Item description for George Mueller: A Father To The Fatherless by Rebecca Davis...
Overview "These dear little ones know nothing about our great needs," wrote George Mueller in his journal. "They do not know if we have much money in the bank or nothing at all. They always have good nourishing food and the clothes that they need." For about seven years the little children ate their meals one prayer at a time. Never, never, did any of the orphan children go without a meal. Now for young readers. A biography about one of the most remarkable men of faith and prayer know outside of the Bible. But Mr. Mueller would want neither praise nor attention. He would want all the glory to be given to God.

A young reader's introduction to this man of faith Apr 3, 2007
This biography is designed for 7 to 9 year olds, but younger children would enjoy hearing it read aloud. Each chapter can be read aloud or by a newer reader in less than fifteen minutes.
The book begins with the well-known incident of George Mueller's father catching him with stolen tax money in his shoes, and goes on to tell of his years of thieving and living life for himself. We read of how he met the Lord at a Bible study while at school. What is really ironic is that he was studying for the Lutheran ministry, and others in his classes were just as unregenerate as he was. Next the book tells of his marriage, and his conviction that God would provide their needs, even though they committed to receiving no salary, and to tell their needs only to God. Further chapters show George's burden for the orphans, and the development of the orphan homes. It is exciting to read of how George believed God would answer his prayers, and then to see Him do it, time after time. As the book progresses, we read of different children who came into the orphanages, their experiences there and how they changed their lives, how they knew George Mueller, and what happened when they left the homes. When his first wife died, George wrote in his journal that he missed her, but he was content in the Lord's will. His second, younger wife went around the world with him as he spoke in different countries.
Rebecca Davis has written a great book as a biography. Younger children will enjoy reading it on their own, and it would also make for great discussions if read aloud in a family setting. I whole-heartedly recommend it!
