The charge, as best as I can remember it, was that Douglas’s work was .

The charge, as best as I can remember it, was that Douglas’s work was naturalist and rationalist in its description of the miracles of Jesus, an allegation that in retrospect seems absurd, even in the Catholic press. A novel like The Robe revivifies the world of the Bible and reestablishes its contact with us and the relationship between the people who live in the Bible stories and our lives. This is no mean achievement. Jesus and his friends became real to me those late evenings in the quiet of my room in a way they had never been before.

Home Lloyd C. Douglas The Robe. The sensation of being alone and unwanted in an unfriendly world had left him. Demetrius rolled up the Robe and thrust it inside his tunic, pressing it tightly under his arm. The intimate touch of the garment relieved his feeling of desolation. He wondered if Marcellus might not let him keep the Robe. It would be a comfort to own something that this courageous man had worn. He was not lonely now. He hugged the Robe close to his side as if it contained some inexplicable remedy for heartache. Melas was standing in the corridor, in front of Paulus’ door, when he arrived at the barracks.

The world can’t be ruled by good will!’ ‘Has it ever been tried, Your Majesty?’ asked Marcellus. Well-at least it’s a dangerous thing to say,’ mumbled Tiberius; ‘and if he is fool enough to blurt that out in the presence of the Emperor, he is not likely to be prudent in his remarks to other people. ‘He might be tried for treason!’ feared Diana. Yes-but he wouldn’t care.

The Robe - Lloyd C. Moreover, the world he created was a world I already knew from my religion classes in the Catholic school-the world of the time of Jesus, of Rome and Jerusalem, of Greece and Galilee in the first century . we call it now, Common Era, afraid either of the Latin of anno domini or perhaps of offending unbelievers with a. reference to the Lord). But in my religion class Jesus and his contemporaries seemed part of another world and another species; the characters in The Robe, however, were as real as my neighbors, my classmates, the girl down the street.

You have to remember that this is a fiction, not the Bible. As a fiction, it carries well the message of the Bible. All the people in the book did not have the Bible and their knowledge of Jesus and His Kingdom were not deep. I thought it was amazing that they believed after just hearing about Jesus and His works from other people. I thought that sure had to be the work of the Holy Spirit. I can see that the first church would have been something like this. The book presents well the era and what living conditions might have been like at that time. A great book, especially if you are a Christian.

First, DO NOT BUY THE KINDLE VERSION. The Kindle version of this book is almost unreadable. It appears that a hard copy was scanned without any review or copy editing. Virtually every page includes one or more spelling or grammatical errors as a result which is quite distracting. The book itself would have benefited from an editor; the voice shifts randomly to second person from time to time and the story line while largely sequential in time has portions that are not linear. The history of the early Christians is interesting but the story is much too long and tortured.

I still love this story--- but this kindle book needs serious editing. With so many spelling errors, I find it hard to read.

This is my favorite book! I've read it several times in print and this is my first time reading the e-version. Douglas connects so many stories within a man's journey to discover who Jesus was. He reveals a realism and lights up a journey of discovery and faith quite possible for early Christians to walk. I also enjoy Douglas's logical and reasoning mind as he looks at the experiences of Christ from a different perspective.

One critique I have of the e-book: there are so many typos and misprints, to the point of distraction. It makes some passages difficult to read and understand. I hope the publisher fixes this soon. I was expecting better quality for the price of the e-book.

When I reached chapter 12, I'd already submitted over 170 corrections to the e-Edition. The Robe is an enduring classic which I thankfully had found a paperback copy with corresponding pages to the E-edition. The story itself is again very different from the movie but has wonderful character development. The movie despite Richard Burton and Jean Simmons pales in comparison to this wonderfully written book. On to the kindle edition -- this book was clearly scanned and never edited. There were many common and easily rectified mistakes such as missing quotations marks. However, there were more blatant mistakes that included words that are not in the English language and most commonly the letter "l" in place of an exclamation mark. As I make my way through the e-edition I will continue to submit any errors that I notice in hopes that someone will edit this book. For now, if you are going to purchase it, by a paper copy (also available on Amazon). If I noticed that the errors I've submitted are fixed, I will most definitely edit this review. Until then, the paperback copy of this book is the way to go :)!

This book earns five stars from me because I didn’t want the story to end. How do you tell the story of Jesus from a fresh perspective? It would seem to be an impossible task but this story succeeds. Reading about how Jesus’ death and resurrection might have affected first century Romans, Jews and Greeks was both heartbreaking and exhilarating. I laughed, I cried and I felt so much more as I read this. The only disappointment was not knowing exactly what happened to Demetrius the slave who just happens to be my favorite character. A sequel perhaps? Demetrius travels to Greece with his mother’s ring, finds Theodosia and of course ‘The Big Fisherman’ should have a part as well as the Robe.

I love The Robe. I've read it many times, and I've seen the movie several times as well. The movie doesn't follow the book very faithfully, but it's a reverent and beautiful story in its own right. But this Kindle version is terrible. I've read the book so many times the numerous spelling and punctuation errors don't bother me, but even I have trouble with some parts, following the story. For someone reading the book for the first time, the grammar and punctuation and eccentric spelling and nonsense words are going to be a serious obstacle to understanding the story. A mistake or two is one thing, but there are mistakes on almost every single page, up to and including things like the word "your" instead of the correct word, "tour." I could write several paragraphs outlining all the mistakes, but suffice it to say, if you are not very familiar with this book and very tolerant of grevious errors of spelling and grammar and wrong words on almost every page, you should not get this copy. Buy the hard copy instead.
This was one of the most riveting and meaningful books I have ever read! If you've seen the movie and liked it ... you should LOVE the book. If you've seen the movie and hated it (and thought it fell so short of what the story actually is) ... you should LOVE the book! I hate to give books away, especially since part of my love for this book came in the fact that I had no idea what it was about and was surprised by the story line. I suppose I didn't read any of the back cover and had a book with no picture because I really had no preconceived idea of what the book would be about and it turned out to be the most amazing, engaging story ... of one I have actually known my whole life! It is definitely one of my top five books of all time!
