George Mueller's life is a powerful answer to modern scepticism. His name has become a by-word for faith throughout the world. In the early 1830's he embarked upon an extraordinary adventure. Disturbed by the faithlessness of the Church in general, he longed to have something to point to as 'visible proof that our God and Father is the same faithful creator as he ever was'.
Praying in every penny of the costs, he supervised the building of three large orphanages housing thousands of children. Under no circumstances would any individual ever be asked for money or materials. He was more successful than anyone could have believed possible and is as much an example to our generation, as he was to his.

AllanAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5What a testimony!September 28, 2011AllanAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking for a great example of how we are called to live as followers of Christ, you will find this book a huge encouragement - at least I did. I've read many a Christian book, and I would say that this one along with Francis Chan's "Crazy Love" have been the most impactful and motivating books I have read. No book has single-handedly shaped my view of money to a more Godly view than this one. George Mueller leaves us a great of example of what God can do through an individual who walks by faith. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking to live life by faith and not settle for the things of this world. I could not put it down. God Bless!
Cheryl FloodIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Reads like a boring textbookJuly 28, 2011Cheryl FloodIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: femaleI would have rated this book 1.5 stars if I could have, but certainly not because of George Mueller's incredible, exciting, and amazing life. That would rate 5+++ stars! Rather, this rating is for Roger Steer's book, which takes this man's unbelievable life story and makes a dry, boring textbook of it, devoid of any emotion or joy. If you're writing a term paper for a professor who is a stickler for facts, especially lots and lots of date facts, this book will help you out with that. If, however, you're looking for a biography that reads like a good story, keep on looking. This one put me to sleep many a night.
