Meet the Author

George Muller (1805And#151;1898) was born in Kroppenstaedt, Prussia. He was the son of a tax collector, and, before he became a Christian, he had the reputation of a liar and a thief. After accepting Christ as his personal Savior, he was used in remarkable ways to provide for over 10,000 orphans during his lifetime. He never went into debt or asked anyone to supply his needs. He trusted in God to provide for him and for the orphans, and God never failed to do so. In 1834, he established the Scriptural Knowledge Institution for Home and Abroad. Its objectives were to assist day schools and adult schools, where instruction was given based on scriptural principles; enable poor children to attend these day schools; circulate the Holy Scriptures; and aid in supplying the needs of missionaries and missionary schools. The fifth objective, which was added later, was to provide for the needs of orphaned children. By the 1870s, God enabled George Muller to build five large orphanages on Ashley Down in Bristol, England, and to send #10,000 annually to nearly two hundred missionaries. In 1875, he began preaching tours that took him over 200,000 miles to 42 countries to preach to 3 million people. God transformed a little boy who stole from his earthly father into a man who could be trusted with the resources of his heavenly Father.The ministry of George Muller continues today through the establishment of the George Muller Foundation. Three charities operate under the direction of the Foundation: The Muller Homes for Children, the Muller Homes for the Elderly, and the Scriptural Knowledge Institution.

    Phenominal!

    I'm not one to read books. I haven't read a book in over 4 years. I received this book for Christmas and have not been able to put it down since. It's marvelous and a wonderful testimony of God's power.

    Awesome! Very inspirational.

    I've read Mueller's biography 3 times already. It's wonderful to share this book with others, especially those who are new in the Christian faith. It's a real witness to the power of prayer.
