Arthur T. Pierson’s biography of George Müller was one of the first to appear after Müller’s death. Pierson wrote it in order to update Müller’s own 4-volume autobiography. Where Müller’s autobiography is written in chronological order, Pierson’s biography is arranged topically, examining the broad themes and spiritual principles of Müller’s life. This illustrated volume also contains an introduction by Müller’s son-in-law, James Wright.

“It was so with George Müller. He found in the word of God one great fact: the love of God in Christ. Upon that fact faith, not feeling, laid hold; and then the feeling came naturally without being waited for or sought after. The love of God in Christ constrained him to a love—infinitely unworthy, indeed, of that to which it responded, yet supplying a new impulse unknown before.” (Page 35)
“A human life, filled with the presence and power of God, is one of God’s choicest gifts to His church and to the world” (Page 15)
“Here is the great secret of success. Work with all your might; but trust not in the least in your work. Pray with all your might for the blessing of God; but work, at the same time, with all diligence, with all patience, with all perseverance. Pray then, and work. Work and pray. And still again pray, and then work. And so on all the days of your life. The result will surely be, abundant blessing.” (Page 458)
