George Müller (1805-1898) is well-known among Christians. His name often functions as a synonym for faith and the power of prayer. For those unfamiliar with his life: Müller opened and operated orphanages, deciding to trust in God entirely for the provision of the money needed to do so. He did this specifically for the purpose of showing men that God was still faithful. The result was that God again showed Himself faithful, answering prayers in ways that seem more like legend than real life—except for the fact that they actually happened.
This collection of writings from Müller is meant to give you a better introduction to the man, his beliefs, and the mighty ways God helped him to help others. It begins with writings that, overall, describe his early life and conversion to Christ from a highly prodigal life. The next section presents writings that describe his “convictions and teachings,” covering the topics of faith, use of material goods, studying Scripture, and discerning the will of God. The next two sections are their own short articles, “Müller’s Encouragement to Those with Unconverted Family and Friends” and “An Address to Young Converts.” After that there are some portions from his journal. The booklet closes with two more articles, one on “Reasons for Desiring to Establish an Orphan House” and an “Exhortation to Perseverance in Prayer.”
Certainly those looking to undertake a “faith mission” similar to Müller’s will find reason to read his reflections on such matters. More generally, if you’ve been wondering what exactly it means to live by faith and to cast all your cares on God, Müller’s life is an exposition of both.
