If you are wondering where all the miracles of today are, where is God in all of this thing called life? This book quickly answers the question? The answer is --Where are the people of faith? The story of George Muller is such a compelling story. I could not put it down and I keep coming back to it for inspiration.

In a world of all the Christian book fads, this reminds us of an earlier time of a simplicity of faith, faith that will change the world. This book is written well and reads very fast. Children over 12 should not have any trouble reading it and it could be read to children 5 and up. If you are looking for inspiration look no further. I highly recommend this book.

George Muller is a biography of a missionary to Bristol's orphans. The book starts with George at age 16 getting caught by the police for leaving numerous hotel rooms across the country without paying. It follows on with George as a divinity student at Halle University. There George acts like no other divinity student; he gambles, steals and drinks. He ends up in a Bible Study and after a few days becomes a Christian. George continues on with college all on his own without any help from his father. He watches as God supplies all his need at just the right time. God begins to call George to the mission field. George then becomes a pastor in Teignmoth, there he met and married Mary Groves. George and Mary lead a simple life with very few accessories. God then lead them to do missions work in Bristol. Once George and Mary moved, they started a Breakfast Club in Bristol. For the Breakfast Club they invited everyone in the neighborhood to come to their house for breakfast where Mary feed them and George would lead the devotions. They had the house stuffed in the morning with people even sitting on the floor. Through a five-year-old orphan girl George felt the call to work among the orphans in Bristol, which were of great number. The book follows on with all George and Mary's preparations for finding a spot and opening the orphanage. The orphanage grows into five houses in town, with a waiting list growing every day. But this orphanage was different then any other orphanage in Europe, the orphans that came, came free of charge. Never were the orphans required to pay anything. George would not ask for money from anyone but God. God never failed to provide meals for the children, and at just the right time.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
my mother passed this book along to me after she read it to my younger siblings. it is written at a "young adult" level, which was great, because the story was so gripping, I was glad to be able to read it through in a few hours. sometimes God writes the best story possible in the events of history through the lives of His people, and no amount of "literary prowess" is necessary which would get in the way of those pure and unadulterated facts.

This story has inspired me to: pray specifically and trust completely; give away every extra dollar that I have; get rid of at least half my books; stop reading books about the Bible, and read no other book than the Bible until I've read it completely through, or until another book seems as appealing, embracing the possibility that I may never read another book in my life; live a life of complete devotion to Jesus Christ.

My kids and I really loved this book, we originally got it from the library, but once we read it we were all in agreement that it was a must for our personal library. My children (8yr girl, and 6yr boy) learned so much about that time period and were really amazed at the transformation that took place in Mr. Muller's life--he started out as quite the rascal and was utterly transformed by meeting Christ! What a challenge to our faith--it really gave the children empathy for others as well as a new perspective on having faith. I was personally convicted on so many levels--we are looking forward to reading it again.

I first learned of George Muller when our pastor spoke about him during a recent sermon. Being someone who doesn't have as much faith as she'd like, I was very intrigued. I checked this book out from the local library. It was so interesting to me how this rebellious young man turned his life completely around after attending a bible meeting with a friend. Muller was so moved; he immedately felt the Lord calling upon him. (On a humorous note, I think of the scene from the Blues Brothers movie when a heavenly light shines down on Jake at church, sending him on his "mission from God," although I realize there truly is no comparison.) Once Muller answered God's calling, God answered each and every one of Muller's prayers with unbelievable timing. It was truly amazing to see how time and time again, God answered his prayers, whether it be food for the orphanage children or lifting the fog so Muller could stay on schedule.

It was interesting for me to note, however, that Muller did suffer great losses throughout his life. He lost his son, his wife, his second wife, and his daughter, all at early ages. In addition, he had serious health problems himself. I do not know if Muller prayed for their individual heeling or not. The prayers discussed in the book all dealt with Muller's mission for God, all of which were answered. Throughout everything, Muller's faith only grew stronger. I found this to be a truly inspirational book.
