by Archdeacon Vasily Marushchak

The inspiring biography of a bishop and surgeon during the darkest years of Soviet oppression in Russia. St. Luke endured unthinkable tortures at the hands of the atheistic state due to his outspoken confession of Christ, but his pioneering work as a surgeon gave the lie to his persecutors’ separation of faith and science. This book documents his personal struggles, self-sacrifice and love for patients, miracles, and bold spiritual guidance during the Church's most difficult period in Russia. Includes a service and an akathist hymn in honor of St. Luke.
