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.

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.

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.
--SW Participant Waconia, 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.

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
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.

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.

Dr. Don Bierle and the FaithSearch ministry has blessed our congregation immensely throughout our many years of partnership. Surprised by Faith is a favorite among our Christian education offerings on Sunday mornings, and this resouce has been effectively used in a variety of formats within our congregation including groups large and small as well as individual instruction. I highly recommend this resource as one that changes not only minds but hearts as well.
-Kirk Flaa Senior Pastor, Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church Sioux Falls, SD
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!

Sunday eve I "forced" our ninth-grade son to come, and he did—kicking and screaming. He asked to come back Monday night because he found it so interesting. Our eighteen-year-old son also came and was fascinated. Thank you so much for your message. I wish we could have had more time.
