If you only read one book this year, George' Muller's autobiography (or biography by George Steer) should be the one.

The book is great. Well worth a read - inspirational and uplifting. Possibly even life-changing.
George Muller set out to do two things in his life. One was to care for orphans - which he did for thousands and thousands of them, and in a very complete way as well. The second was to prove that God hears and answers prayers. He did this by never revealing any needs to the public, however urgent and important, but telling God alone... and writing them in his journal. Then recording the answer to those prayers later. Some of them took 50 years, but all were answered in the end: over 70,000 examples of answered prayers. Don't worry, not all are recorded in this book... but this book does give an exciting overview of some of the most spectacular and miraculous.
If you ever doubt whether there is a God, whether he listens and cares, and whether he answers prayers, and whether he still does miracles today, then this book will really wipe those doubts away. It doesn't say so in this book, but George inspired others to live likewise too, some to this day.
