LarryG uploaded files on July 12, 2012 for someone to create a .topx module with the following recommendation:
“I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. Thirty years ago I read this book and it totally changed my life! In the eyes of the world, George Muller wasn't anyone special. Yet in God's eyes...This book was a delight to read - a real faith builder!”


This module contains all Appendices, including Dr. Sawtell’s letters which, unfortunately are lacking in many editions both digital and print of “The Life of Trust”. The absence of Dr. Sawtell’s letters is sad indeed because it deprives the reader of learning about Mr. Müller’s daily prayer and study habits as he ministered on behalf of the Lord.

FYI, Also uploaded is Arthur T. Pierson’s Pierson’s    “George Muller of Bristol, His Life of Prayer and Faith (ILLUSTRATED)”   which includes photos of the Bethesda Chapel’s interior and exterior, The Orphan Houses, Mr. Muller’s House, Prayer Room of Orphan House No. 3,  etc.
