The Guardian of Bristol's Orphans
'God has given me a mission field right here, and I will live and die in it.' George Muller stared at the beggar girl. She was no older than five and was piggybacking her little brother. Her mother had died in the cholera epidemic sweeping England. Her father had never returned from the mines. Standing in the muddy streets, this little girl gave a face to Bristol's countless orphans.
With scarcely enough for his own family, he opened his heart and home for ultimately ten thousand children.

George Müller could easily be idolised because of his many good deeds, however thankfully the text kept pointing back to God and how George was ultimately dependant on God, revealing God’s hand at work in everything that ‘George’ accomplished.
I would recommend this book to families who need some encouragement in their faith or who simply want to learn about a very interesting life. Having said that, my youngest (aged 7) found the first few chapters a bit hard to take, when youthful George was on the wrong track. My son was much happier to listen to the story once George Müller started heading in the right direction. Even so, it wasn’t as enjoyable to him as it was for my older children (ages 9, 11 and 12) who could understand it better.

They are inspiring stories of ordinary people doing extra ordinary things because of their faith. The authors show them as real people, warts and all.
George Muller is an excellent read. It is one of several which I have also bought as a present for both older children and adults.
