More than 6 million copies sold! The classic Christian novel of the crucifixion and one Roman soldier's transformation through faith.

At the height of his popularity, Lloyd C. Douglas was receiving an average of one 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 wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene -- a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity. Here is the fascinating story of this young Roman soldier, Marcellus, who was in charge at the crucifixion of Jesus. After he won Christ's robe in a game of dice on Calvary, he experienced a slow and overpowering change in his life. Through the pages of this great book, the reader sees how a pagan Roman was eventually converted to Christ.

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...

Description:

Virginia, the young daughter of a wealthy doctor's family, sees her life forever altered by the Great Depression. Forced to give up her own room so that relatives can move in, her resentment at those circumstances is altered as she helps her father, who spends his spare time giving medical attention to the people of "Soo City." Soo City is a makeshift camp near the Soo Line tracks. But her father's goodwill clashes with powerful people who wish the camp destroyed. The violent strike of workers in the grain mill district brings tragedy to the strikers, and her father is severely wounded while helping the people of Soo City. What happens next will challenge Virginia's fragile faith in God and man.

"In this seamless and well-researched narrative, Tatlock provides a compelling look at the Depression through a child's eyes. At the same time, she accurately conveys the exuberance, naïveté, humor and optimism typical of young teens." --CBA Marketplace

A Washington Post Notable Book of the Year

Named a Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Austin Chronicle, and Kansas City Star

Twin brothers Fred and George Brounian were once co-CEOs of a New York City software company devoted to the creation of utopian virtual worlds. Now, as two wars rage and the fifth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, George is in a coma; control of the company has been wrenched away by a military contracting conglomerate; and Fred has moved back in with his parents.

Broke and alone, Fred is led by an attractive woman into a neurological study promising to give him "peak" experiences and a newfound spiritual outlook on life. But as the study progresses, reality becomes increasingly porous -- and he finds himself caught up in what seems at first a cruel prank: a series of bizarre emails and texts that purport to be from his comatose brother.

Moving between the research hospitals of Manhattan, the streets of a meticulously planned Florida city, the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, and the uncanny, immersive worlds of urban disaster simulation; threading through military listserv geek-speak, Hindu cosmology, outmoded self-help books and the latest neuroscientific breakthroughs, Luminarium is a brilliant examination of the way we live now, a novel as much about the role technology and spirituality play in shaping our reality as about the undying bond between brothers, and the redemptive possibilities of love.
