For many years I have been fascinated by the life and testimony of George Muller, one of God’s great heroes of faith who put his faith into action in extraordinary ways and famously proved God’s faithfulness in providing for hundreds of orphans in Bristol.

Well-illustrated and beautifully presented, this recent publication about George Muller is lively and well written, providing not only an excellent insight to George Muller the man and his prayer life but also helpful insights into the society in which he lived and the historical context in which he proved God so faithful.

His personal story is well told, from his misspent youth right through to his fruitful 80s travelling internationally as a successful evangelist. Photographs scattered throughout the book add interesting colour, as do regular instructive paragraphs about Muller’s remarkable prayer life.

I wholeheartedly recommend the book both for long-standing fans of George Muller and also those who need to be introduced to this great hero of the faith. A good book to give as a Christmas present.
