The crime of all crimes.
Wrongfully accused -
Unjustly tried -
Iniquitously put to death.
The story of Jesus.
What you have before you - A possibly life-altering reading experience that makes you realize the grammatical superfluity of the comparative for “beautiful”.
If you are an agnostic like me, or even an atheist, this is perhaps the closest we may ever get to understanding that perhaps, just perhaps there could have been a man or at some point in the future will be again a man/woman that was or will be ever so much more.
Jesus may not be the main character in The Robe 👘 but he is in the thoughts and minds of the main characters, most of all of the protagonists Marcus gallius and Dimitrius and does both control their actions and steer along the plot.
This is about Jesus, and that’s a dicey business.
Writing about Jesus one of the two might happen . The theme itself may have the reader love a merely average work, or hate even the most eloquent effort. After all, Jesus is virtually inseparable from religion and as such a topic of the utmost sensitivity. But that is exactly what the writer managed, to spin a story with historicity in mind yet love for the subject in his heart, separate from religious orthodoxy.
A novel about Jesus that I believe even a religious hardliner might appreciate, especially since for better or worse it is based on the books of the four evangelists with all the discrepancies and inconsistencies.

I enjoyed this book and the glimpse it gave into early Christianity and the lives of the followers of Jesus.

This novel helped me grow my understanding and feel for one way a Roman Catholic priest could be.
