VERY soon after the decease of my beloved father-in-law I began to receive letters pressing upon me the desirableness of issuing as soon as possible a memoir of him and his work. Read the first page

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This biography is probably the very best written on this great man of the Christian faith written by a former colleague of George Muller and someone who knew him best. Buyer's should be aware that the style of writing is that of 1899 and is the authorised version but reprinted in 1999. A little tedious in parts as the author spends considerable time on each (if not all) of the stages of George Mullers life. Any student of Christian life and faith (and of this Man in particular) will not be disappointed..

We can learn much from the true spiritual giants. GM was one of them. Through the Spirit and discipline he succeeded to serve God in spirit and in truth. It's doable!

A Glorious Biography! Shows how Muller's faith moved mountains! March 9 2006
By Aimee Thor - Published on
Format: Paperback
This powerful biography gets to the real story behind the legendary sinner-turned-saint, George Muller. This bio is a reader's dream! The author has a masterful way of turning a phrase and more importantly he shows us how and what and who made Muller who he became--a man of God extraordinaire. I was deeply moved by his story. The faith that distinguished his Christianity from mediocre believers of his day was unclouded by sentimentality or mystical notions, it was steeped in Scripture and bathed in the love of Christ. A fiery life that I will refer to when I need an inspirational pick-me up. A wonderful book that truly brings glory to God!

Much more than I expected! July 10 2007
By Tyce E. Jensen - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book looking for anecdotes of some amazing ways God answered prayer in George Muller's life, especially ones that could be used as illustrations for teaching, sermons, etc... What I didn't expect was God to work in my heart so much while reading it. The book certainly contains many amazing accounts of how God provided for George Muller and his ministry, but more than anything the book is a powerful narrative of how God responds to faith and prayer. Muller's life goal was to show that God is a living God who hears and answers prayer, and God richly blessed this life of faith.

The refreshing thing about this biography is that you learn just as much about the almighty God whom Muller served as you do about Muller himself. The author also often steps out of the narrative to help the reader to apply lessons from Muller's life. However, these asides never feel forced or interrupt the flow of the narrative, they only add to the reader's enjoyment and edification. I'm certain that the writing of this book itself was bathed in prayer, and it will show in the heart of the reader.

As mentioned before in other reviews, the language is a bit formal, as was common style in the late 1800's, but it's still very accessible, even to High School students. I heartily recommend this book!

Much more than a biography! May 21 2007
By Diane Y. Pace - Published on
Format: Paperback
The ultimate George Muller biography, written by a man who knew him, and the one approved by Mr. Muller's own son-in-law. This biography breaks down George Muller's life into sections and explores each section thoroughly. Tremendous insight is gained into why and how he became a great man of faith and prayer. And as if the unfolding of this isn't enough, there's the added bonus of author A.T. Pierson's insightful commentary on biblical principles for deeper-level Christian living. I am reading this book a second time just to take in and digest all he has to say about these things, especially in relation to following the call of God on one's life. I was not expecting this from a biography and all I could think while reading it was "Where was this man when I was starting out?" It's like sitting at the feet of your own personal mentor. While some of the writing style is a bit "too late 1800's" it does not detract from what is being said. This is an extremely rich read. (The DVD "Obstacle to Comfort" serves as a great companion to this book.)

Inspiring Read Dec 25 2009
By R. T. Nolin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The life of George Mueller is a fantastic example of how God will accomplish mighty things through those who willingly surrender to Him. By an incredibly substantial life of faith and prayer Mr. Mueller demonstrates the wonders achieved by God's grace in those truly wanting to glorify God. Although Mr. Mueller is well known for his work among the impoverished children of London, the orphanages were only a vehicle by which an unbelieving public could see a tangible result of God's intimate concern for His creation. The principles that hold true for Mr. Mueller of the 1800's are no less true now for all those who submit to the sovereign will of the Lord. In this way, the biography of George Mueller becomes a personal challenge that believers may aspire too.

Faith in Action Nov. 29 2010
By Renee - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are not many books outside of the Bible that I think are crucial to read and apply, this book about George Muller is one. He was a real sinner transformed by Jesus Christ and one who believed in the character of God and lived it out. If you want to study how to disciple people by living out a life of trusting the Lord, George's example ranks up there with people like Peter, Paul, and others in the scriptures. It is inspiring and I was convicted that my life should be lived trusting the Lord as much as George Mueller did.
