George Muller's life is a powerful answer to modern scepticism. His name has become a by-word for faith throughout the world. In the early 1830s he embarked upon an extraordinary adventure. Disturbed by the faithlessness of the Church in general, he longed to have something to point to as 'visible proof that our God and Father is the same faithful creator as he ever was.'

This first volume of two brings the story of George Whitefield, and of the evangelical revival, up to the end of the year 1740. In it we are told in vivid detail how a young man of Gloucester – “at 16 a tapster, at 26 the most brilliant and popular preacher the modern world has ever known” – exercised a ministry of the gospel crammed full of arduous labour and crowned with divine blessing.
The period 1741-1770, covered by this second and concluding volume on George Whitefield, was not one of cloudless sunshine. It opened with the doctrinal conflict with the two Wesleys and with a serious division in Methodist ranks. But this was quickly followed by a visit to Scotland in which revival reached its high watermark. Then came years of unwavering effort to evangelise the people of the...

In this book, Jerry illustrates through his story – and then summarises for the reader – seven...

After twelve years of missionary work in the northeast province of what was the Belgian Congo, building up a simple medical service, civil war erupted with horrific effects. During the war Helen was brutally beaten and raped and left with no choice but to return to Britain (this story is told in Give me this Mountain). She quickly returned to the Congo in 1966 to assist in the rebuilding of the...
"In Nepal, whenever the water ran out, or the electricity cuts were worse than normal, or the monsoon seemed interminably long, or the motorbike stopped, or the Maoists forced another strike, or my homeschool patience ran out, I would think about Australia. I would think about our real home with hot water and electricity and cheese and lettuce and chocolate and olives and friends... where I...

In 1940, when Adolf Hitler’s troops invaded the peaceful Channel Island of Guernsey, the 8 year-old John Blanchard was one of thousands of school children who were hastily evacuated from the island and cut off from their homes and families for the next five years. He became a Christian on his return to the island in his teens. His desire would be that others, also, be told of this same Jesus –...
