It is only afterwards that he discovers the robe has miracle qualities. The more he finds out about its former owner, the more admiration he feels for him. Morally compelled to change his values and a privileged lifestyle he has enjoyed since birth, he puts not just himself but all those he holds dear in terrible danger.Read Less

This is the story of the Roman Legionnaire who helps crucify Christ, wins Christ's robe by casting lots, and is then driven by guilt to investigate the life of Jesus. In doing so, the legionnaire witnesses some of the occurrences from the book of Acts. One of the best books I've read in a while. Highly recommended.

A story unfolds of a Roman Tribune soldier's search for the man who wore the homespun Galilean robe. The telling of a fictional story based on Scripture is open to the mind of the author. I read "The Robe" years ago. "The Robe" tells a beautiful story of the importance of planting seed into the Kingdom of God.

POWER OF THE SAVIOUR
BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF THE CENTURION WHO LED THE CONTIGENT OF ROMAN SOLDIERS WHO CRUCIFIED CHRIST. ALTHOUGH WRITTEN QUITE A FEW YEARS AGO IT STILL READS AS FRESH TODAY AS WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN. INSPIRATIONAL STORY NOT TO BE MISSED.
