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 governor 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.show more

Review Text

El testimonio de la vida del gran sanador Lucano, más conocido como san Lucas, el tercer evangelista. En su espíritu habitaba la profunda sabiduría médica alejandrina. En sus manos tenía el poder de preservar la vida y vencer la muerte. Lucano había adquirido sus conocimientos en el poderoso y espléndido Imperio babilónico, cuna de la ciencia, y en la magnífica Biblioteca de Alejandría. Durante el largo viaje que lo llevaría desde Roma hasta Tierra Santa, Lucano se convirtió al cristianismo y utilizó su arte y devoción para aliviar la desesperación de aquellos que encontró en su camino. Una novela atrevida que combina de manera honesta la descripción de una sociedad cruel con la infinita ternura y humanidad de san Lucas.show more
