Publisher's Description

George Muller's life may be described as a primer on the miracle of answered prayer.

When Muller felt called by God to care for orphans, he had only a few cents in his pocket. Without ever asking anyone other than God, he received over $7,200,000 dollars (in 1800's money) through prayer alone. Muller established Orphanages in Bristol, England, and founded the Scriptural Knowledge Institution for Home and Abroad, the object of which was to aid Christian day-schools, to assist missionaries, and to circulate the Scriptures. His life was characterized by prayer, faith, and self-denial in the cause of Christ. During his lifetime, he established 117 schools which educated more than 120,000 young persons, including orphans.

From the age of seventy until ninety, Mr. Muller began to make great evangelistic tours. He traveled 200,000 miles, going around the world and preaching in many lands and in several different languages.

This classic biography of George Muller tells of his dependence on prayer and his compassionate concern for orphans in Bristol, England. George Muller (1805-1898) was well-known for his constant faith in God and for providing an education to the children under his care, to the point where he was accused of raising the poor above their natural station in life. Muller left a charitable legacy that continues to this day.

George Muller of Bristol was written the year after Muller's death by his close friend, Arthur T. Pierson, an American preacher and evangelist.

Author Bio

Arthur Tappan Pierson (1837–1911), was an American Presbyterian pastor with a wide and varied transatlantic ministry that made him famous in Scotland and England. This pioneer of fundamentalism preached over 13,000 sermons in his lifetime, delivered Bible lectures in venues like Moody Bible Institute, and penned over fifty books. He served as a consulting editor for the original Scofield Reference Bible (1909) for his friend, C. I. Scofield and counted as friends such men as D. L. Moody, George Müller, Adoniram Judson Gordon, and C. H. Spurgeon (whom he succeeded in the pulpit of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London).

    This review was written for George Muller of Bristol (1805-1898).
    This is a tribute to the glory of God and a great true story of a man who believed the Word, he was intimately tied to Jesus and taught others the same. Good discipleship training and everyone interested in raising funds should read this first. This edifies the Lord in every way and is an incredible journey to see for yourself.

    Life changing, George Muller opens to the reader some of his deepest thoughts and even weaknesses, which I didn't expect.A real encouragement to those of us who can put 'them on a pedestal'

    This review was written for George Muller of Bristol.
    Because this book was written in 1899 I at first found it a little hard to follow and sometimes understand. (Words had slightly different meanings then, etc)I then purchased "George Muller- Delighted by God" by Roger Steer. Although a shorter book, it covered Muller's life well and was easy to follow.Now knowing well Muller's story, I was then able to start A.T. Pierson's "George Muller of Bristol" again and found it easier to follow. In fact it added other details that Steer's book did not.I highly recommend that every Christian be familiar with George Muller's life story as it will inspire you to trust deeper in our God who is faithful!

    This review was written for George Muller of Bristol.
    Not just a biography but a lesson in God's equipping. Written in 1899, it is amazing how similar the state of the churches and the clergy were to today. Great wisdom and insight from a man who knew and trusted God.
