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.

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.

It was a really good presentation. It was cool to see more proof I can use to tell my friends about creation. It helped me learn a lot.

This is what I've been looking for!
-LB Event Participant Chaska, MN
This really amazed me and brought me closer to God. You gave me even greater understanding of the wonders of Creation.
-MM Event Participant Maple Grove, MN
I have appreciated your teaching. (I have already begun using it to answer the questions of my daugher.) Thank you! Your teaching is well-organized and clear, and full of insights I needed to be reminded of. I was challenged to share my faith with boldness, equipped to defend my beliefs. Again, thank you!

I so needed this because my heart has been so burdened for many in my family and friends who do not believe, who are following the world religions.

Surprised by Faith book
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.

Loved hearing about the external evidence of science and literature for helping to explain to others! This is non-threatening and just good information for people who are unsure of the truth of the Scripture.
-SS Event Participant Tucson, AZ
As a relatively new Christian, creation has been a challenge to me. I believed evolution and the fossil record was more or less air tight. Your course really opened my eyes to the hoax it is. The result: My faith in the Bible has increased immeasurably.
