At the height of his popularity, Lloyd C. Douglas was receiving on average a hundred letters a week from fans. One of those fans, a department store clerk in Ohio named Hazel McCann, wrote to Douglas asking what he thought had happened to Christ's garments after the crucifixion. Douglas immediately began working on The Robe, sending each chapter to Hazel as he finished it. It is to her that Douglas dedicated this book.

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. Set against the vividly drawn background of ancient Rome, this is a timeless story of adventure, faith, and romance, a tale of spiritual longing and ultimate redemption.

    This may be my favorite book ever! It was very uplifting it spoke to the depths of my heart and faith! I love a British narrator, the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because a couple of times when the narrator spoke a female line, I giggled a little at the sound of it.
