Overview
The patron of desperate causes, Saint Jude is best known for his miraculous powers of healing and rescue, and has become a symbol of hope for children with cancer, people with AIDS, and sailors lost at sea. Yet the history of this apostle remains enigmatic and obscure. In this riveting investigation of faith and legend, award-winning journalist Liz Trotta follows in the footsteps of the New Testament's Jude through Italy, Turkey, the lands of old Armenia, and the United States. Part detective story, part pilgrimage, Jude unravels the mysteries of history's most elusive saint and investigates his lasting attraction for those who still believe in the healing powers of faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Jude: A Pilgrimage to the Saint of Last Resort  Nov 26, 2003
I was disappointed by this book. It lacks the compelling flow of Walking the Bible, or of John McPhee's books. It drifts from one shrine to another and seems to make the same generalizations at each one. Recommended for people who are fascinated by the minutia of St. Jude.
 
An exceptional book about about the Saint of Hope!  Jun 23, 1999
Liz Trotta has given us an exceptionally fine -- magnificently written -- account of Saint Jude's Mission as she(herself)explores the routes of what is known of his Apostolic travels. Her book is a masterpiece in calling attention to this much neglected SAINT OF HOPE as he carries out Christ's instruction to him and the 11 other Apostles.
 
Wonderment and passion for the non-believer as well.  Mar 9, 1999
I am neither a Catholic nor a believer in St. Jude, but this book is wonderful historical, anthropoligical and socialogical study in how Jude survives in legend and in devotion. The author writes beautifully, elegantly, magically and shows the how the inspiration of Jude provides comfort and solace to his followers. The beauty of St. Jude is not found in his large deeds, but in his personal and practical assistance to the afflicted. His small intercessions are not trivial, they are evidence of his kindness and his democratic accessability to all.
 
Well researched book  Feb 23, 1999
This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in St. Jude. For those who are not too familiar with this "behind the scenes saint", this book will be enlightening. The book is well written and well researched.
 
More comprehensive than Orsi  Jun 15, 1998
I would say that Liz Trotta's work is more comprehensive than Orsi's Thank you St. Jude. Orsi spends his energies on the CLaritian Shrine of St. Jude in Chicago. If you read his book you would not know that there are numerous shrines of St. Jude: Baltimore, New York, Dominicans in Chicago, San Francisco. Trotta's work devotes chapters to all of these. Almost every story of St. Jude is recorded in her Jude. I believe that as a journalist she has a different mission from the Scholar, Robert Orsi with all his footnotes and bibliography. Both serve devotion to St. Jude! But with different styles and energies.
