This was a good, inspiring read - I thoroughly recommend it to the person who is interested in finding out about a man who made history and changed the face of Bristol's and England's social fabric through a dogged pursuit of belief in a God who answers prayer tangibly.
It had a more contemporary feel than other biographies I have read of George Muller,probably because it brings the reader right through to the 21st century and the work today which continues the legacy of Muller. It has a compelling draw, as the tests which Muller goes through, to see if God is faithful to the promises given in the bible, are meticulously explained and set in historical context, e.g the investigation by Charles Dickens into the orphanages to see if the healthy and happy conditions of the orphans, despite no tangible means of support, were as true the reports said they were.
The book is a faith-builder to anyone doubting the existence of God. The last 1/4 of the book did become a little repetitive as it recorded Muller's many journeys abroad, who he saw and what he did, and could have been summarised more succinctly. But that does not detract from the overall thrill of seeing the impossible become the possible through its pages. Even better when one actually lives in Bristol and sees the evidence still in existence,in people and places.
