Don Bierle’s book Surprised by Faith has proven itself to be a great tool at enlightening and reinforcing Christian beliefs. To know what a person believes is a good first step in the journey of Christian faith. To know why a person believes what he or she believes is the all-important next step which solidifies a person’s faith. In his book Surprised by Faith, Don Bierle gives historical, archaeological, and scientific facts that aid the inquiring mind in discerning “why” to believe “what” they believe. I heartily recommend his book.
