Here is a sampling from some of the thousands of comments we have received about our events, videos, and books.
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.

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!

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.

Thank you for opening my mind and my heart to learn more. You have truly touched me. Thank you!

An excellent review of the validity of the Bible and of Christian faith.
-DR Event Participant Chanhassen, 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.

–Dr. Stephen Goold Former Senior Pastor New Hope Church (New Hope, MN)
You reassured the fact that the Bible is not a bunch of gossip stories, but true from the eyewitnesses themselves.

Surprised by Faith book
My eldest son gave me his autographed copy of your book Surprised by Faith to read several months ago. I must admit that I put off reading it… for all the reasons in your book! I will purchase my own copy as I'd like to pass it on to my other two sons, their wives and children—if they wish to read it. I will encourage that they do. At sixty-eight, I've realized that something was missing: I found it! I'd like to take you up on your offer for a copy of Growing Faith. I do not wish to tear the form from my son's signed copy of your book. Feeling Blessed.
