4.0 out of 5 stars Delighted In God 20 May 2008
Format:Paperback
Many people have heard of George Muller and know of some of his exploits, but his story is one I've wanted to read for myself for some time. So I purchased a copy of George Muller: Delighted In God by Roger Steer. I found it a tale of incredible faith, with a man not unafraid to trust in God in remarkable ways. As a result, he did great exploits and his influence remains even today.

Muller was born in 1805 in Prussia. His youth was certainly misspent, but he became a Christian at the age of 20 and his life changed considerably - he even pondered becoming a missionary. Circumstances led him to London, then Devon where he got married. In 1832, he moved to Bristol to pastor a church. It was here he would spend most of his life.

Muller had a heart for orphans, especially those who had no living relatives and were destined for a life in Victorian workhouses. Starting with housing children in his own family home, the work grew over the years and more houses were needed. As these houses become full, custom made buildings were required as well. By 1870, more than 2,000 children were being accommodated in five homes.

The fascinating thing about this great work was how Muller funded it all. Muller simply prayed for any and all funding he required. One of his maxim's was that he would never tell any human what he needed, but would only tell God in prayer. On an almost daily basis, provision came to the orphanage work in the form of financial gifts and food that was needed for the children. Muller kept a diary that he recorded all prayer requests, answers and monetary gifts which gives us a first hand account of his incredible faith, and the amazing provision he experienced year after year. Some of the stories in the book are quite simply astounding.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time favourite 3 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Basically this book uses Muller's diary to give account of his life which was deeply embedded and furnished with prayers. (He lived in the times of Dickens for example.) The special point is that many were recorded and their answers in their THOUSANDS. He once saw a man who loved God get on his knees to pray to the Lord. This struck him deeply and led to his own precious encounter with the Lord and an extraordinary ministry. It says at the back 50,000 recorded answered prayers 30,000 of which were within 24 hours. He wanted to show that the God of the Bible is the same today. There is such an integrity about these accounts. Oddly the times of struggle and ill health are as much an inspiration to me as the later part of the book. You will find it a real treasure....

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Roger Steer's book on George Muller 1 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Man of faith 24 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an inspirational read, as you follow one man's journey of faith. I think few people today would dare to do what he did, and yet he was such a blessing to so many, and used by God so much in the lives of the children of Bristol in the 19th century as well as around the world through his preaching ministry. It has made me re-evaluate my own faith.
