(4 of 9 for author by title)
Green Light
Doctor Hudson’s Secret Journal
Published:   1932
Publisher:Thomas Allen, Limited
Tags:fiction, religion, romance

Forgive Us Our Trespasses is a homily in the form of a novel about a boy who makes his way in the world alone. It tells of the conversion of an embittered young cynic to a belief in the magic power of forgiveness, combined with a touch of mildly mystic communion with an undefined Deity. The narrative covers the ancestral background and the life up to the late twenties of a child born unhappily into a hostile environment and equipped with the soul of a rebel. ... The author demonstrates a thorough understanding of the cynicism fashionable in America after World War I as well as of the doctrines, practices and prejudices of both Protestant and Catholic believers of that time. Dinny’s chaste romances with four well-drawn and likeable women add considerably to the interest of this carefully crafted work.—www.amazon.com [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Douglas, Lloyd C.

Author Image

Lloyd C. Douglas was an American minister and author born in Indiana in 1877. He was married and had two children. He did not write his first novel until the age of 50 but was considered to be one of the most popular writers of his time. His works usually had a moral and religious tone. Two of his best known works were 'The Robe' and 'The Big Fisherman' which were made into major motion pictures. 'The Robe', written in 1942, sold over two million copies without a reprint edition. It held the number one position on the New York Times Best Seller list for over a year and remained on the list for an additional two years. The film version of 'The Robe' hit the screen in 1953 and starred Richard Burton.
