The History Maker series brings you classic biographies of important people and movements in church history – together with more recent biographical works of the same. They have gained a reputation as an important new resource for the church and now cover nineteen characters from church history. The titles feature well-known figures like Martin Luther and George Muller, as well as lesser-known figures such as Mary Slessor and Andrew Murray. Today we are featuring on one the most popular in our series, George Müller by Roger Steer:
About George Müller: Delighted in God
George Müller’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’.
Praying for every penny of the costs, he supervised the building of five large orphanages, housing thousands of children. Under no circumstances would any individual ever be asked for money or materials. He was more successful than anyone could have believed possible and is as much an example to our generation as he was to his.

John Owen is amongst the best known of the Puritans (1616-1683). He was a profound and thought provoking pastor-theologian. Death of Death in the Death of Christ is the latest in the John Owen Collection from our Christian Heritage Imprint and has a number of features to assist the reader in getting to grips with John Owen’s writings:
- The text has been divided into chapters.
- Subheadings inserted. The contents pages include primary and secondary subheadings to aid navigation.
- The style and placement of biblical references has been made consistent with modern practice.
Death of Death in the Death of Christ was John Owen’s first masterpiece. Written from seven years of studying and reflection by one of the greatest minds in theological history, its exploration into the Scriptural perspective on the doctrine of universal redemption is yet to be answered or paralleled.
From the foreword by Sinclair B. Ferguson:
The Death of Death in the Death of Christ ranks among the best known, and indeed may actually be the best known, of the dozens of books that flowed from the pen of John Owen during his four decade long career as an author. Whenever there is a renewed interest in what lies at the heart of the gospel, these pages have a tendency to be rediscovered and re-read. It seems that each generation needs to discover them anew. Weigh carefully what you read; compare it with Scripture. Allow Owen to challenge your thinking. For this is a book to make you think.
