I would wait for him to come to wherever we were staying for [...]

    • Read. This. Book.Whatever happened to the Roman soldier who won Christ's Robe? Lloyd C. Douglas imagines what impact such an event could have had on that soldier's life, how he couldn't just pass off the event as an ordinary execution, how he was determined to learn more about Jesus, how he struggled to accept the things he heard, but eventually couldn't turn back. How he gambled for Christ's Robe and won new life.Marcellus Gallio is the son of a senator and a tribune sent to Minoa to command th [...]

    • "Our life is like a land journey, too even and easy and dull over long distances across the plains, too hard and painful up the steep grades; but, on the summits of the mountain, you have a magnificent view--and feel exalted--and your eyes are full of happy tears--and you want to sing--and wish you had wings! And then--you can't stay there, but must continue your journey--you begin climbing down the other side, so busy with your footholds that your summit experience is forgotten." — Lloyd C. D [...]

    • I don't even know where to begin but with one bit of advice: read this bookThis book was on my high school reading list. I admit that I was a bit hesitant to read it at first, because it is quite a long book. However, when I got to the last page, I literally flipped through the blank extra pages at the end. I didn't want it to end. Ever.The Robe goes to the core of Christianity. It is probably the most biblical-inspired book you're going to find next to the Bible itself. Even dozens of Jesus' mi [...]

    • 3.5 starsThe Robe was a powerful, thought-provoking read, particularly for fiction. The plot follows Marcellus, a Roman legate/centurion, who crucifies Jesus Christ and later wins his robe. Interaction with the robe causes Marcellus to go mad and eventually seek more information about mysterious Galilean. He is joined by Demetrius, his devoted Greek slave. The book interacts with many familiar faces from Acts and takes creative license in picturing the conversations, personalities, and primary s [...]

    • As always, the book is SO MUCH better than the Movie. What a great find, I remember loving the movie when I was a young girl. This was a wonderful way to tell the story of Jesus, after the crucifiction and through the eyes of the people he had lived with and taught and healed, and a good reminder of what the Christian religion is truly about. Marcellus and Demetrius were wonderful heros, I adored Diana, hated the evil Roman Emporers and thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself into the life and times [...]

    • This is the 1st book I've ever read by Lloyd C. Douglas, and, WOW! This is one of the best books I've ever read! It's one of those that you never want to put down, and once you get to the end you are sad because it's over. Absolutely, wonderfully engaging characters, and the time setting is very interesting (around the crucifixion of Christ and a couple years afterward). I never thought about the first years of Christianity and how it grew into a religion after Jesus died.A side effect was that [...]

    • Wow. I have a lot of favorite novels. But this one? This one tops every single one of them! Lloyd Douglass wrote with such an intriguing writing style that it drew me in from the first chapter. I was disappointed in the old movie, to be honest, that was based off of this book. The book was breathtaking.I loved the main character and fell in love with the secondary, Demetrius. Literally. I cried when I realized I'd never see him again when I finished the book. His loyalty and integrity was justwo [...]

    • I read this to present to my book club next month. I realize that this style of writing is a little old fashioned because it is not the shorthand version written now, so it may take others a little time to get used to. And yet, it's hard to put it down.I found the cultural context most interesting. As I became immersed in the culture, I could feel how and why the teachings of Christ were strange to the Romans and the Jews. I saw how Christ's teachings became a danger to the Jew's economy and com [...]
