Product Description

Today St. Luke is known as the author of the third gospel of the New Testament, but nearly two thousand years ago he was Lucanus, a Greek and a man of science. Taylor Caldwell portrays him as a man who loved, knew the emptiness of bereavement, and later traveled through the hills and wastes of Judea asking, "What manner of man was my Lord?" It is this Lucanus that Caldwell brings to life in her stirring novel.

Lucanus grew up in the household of his stepfather, the Roman governor of Antioch. He studied medicine in Alexandria and became one of the greatest physicians of the ancient world, traveling far and wide through the Mediterranean region healing the sick.

When Lucanus heard of the life and death of Jesus, he saw in Him the God he was seeking. To learn all he could about Jesus, whom he had never seen, Lucanus visited all the places where Jesus had been, questioning everyone who had known Him or heard Him preach, including his mother, Mary. When he had gathered all the information possible, he wrote what we now know as the Gospel according to St. Luke.

Publisher's Description

The world-famous novel about the triumphant story of St. Luke. Man of science, and Gospel writer. Today St. Luke is known as the author of the third Gospel of the New Testament, but two thousand years ago he was Lucanus, a Greek, a man who loved, knew the emptiness of bereavement, and later traveled through the hills and wastes of Judea asking, "What manner of man was my Lord?" And it is of this Lucanus that Taylor Caldwell tells here in one of the most stirring stories ever lived or written. Lucanus grew up in the household of his stepfather, the Roman govenor of Antioch. After studying medicine in Alexandria he became one of the greatest physicians of the ancient world and traveled far and wide through the Mediterranean region healing the sick. As time went on he learned of the life and death of Christ and saw in Him the God he was seeking. To find out all he could about the life and teachings of Jesus, whom he never saw, Lucanus visited all the places where Jesus had been, questioning everyone--including His mother, Mary--who had known Him or heard Him preach. At last, when he had gathered all information possible, he wrote down what we now know as the Gospel according to St. Luke. Taylor Caldwell has chosen the grand, the splendid means to tell of St. Luke. Her own travels through the Holy Land and years of meticulous research made Dear and Glorious Physician a fully developed portrait of a complex and brilliant man and a colorful re-creation of ancient Roman life as it contrasted in its decadence with the new world Christianity was bringing into being. Here is a story to warm, to inspire, to call forth renewal of faith and love lying deep in each reader's heart.

    I haven't finished this 560 page book yet (I'm on page 339). It has already become a book I am recommending to friends, as it was recommended to me. I love the mixture of history and the descriptions of the "world" and culture of the time. While I know that it's a novel, Taylor Caldwell spent 46 years writing it after reading (with her husband) 1,000 books on St. Luke. I trust that she has incorporated as much fact as possible. Reading this was on the heals of a Bible study "Jesus The One and Only" where we studied the book of Luke and much of the other Gospels. I've enjoyed these back to back and would recommend this for anyone who likes a book with a lot of information. I'm still in his younger years before Christ's resurrection, but anxious to see where this book takes me.

    Dear and Glorious Physician is a rich read and an informative account of the life of Luke. He was a physician, author of the Gospel of Luke and The Book of Acts, and a man of which little would be known without authors like Taylor Caldwell.
