Overview


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.

    Great Book by a Great Author

    This book was written a while ago, but it is great to read still today. Bragging rights here..My Grandfather was Taylor Caldwell's accountant!
    They knew her well and had her out to the summer cabin many times. She did most of her writing at night time. They said she was a lovely woman. I love her books and they are 'feel good' books that delight you. If this is what you like to feel like after reading, you will like this book. Thanks for listening...

    Wonderful Book

    What a wonderful way to bring the Bible to life. I was completely engrossed in this book and it brought so much insight into the things I learned in my catechism as a child. Now that I am in my eighties, I feel like know all the characters so well.

    What a Wonderful Book!

    I read this book as a person of faith, and in that respect it moved me immensely. Even if one does not come from a Christian background, the amazing detail and vivacity with which Caldwell recreates the Mediterranean world of the Levant, Egypt, Greece, and Rome is incredible! Overall a pleasure to read!

    Fiction that is non fiction

    Taylor Caldwell used a skill that is very difficult. She has researched and put into print a fictional tale that is so very much non-fiction
    I've passed it on to others and will re-read it when it comes back.
    I'm not an avid reader but finished this in record time for me. Couldn't put it down.

    ¡MAGNIFICO!

    Este libro, como todos los de Taylor Caldwell, es magnifico. La autora recurre a la novela historica para hacernos revivir una época de gloria (la del cristianismo naciente) y toda la corrupción y decadencia del Imperio Romano. La historia de Lucano (San Lucas Evangelista), el primer reportero de que se tenga historia, por haber basado su Evangelio en entrevistas a terceras personas, es digna de ser leída no solo una, sino varias veces por una sola persona.

    This book, originally published in 1959, brings to life the Gospel writer St. Luke.

    Over a period of 45 years and extensive research into life in Roman times, Taylor
    Caldwell has created a very human portrait of St. Luke. Although it is a novel, it
    is based on actual events in his life. You travel with him through his belief in
    an "unknown God" as a child, his falling away and enmity toward God as a result of
    tragic events, and finally his return to faith and his work as the writer of the Gospel
    of Luke and the book of Acts.
