Product Info:   Book Description
World-famous pioneering surgeon, tortured confessor, archbishop and miracle-worker–St. Luke is one of the most intriguing saints who suffered under the Soviets. Outspoken regarding his faith, he was exiled and tortured multiple times. Yet the authorities could not deny his exceptional medical skills: he was appointed as a chief surgeon overseeing the treatment of injured soldiers during WWII and received the Stalin award for his pioneering surgical work.

This book is the first presentation of his life in English. It documents his personal struggles, self-sacrifice and love for patients, miracles, and bold spiritual guidance during the Church’s most difficult period in Russia.
