This revision of the classic biography George Muller of Bristol tells of a life characterized by prayer, faith, and self-denial in the cause of Christ. George Muller (1805-1898) was well known for his constant faith in God and for providing an education to the children under his care. During his lifetime, he established 117 schools that educated more than 120,000 young persons, including orphans. From the age of seventy until ninety, Mr. Muller made great evangelistic tours. He traveled 200,000 miles, going around the world and preaching in many lands and in several different languages.
George Muller of Bristol was written the year after Muller's death by his close friend, American preacher and evangelist Arthur T. Pierson (1837-1911). Pierson served prominent pulpits both in America and Great Britain, preaching for two years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle following C. H. Spurgeon's death. He lectured at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois, and at Pierson Bible Institute in Seoul, Korea.
