Here is a sampling from some of the thousands of comments we have received about our events, videos, and books.
I've heard many times from people that all religion is simply what you've been taught; and [that] you can't really know if what you've been taught is any more valid than what anyone else has been taught. You have clearly presented evidence (historical) which supports the Scriptural truth.

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.

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)
Thank you again for the powerful teaching you gave our church on Sunday morning. Your knowledge and insight into the Word of God and the natural world are encouraging and inspiring. We appreciate the relationship we have developed over the years and look forward to it continuing.
-LG Pastor, Event Host Phoenix, AZ
You answered many questions I've had over the last few years. Your examples regarding intelligent design were great!
-BVV Event Participant St. Michael, MN
I don't want to be a person who does not know why I believe what I believe. I was raised in a Chrisian home but have more doubts after graduating from a Christian College. For many years, I have believed in Jesus because that's what people told me to do. I appreciate this seminar as it has helped me in the process of reforming a stronger, more firmly built faith in Jesus.

Surprised by Faith book
Dr. Don Bierle know much more that he teaches. His heart is to communicate that which is vitally important to his listeners: Christian faith is reasonable and rational, though not rationalistic. Surprised by Faith teaches the scriptural truth that God became man in the incarnation, in doing so the infinite, personal God came into the finite world to live, die, and rise again on our behalf. In Surprised, Dr. Bierle condenses a lifetime of influence from some of the modern Christianity's apologetics giants (Lewis, Schaeffer, Chesterton) into accessible form for the Christian seeking a better understanding of his or her own faith, or for the seeker wanting to understand the object of their considerations. Surprised by Faith is an indispensable primer to evidential apologetics.

[This presentation has] given me greater ability to share the historical facts backing up the accuracy of Scripture and divinity of Jesus.
