Reviews - What do customers think about George Muller: The Guardian Of Bristols Orphans?
touching story Jun 28, 2008
This is an older children's book, but it is also a good book for adults. There were many points where it brought me to tears because it is such an emotion filled story. It is definitely suitable for children, although some of the others in the series are not. I reccomend that adults read the books first and then let their children read them. That is actually how I got hooked on this series. The books were so good, I couldn't put them down.
A wonderful story Jun 27, 2008
Here is a person who took care of orphans without ever asking for a penny.
An inspiring testimony of faith and charity May 12, 2008
George Muller's life was one of selfless giving and charity, and his biographical account is moving and inspiring. Hearing about Mueller's untiring efforts to reach out and give hope to the orphans of Bristol, and how the majority of his life was lived both in faith, constant prayer, and a relentless dedication to give to others, is just so inspiring. Here is Christian charity at its finest. George Muller's testimony is one to be admired.
God is good! Nov 12, 2007

wow Jun 15, 2007
my mother passed this book along to me after she read it to my younger siblings. it is written at a "young adult" level, which was great, because the story was so gripping, I was glad to be able to read it through in a few hours. sometimes God writes the best story possible in the events of history through the lives of His people, and no amount of "literary prowess" is necessary which would get in the way of those pure and unadulterated facts.
This story has inspired me to: pray specifically and trust completely; give away every extra dollar that I have; get rid of at least half my books; stop reading books about the Bible, and read no other book than the Bible until I've read it completely through, or until another book seems as appealing, embracing the possibility that I may never read another book in my life; live a life of complete devotion to Jesus Christ.
