"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 protege 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 Christians's  pilgrimage to the Holy Land where he sought out everyone he could find who had known The Master."
