    I read this in late 1995, and from the notes I made at the time, I found Pierson's style a bit too overwritten. But apart from that, Müller shines out of every page, and is an enormous comforter of those who follow Christ, in terms of the need for constant prayer and sanctification. He was an inspiration to people in his own day, and continues to be so. I've read other books on him, as well as his autobiography, and he stirs up my heart every time.

    An amazing story of a man whom God blessed with the gift of faith. This paragraph from page 321 nicely summarizes the purpose of the book as well as Mr. Müller's life: "If Mr. Müller had any great mission, it was not to found a worldwide institution of any sort, however useful scattering Bibles and books and tracts, or housing and feeding thousands of orphans, or setting up Christian schools and aiding missionary workers. His main mission was to teach men that it is safe to trust God's Word, to r An amazing story of a man whom God blessed with the gift of faith. This paragraph from page 321 nicely summarizes the purpose of the book as well as Mr. Müller's life: "If Mr. Müller had any great mission, it was not to found a worldwide institution of any sort, however useful scattering Bibles and books and tracts, or housing and feeding thousands of orphans, or setting up Christian schools and aiding missionary workers. His main mission was to teach men that it is safe to trust God's Word, to rest implicitly upon whatever he hath said, and obey explicitly whatever he has bidden; that prayer offered in faith, trusting his promise and the intercession of his dear Son, is never offered in vain; and that the life lived by faith is a walk with God, just outside the very gates of heaven." He set out to prove to men that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever and that He can be relied on today to answer prayer and provide for His work. Mr. Müller provided a living example of trust in God and God's continual provision. In his life we see countless examples of how God is indeed rarely early but never late in answering prayer. We see how in practical ways God made known what it was He wanted Mr. Müller to do. Read this book and see God at work. It will enlarge your view of God, change the way you pray, and change the way you make decisions in life.

    The story of George Muller of Bristol is truly an amazing account of what God can do through a humble and obedient man (or person for those who require politically correct pronouns). I am in awe in reading about God’s faithfulness and all of the people who were touched by the ministry of Muller. BUT, I really did not like the book itself. I expected to be reading a biography of this man of God, but other than the first few chapters, this book is something quite different!

I expected to be reading a biography of this man of God, but other than the first few chapters, this book is something quite different! It is a commentary on the autobiographical writings of Muller. As a result the actual narrative (which I wanted to read) is minimal, while there is an excessive amount of semi-ambiguous religious language that is used either to preach to the reader, or praise Muller. Thus, while I strongly recommend reading a biography of Muller, I don’t recommend this one, and would be delighted if someone would point me to a better one.

    George Mueller was a man of unparalleled faith. His life reflected a steadfastness of soul and an unrelenting trust in all that God is and promises to be. This book is highly contemplative and should be slowly savored. An excellent reference for anyone seeking to fully trust in the Lord regardless the circumstances that may threaten to shipwreck your soul.

    This book is easy to read and gives a nice overview of Muller's life, but I found it a tad too simplistic and preachy. It would be a great book for someone in middle school learning about great Christians in history.

    This was a very interesting book that shows the power of prayer. Every Christian should read this book to see what prayer can do.
