Additional information


Archdeacon Vasiliy Marushchak






This inspiring biography of a bishop and surgeon during the darkest years of Soviet oppression in Russia has been the most widely read and appreciated publication of Divine Ascent Press to date. 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 is the second edition and has been revised and expanded to include a service and an Akathist hymn in honor of St. Luke.
