This story, Taylor Caldwell's greatest historical novel, is based on the life of St. Luke and set against the colourful background of the Roman Empire. Born a Greek, Luke became the protégé and adopted son of the Roman governor of Antioch. His foster father sent the young Lucanus (as he was then called) to Alexandria to study medicine, and there he ultimately became one of the greatest physicians of the ancient world. After the death of Jesus, Lucanus embraced Christianity. The latter part of this rich historical novel describes the new Christian's pilgrimage to the Holy Land, where he sought out everyone he could find who had known The Master. He talked with Pontius Pilate, with Herod, and with Mary the mother of Jesus, and set down the record which we know now as the Gospel according to St. Luke. Here Taylor Caldwell has presented a fascinating portrait of a complex and brilliant man, living during one of the most dramatic man, living during one of the most dramatic and colourful periods in world history, and playing a vital role in the unfolding of the world's greatest story. Known for her great novels Dynasty of Death, This Side of Innocence and The Sound of Thunder, as well as many others, Taylor Caldwell visited the Holy Land in 1956 to study the background and setting of this novel, which will surely be ranked as one of her finest achievements.
