About this Item

Special Edition For Peoples Book Club Members; Red Cloth Boards With Titled Gilded In Black Box On Spine; Front Cover Has Authors Signature Embedded In Cover; Endpages Have Map Of Roman Empire In The First Century; Gifting On Front Past Down "The Theme Of This Novel Is That Of The Greatest Story In The World - The Revolution Which Followed The Death On The Cross Of The Galilean, Jesus. Marcellus, A Young Roman Tribune, Reluctantly Plays The Part Of Executioner, And The Deed Leaves Its Mark On Him. The Instrument Which Changes His Life Is The Robe Of The Dead Jesus, Which Is Gambled For By The Soldiers At The Foot Of The Cross. Its Possession Heals His Spirit And Turns His Mild Compassion Into A Fervent Interest As He Meets The Companions Of Jesus In Their Homely Surroundings And Hears From Them The Sayings Of Their Departed Leader. Gradually, As The Full Story Of Jesus Is Revealed To Him - Of The Miracles Performed On Members Of Their Company, Of His Reappearance Among Them After His Death, And Of The Secret Faith Which Is Spreading Throughout The Countryside And Beyond - Marcellus Finds Himself A Convert To The Christian Belief, Just As His Cultured Greek Slave, Demetrius, Has Been Before Him. His Betrothed, The Patrician Diana, Shares His Fate As A Christian Martyr. The Theme, Though Familiar, Has Never Been Handled Withe More Simple Sincerity Or Made More Utterly Convincing. A Life-Time Of Thought And Research Has Made It The Author"S Longest And Most Important Work. Bookseller Inventory # SB0000478
