Editorial Reviews

George Muller (1805-1898) was a German playboy who found Christ and gave his life to serve Christ unreservedly. His mission was to rescue orphans from the wretched street life that enslaved so many children in England during the time of Charles Dickens and Oliver Twist. Muller did rescue, care for, feed, and educate such children by the thousands. The costs were enormous for such a great work. Yet, amazingly, he never asked anyone for money. Instead he prayed, and his children never missed a meal.

This docu-drama presents his life story and shows how God answered prayer and met their needs. It is a story that raises foundational questions regarding faith and finances. Also included are two special documentaries on Muller and some of the lives affected by his work.

An excellent documentary of the life and times of George Muller, a Prussian-born, English man of faith and prayer who established orphanages in Bristol, England in the 19th century. Weaving together video of on-site locations, historical pictures, narration and drama, this well-done and interesting presentation is both challenging and inspiring as one sees how God answers prayer and provides for the needs of His children who trust Him. Two extra special features: one on Muller (28 min.) and the other with interesting testimonies of some of those influenced by his work (18 min.) are also well-done and an added bonus.

This powerful program chronicles the inspiring life of Christian evangelist George Muller who was born in Germany in 1805 and as a young man lived a life of sin and debauchery. Hoping to turn his life around, his father sent him to the university to study divinity. At a prayer meeting, he found fulfillment in God. Muller believed that his mission was to rescue orphans from the streets of Bristol, England, by providing free housing and education. The costs were enormous for such a great work, in terms of today's money, over one hundred million pounds. But the most amazing thing about his life is that he trusted God for everything, and God always provided. Pastors wonder if they will have enough money to complete their church's building projects or finance their programs. George Muller didn't. Without pleas for public support and with no government funding, he eventually provided accommodations for thousands of orphaned children. The program alternates between dramatizations and documentary footage with a male narrator visiting various historic sites.

The film provides an accurate portrayal of the life of this man of God and impresses upon viewers the power of prayer and the trials and tribulations of a life of faith. It presents a powerful testimony of what God can do through a person who lets God have His Way, challenging believers to walk by simply putting trust in God each day for their spiritual and material needs. Featuring beautiful on-location cinematography and lovely background music, this is an absorbing and inspirational biographical profile. The DVD extras include a bonus half-hour program on the life and legacy of Muller. This docu-drama won 2007 Crown Awards for Best Picture (Silver), Best Curriculum (Bronze) and Best Documentary over $50,000 (Silver). A worthy purchase for Christians, Churches, Schools and libraries the world over.

It seems that few of the people who have reviewed this film (on various sites) make note of the incredible contrast between what this man, George Muller, lived and witnessed the evidence of compared to what is preached and practiced in today's churches and Christian ministries. Muller believed that anything which God has blessed and called into existence, He will also provide for - especially financially! Muller never asked for money, never requested donations, never sent out mailers/newsletters identifying a need, never started a fund-raising campaign, never manipulated anyone to give money by sharing his own circumstances! He chose, along with his wife, to trust only God and make their needs known only to Him. As a result, every single one of their needs were met... often with abundance!

Over the course of his life, Muller gave away over $400,000 of his own money and supported thousands of orphans (feeding them, housing them, educating them, teaching them the Gospel, and equipping them with a trade so they could achieve in life) and he traveled to city after city (over 200,000 miles throughout the course of his ministry) sharing the Gospel, giving away tens of thousands of Bibles, sharing his life and working for the good of others - all without asking for a cent! Muller proved with his life, year after year, that God is well able to support His work. What an amazing testimony! This movie does a great job of introducing us to the man in a well organized documentary with dramatic sequences throughout. It will make you want to read up and discover more about his life and the love for God that inspired him in everything! Religious organizations (i.e.

A true "Hero of the faith" and I highly recommend this DVD to all people, to raise your standard of faith and understand that the Faith this man had, was not based on second-hand information or sermons--but he had a real "relationship" with his Savior and trusted Him explicitly with his life, and the lives of the children he was sent to be a covering for.

The history of his life, and how he started out and the change that occurred was nothing short of a miracle.

You cannot watch this DVD and not be moved to step back and examine your life and view your relationship with Jesus and your Father and be left longing for the relationship/faith journey that he embarked on, at the young age of 24. He will be considered with Biblical hero's, the likes of Job, Noah & Daniel ~ I am sure in the future that lies ahead.

An honor to watch and a wonderful example of faith.

You might say that the running theme of this biographical narrative is, 'God did the impossible through George Muller.' Admittedly, Muller was a very unlikely hero, but God was determined to get the orphans of Victorian England off the streets and cared for. This is really an amazing account of a man with a call and a mission, who raised hundreds of millions of dollars for the ministry without ever soliciting a dime. When he needed something, he just simply asked and God supplied it. There is something so liberating about simple faith and trust. This movie is very inspiring. Close, but not an exact replica of his autobiography.
