Book Summary of George Müller of Bristol by A.T. Pierson


George Müller was many things. He was a husband, father, pastor, and missionary, and he oversaw five orphanage houses in Bristol, England. Chiefly among all, however, George Müller was a man who loved and was confident in God. 

He delighted to live by faith and to show others the faithfulness of the triune God. “To rest solely on the promise of a faithful God is the only way to know for one’s self and prove to others, His faithfulness.” (p. 148) 

Therefore, Müller, resolved to live a life where he asked for no stated salary nor solicited a single shilling for his missionary endeavors or for the orphanages. Yet, decade after decade, year after year, and day after day, the Lord provided this man with exactly what he needed. He took prayer seriously and really believed, and he proved by his own life that God hears and answers the prayers of His children for His glory and their good. 

“Three qualities or characteristics stand out very conspicuous of him: truth, faith, and love.” (p. 360)

Thus, Müller’s life not only is a testimony to the faithfulness of God, but also one of whom the world was not worthy, and in many ways, one in which Christians of all ages ought to imitate.

Overview:

George Müller was many things. He was a husband, father, pastor, and missionary, and he oversaw five orphanage houses in Bristol, England. Chiefly among all, however, George Müller was a man who loved and was confident in God. 

He delighted to live by faith and to show others the faithfulness of the triune God. “To rest solely on the promise of a faithful God is the only way to know for one’s self and prove to others, His faithfulness.” (p. 148) 

Therefore, Müller, resolved to live a life where he asked for no stated salary nor solicited a single shilling for his missionary endeavors or for the orphanages. Yet, decade after decade, year after year, and day after day, the Lord provided this man with exactly what he needed. He took prayer seriously and really believed, and he proved by his own life that God hears and answers the prayers of His children for His glory and their good. 

“Three qualities or characteristics stand out very conspicuous of him: truth, faith, and love.” (p. 360)

Thus, Müller’s life not only is a testimony to the faithfulness of God, but also one of whom the world was not worthy, and in many ways, one in which Christians of all ages ought to imitate.
