We have enjoyed several books from YWAM Publishing and were excited to have an opportunity to use and review Christian Heroes Then and Now: George Muller: The Guardian of Bristol's Orphans book and the Christian Heroes Then and Now George Muller Unit Study Curriculum Guide .
George Muller The Guardian of Bristol's Orphans book is a 208 page paperback and is part of YWAM Publishing's Christian Heroes: Then and Now series. This series has true stories of ordinary men and women who trusted God and accomplished extraordinary things for His kingdom. The Guardian of Bristol's Orphans tell about the life of George Muller. George Muller was a thief and a liar who only cared about furthering his own interests until he found himself at a Bible meeting and found himself asking God to forgive him of his sins and he became a Christian. He thought he was meant for the mission field, but after seeing a 5 year old orphan girl caring for her brother in the streets of Bristol he decided that he was already in his mission field. "God has given me a mission field and I will live and die in it." With barely enough food for his own family, George opened his heart and his home starting with a "Breakfast Club" of 30 orphans, growing to multiple orphan homes that over 10,000 orphans would live in. Through it all, George trusted God for all of their needs.
