Mr. Brooks, in this compilation, has endeavored to select those incidents and practical remarks from Mr. Müller’s Narratives, that show in an unmistakeable way, both to believers and unbelievers, the secret of believing prayer, the manifest hand of a living God, and His unfailing response, in His own time and way, to every petition which is according to His will.
The careful perusal of these extracts will thus further the great object which Mr. Müller had in view, without the necessity of reading through the various details of his “Narratives,” details which Mr. Müller felt bound to give when writing periodically the account of God’s dealings with him.
For those who have the opportunity, an examination of the “Autobiography of George Müller, or, a Million and a Half in Answer to Prayer” will richly repay the time spent upon it.
Mr. Müller’s permission for the compilation of this volume is shown in the accompanying facsimile, (see p. 2), in the following words:
“If the extracts are given exactly as printed, and the punctuation exactly as in the book and in the connection in which the facts stand, I have no objection.”
