Lloyd Cassel Douglas (August 27, 1877 - February 13, 1951) was a noteworthy American minister and author. His written works were of a moral, didactic, and distinctly religious tone. His first novel, The Magnificent Obsession, published in 1929, was an immediate and sensational success. Critics held that his type of fiction was in the tradition of the great religious writings of an earlier generation, such as, Ben Hur and Quo Vadis. Douglas then wrote Forgive Us Our Trespasses; Green Light; White Banners; Disputed Passage; Doctor Hudson's Secret Journal; The Robe, and The Big Fisherman. The Robe sold more than 2 million copies, without any reprint edition.
