THE ROBE by Lloyd C. Douglas (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“This is an entertaining story that brings us strong characters who follow the path they need to follow.” (JandysBooks.com)
A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ’s robe as a gambling prize, then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene’s robe. 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.

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.
