Here is a sampling from some of the thousands of comments we have received about our events, videos, and books.
I came to this a believer, but this session helped to strengthen my faith and helped me to talk about Jesus with more confidence with facts.
--BF Participant Victoria, MN
This has given me reassurance in the object [of my faith]. The facts and proof solidify that my faith has been placed in the valid object, Lord Jesus Christ.
-Anon. Event Participant
I appreciated the historical references to the validity of the Scripture. I am a chemist and always appreciate hearing the testamony of other scientists. I found the more deeply I got into my science studies, the more implausible the secular arguments of evolution and absence of God became. Ultimately, I too had to surrender my pride and arrogance and humbly accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
--WB Participant St. Michael, MN
[This presentation has] given me greater ability to share the historical facts backing up the accuracy of Scripture and divinity of Jesus.
-SJ Event Participant Minneapolis, MN
I appreciate this eye-opening study. I have a very inquisistive and data-driven mind and this helped me really affirm what I believe and why. Thank you! I grew up [in a tradition where] religion was always "assumed," so thank you for helping me open my eyes.

Brings tangibility and reality to the exstence of God. Provides knowledge and tools to use to support the argument of God's presence.

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.

Surprised by Faith book
We have been extremely blessed to have had Dr. Don Bierle speak to our congregation over the years! He has strengthend, educated, and encouraged our people in dealing with difficult questions concerning evolutionary theories and secular thinking. His book Surprised by Faith is a must read! Packaged within a personal journey of faith, Bierle gives brilliant and compelling evidence for answering six of the most important questions we can ask.

I have learned a lot about macro and micro evolution in my science books. You have vastly widened my knowledge on both subjects. Thank you.
-AH Event Participant St. Michael, MN
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.
