    George Mueller was an amazing man

    This is part of a series of biographies about men and women of evangelical faith published by Moody Press. I have read other biographies about Mueller from different publishers. Born in Germany and intending to become a Lutheran minister, he lived a rather wild, misspent youth, much to the consternation of his father, who seemed to be more concerned about his not getting a good job than about his spiritual waywardness.
    This book talks a little about this and his subsequent change of heart, but it centers mostly upon his work after moving as a "missionary" to England in which he founded Ashley Downs, a home for orphans in Bristol, in fact, one of the first truly "humane" institutions for the care of orphans in history. Mueller resolved never to ask anyone for money but simply to pray that God would provide his needs and then trust that others would help as moved by the Lord. While one might not agree with every religious concept espoused by Mueller and mentioned in the book, we can still appreciate his faith in God's providence.
    One thing that struck me about this book is that Mueller's first wife, Mary, is pictured as somewhat of a whining shrew who did not always share the same confidence in God's care as her husband. Perhaps that is true, but I do not recall seeing this kind of portrayal of her in any of the other books about Mueller that I have read. Still, this is an interesting book, and it is good for young people to read about men and women who accomplished good things in this world because they were moved by their belief in God, whether we necessarily concur with all of their theological beliefs or not.

    George Mueller: An Inspiring Book About A Man of Faith

    Faith Coxe Bailey's biography of George Mueller is the best I have read. (I've read 1 other biography about him as well as Mueller's autobiography) The story is intriguing, and written in a wonderful style that holds your attention and leaves you wanting more when it is finished. Since childhood I have read this book many times and it never ceases to give me inspiration and a new desire to trust God deeper. Although written for a younger audience, I still highly enjoy this simple story of a simple man of faith---even though I'm in my mid-twenties. Mueller did a wonderful and commendable Work among the orphaned children of 1800's London. I highly recommend this book. It is interesting and delightful.

    An Incredible Man

    When I read this book for a report in my English 1 class, I was astounded at the way Mueller completely trusted in God for all the needs of the orphans he took under his wing. I had no idea how great and trusting a man he was. Now that I have read this book, I realize that all you really need to do is trust in God for all your needs and if your faith is real, he'll give you everything you need. This was a wonderfully written book. The way Bailey writes a biography like a fiction book is refreshing and makes it a good read.
