Here is a sampling from some of the thousands of comments we have received about our events, videos, and books.
The "Discovery" presentation [gives] information which totally confronts a skeptics view of what the Bible is and why they disbelieve it. This information is rarely presented in the church today and should be understood by every believer so that they may give an answer to the hope that lies within them.

Surprised by Faith book
Far from being a "leap in the dark," faith is the reasonable and rational response to an honest examination of facts, postulates Dr. Don Bierle in his simultaneously scholarly and easy to read book Surprised by Faith. In six concise chapters he lays out the evidence for biblical Christianity in a straight forward and logical manner, then invites the reader to respond in belief.
-Bruce Montgomery, D. Min. Pastor, Grace Church Desert Hot Springs, CA
Thank you for capturing the minds of the teens in training. I appreciated the intellectual honesty in how the scientific method works and how our bias can lead to different conclusions.

At a moment in my life where I am questioning, "Where are you God? Are you there?" you brought me hope. Thank you.

Surprised by Faith book
Surpised by Faith is a great evangelistic tool when placed in the hands of people. It can bring them from the darkness of unbelief to saving faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord
-Reverend Allen L. Mondon Calvary Free Lutheran Church Mesa, AZ
For several decades, Dr. Don Bierle has proven to be a tremendous resource and partner in ministry, significantly in enhancing the spread of the Gospel in our Twin Cities and beyond. His ministry, FaithSearch and, book, Surprised by Faith, have been key sources of spiritual transformation within the lives of, literally, hundreds of men and women all over the Twin Cities and beyond. Thank you, Don, for your faithfulness to our Lord over all these years, and for your effectiveness in making Him known!
-Jeff Siemon Director of Search Ministries MN and fomer MN Viking Edina, MN
I was always struggling with so many long and difficult names and locations mentioned in the Bible. Now I know why they are absolutely essential for the validity of the text. I will read them very carefully from now on. Thank you for giving me many answers to the questions I constantly hear from my relatives and friends!
-A Former Muslim Event Participant Plano, TX
Don Bierle knows how to touch the heads and the hearts of those who listen to him. [He] brought together young and old, skeptic and supporter to hear his personal testimony, scientific evidence, and biblical truth. He is especially understanding of opinions that differ from his teaching, and he engages people in conversation for greater understanding.
– Dee Rock Minister of parish life American Evangelical Lutheran Church, LCMC (Prescott, AZ)
As a professor of Philosophy, and as one who is reasonably familiar with your arguments, allow me to say that yours was the best presentation for the layman, of the evidence for faith that I have ever heard. Praise the Lord!
--GC Participant Edmonton, AB, Canada
This is a wonderful collection of information everyone should hear! I was ripped to shreds as a freshman in college—some science majors teamed up to tear down Christianity. I didn't have anything tangible to throw back. I have spend many years rebuilding—"discovering." I'd love to meet up with them again.
