John s Gospel 1923 24 records that at the crucifixion of Christ the soldiers divided up his clothes among them the condemned were crucified naked save for a loincloth which was allowed to the Jewish victims and cast lots for the finest item a seamless robe Scripture is otherwise silent about the incident Congregational minister Douglas uses these verses as a take off point for this novel speculating about the effect of the robe on the fictional Roman officer who wins it and on the ripple effect that he in turn has on the other lives he touches I d already been planning to make this book the subject of my next retrospective review and for once I can nail down the date I read it fairly well it was a library check out and when I checked it out again yesterday to refer to the date card was still in the pocket but it worked out well that I m reviewing it on Good FridayThough I d heard of the novel before I was prompted to read it back when Barb and I were home schooling our girls as preparation for teaching American literature Raymond St John the author of the textbook I was using American Literature For Christian Schools my two star review of that text is here is very disparaging of Douglas work and I wanted to make my own judgment of it As was sometimes the case where critical assessments were concerned mine differed greatly from his in this instanceA basic literary conceit at the heart of this novel is the idea that a physical relic in this case the titular robe can wield a genuine spiritual influence That s an idea in tune with traditional Roman Catholic spirituality than with Protestantism and somewhat surprising in a novel written by a Protestant clergyman especially in pre ecumenical 1942 It s also somewhat surprising that Raymond St John a separatist Fundamentalist who elsewhere in his text expresses anti Catholic views doesn t attack this aspect of the book at all he reserves his ire for Douglas perceived association with the Social Gospel movement My own attitude toward relics is skeptical but I was able to take that element here as a sort of metaphor and move on And what we move on to is a profound examination of Christian conversion Christian living and Christian hope through the lives of well drawn vital characters set in a first century context but relevant for the 21st as well and for any other century Conversion is demonstrated not only to change one s ultimate allegiance but to necessarily change our behavior and our treatment of others and the coming Kingdom that s proclaimed as a central theme in both the Old and New Testaments is recognized as one that will be characterized by perfect justice and brotherhoodWhile Douglas re created Christian preaching and the religious language of his characters doesn t employ the in group jargon of modern day evangelicalism it does reflect the language and orientation that we read in the book of Acts and the various New Testament epistles and though as with other novels that use the New Testament as a background most characters and events here are fictional the historical framework in the Biblical material is respected This is solidly Christian fiction in the real not the commercial ECPACBA sense although a CBA store could carry it in the tradition of Lew Wallace s Ben Hur It s a finely crafted serious novel written in Realist fashion but with a powerful emotional wallop particularly at the end and the diction is modern so as not to pose any problem for contemporary readers It certainly deserves mention and in my opinion favorable mention in any survey of American fiction since World War I and I d recommend it to a wide readership Creating Dialogue for TV point for this novel speculating about the effect of the robe on the fictional Roman
