This revision of the classic biography George Müller of Bristol tells of a life characterized by prayer, faith, and self-denial in the cause of Christ. George Müller (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. Müller made great evangelistic tours. He traveled 200,000 miles, going around the world and preaching in many lands and in several different languages.
George Müller of Bristol was written the year after Müller’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.

Arthur Tappan Pierson (1837–1911), was an American Presbyterian pastor with a wide and varied transatlantic ministry that made him famous in Scotland and England. This pioneer of fundamentalism preached over 13,000 sermons in his lifetime, delivered Bible lectures in venues like Moody Bible Institute, and penned over fifty books. He served as a consulting editor for the original Scofield Reference Bible (1909) for his friend, C. I. Scofield and counted as friends such men as D. L. Moody, George Müller, Adoniram Judson Gordon, and C. H. Spurgeon (whom he succeeded in the pulpit of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London).
