George Müller, a rebellious thief transformed into a humble servant of God, longed for his life to be a living manifestation of the strength and power of Christ. From a position of utter dependence upon God, Müller opens up his journals and offers us front row access to the inner workings of his own spiritual life as well as an intimate accounting of the miraculous provisions of God which enabled him to house, feed and care for thousands of orphans in 19th century England. Müller humbly beckons every single one of his readers to follow his lead toward a life of uncomplicated, dynamic faith in the King of kings and Lord of lords who is alive and waiting to overturn every paradigm of a watching world. Our modern world desperately needs to see the power and light of the risen Christ bursting forth from our lives. Who among us is willing to take up the baton of faith Müller extends to us here and offer up our lives as living sacrifices to the faithful God of love?

This is a new edition of George Müller (A Man of Faith and Prayer.) More than 20 illustrations have been added. Four dissertations by George Müller have been added also, and a linked table of contents, as well as the updating of archaic words. In this powerful heroic biography, Arthur T. Pierson explains the exploratory life journey of George Müller, the wonderful man of faith and prayer who spared nothing in his zeal for the gospel of Christ. George Müller (1805-1898), English preacher and philanthropist, was born near Halberstadt, Germany, on the 27th of September 1805, the son of an excise man (formerly, a government agent who collects excise tax on goods and prevents smuggling). He subsequently became a naturalized British subject. Educated in Germany, he resolved in 1826 to devote himself to missionary work, and in 1828 went to London to prepare for an appointment offered him by the Society for promoting Christianity among the Jews. In 1830, however, he gave up the idea of missionary work, and became minister of a small congregation at Teignmouth, Devonshire. He contended that the temporal as well as the spiritual needs of life could be supplied by prayer, and on this principle abolished pew rents and refused to take a fixed salary. After two years at Teignmouth, Müller removed to Bristol where he spent the rest of his life. He devoted himself particularly to the care of orphan children. He began by taking a few under his charge, but in the course of time their number increased to 2000. He settled in five large houses erected for the purpose at Ashley Down, near Bristol. The money required for the carrying on of this work was voluntarily contributed, mainly as a result of the wide circulation of Müller's narrative, The Lord's Dealings with George Müller. When he was over seventy he started on a preaching mission, which lasted nearly seventeen years and included Europe, America, India, Australia and China.

The narrative of the Lord's dealings with George M ller were a series of volumes that have blessed many. The present volume is a more manageable version edited by Rev. H. Lincoln Wayland. EDITOR'S PREFACE: Having been requested by Messrs. Gould and Lincoln to examine the work entitled "A Narrative of some of the Lord's Dealings with George M ller," the Editor was convinced that its republication in this country would greatly promote the piety of American Christians. But to reproduce the work in its original form was attended with difficulty. The "Narrative," in four parts, (published respectively in 1837, 1841, 1845, and 1856, ) and the four "Annual Reports" issued in 1857, 1858, 1859, and 1860, would occupy not less than eighteen hundred pages of the size of those contained in this volume. The cost of such a work would greatly limit its circulation and its usefulness, if indeed any publisher should undertake its issue. There seemed no alternative except to abandon the idea of an American edition altogether, or to present it to the public in a condensed form. Such a condensation seemed, on examination, to be entirely practicable. Owing to the "Parts" of the "Narrative" having been published at four separate periods, it often happens that the same matter is several times repeated. A large portion of the space is occupied with the acknowledgment of donations received. These entries, although appropriate in a report made to the donors and to the British public, have not the same interest for American readers. The discussion of some points in church polity, and the account of the Author's journeys upon the Continent, though interesting and instructive, are not necessary to the continuity of the history. Although in some cases the portions which have been omitted cover a considerable period of time, yet it is believed that all which is essential has been retained. No pains have been spared on the part of the Editor to preserve the value of the work while reducing its compass, and to give, in a form universally accessible, a clear exhibition of the wonderful results of the life of George M ller, as well as of the principles by which his life has been governed. Believing that the book would be rendered more attractive to the reader, and more convenient for reference, the Editor has divided it into Chapters, and has prefixed to each a brief statement of some of the leading subjects introduced in the Chapter. For these "contents," as well as for the headings of the Chapters, and for the general title of the volume, the Editor alone is responsible. The "Narrative" of George M ller has been blessed in other lands to the awakening of spiritual life. It was the means, as will be observed by the reader, of greatly forwarding, if not of originating, the work of grace now advancing in Ireland. "The Life of Trust" is submitted to the Christian public of America, in the hope that its still small voice may be heard even amid the clangor of political strife and the revulsion of commercial interests, and that it may be used by the Divine Spirit to promote and strengthen in the hearts of American Christians, Faith in the Living God.

In his seventh book in The Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper explores the lives of Charles Spurgeon, Hudson Taylor, and George Müller. Each of these men was known for extraordinary faith in God and untiring service to others. Each of them continues to motivate and inspire God’s people even today.

Even through intense adversity, the lives of each of these men display their shared confidence in the power of God and their love for his glory and goodness.

This Heroes of the Faith volume introduces the German expatriate, George Muller, who operated a ministry for orphaned children in Bristol, England in the 19th century based entirely on faith in God for financial support.
Mr. Brooks, in this compilation, has endeavored to select those incidents and practical remarks from Mr. M�ller's Narratives, that show in an unmistakeable way, both to believers and unbelievers, the secret of believing prayer, the manifest hand of a living God, and His unfailing response, in His own time and way, to every petition which is according to His will. The careful perusal of these extracts will thus further the great object which Mr. M�ller had in view, without the necessity of reading through the various details of his "Narratives," details which Mr. M�ller felt bound to give when writing periodically the account of God's dealings with him. For those who have the opportunity, an examination of the "Autobiography of George M�ller, or, a Million and a Half in Answer to Prayer" will richly repay the time spent upon it. Mr. M�ller's permission for the compilation of this volume is shown in the following words:"If the extracts are given exactly as printed, and the punctuation exactly as in the book and in the connection in which the facts stand, I have no objection." HOW TO ASCERTAIN THE WILL OF GOD I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the trouble with people generally is just here. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the Lord's will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.2.-Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If so, I make myself liable to great delusions.3.-I seek the Will of the Spirit of God through, or in connection with, the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also. If the Holy Ghost guides us at all, He will do it according to the Scriptures and never contrary to them.4.-Next I take into account providential circumstances. These often plainly indicate God's Will in connection with His Word and Spirit.5.-I ask God in prayer to reveal His Will to me aright.6.-Thus, through prayer to God, the study of the Word, and reflection, I come to a deliberate judgment according to the best of my ability and knowledge, and if my mind is thus at peace, and continues so after two or three more petitions, I proceed accordingly. In trivial matters, and in transactions involving most important issues, I have found this method always effective. GEORGE M�LLER. ANSWERS TO PRAYERGET MORE BOOKS AT REVIVALPRESS.NET
