Simply the Best

This book has it all! It's Action! Drama! Comedy! Romance! And best of all, Historical Fiction. It is a story of a man who tested and tried religion and then accepted faith. But in the mean time he is faced with trials, danger, and love. All of it cast beautifully in the Roman empire. It is not another testiment of the Bible so much as the telling of one man's journey to acceptance of Christianity in the time immediately following the death of Jesus. Anyone, could relate to the main characters of this story. I highly recommend it.

Moving, and thought provoking

This book was recommended to me as the favorite book of my husband’s grandfather who is an incredible man. My mother also said it was one of her favorites, well I haven’t even finished it yet, I have about 8 hours left, but I still want to write a review. This book has moved me. When I listen to it I feel at peace and it is a sweet spiritual journey that has allowed me to get another perspective on the life of Christ. Everyone should read this book. Even when I am not listening to it I am constantly thinking about it. This book will stay with you forever I believe, and I haven’t even finished it yet. I can't wait to continue to learn from it. This is worth every second of your time. Experience the journey The Robe has to offer.
