Here is a sampling from some of the thousands of comments we have received about our events, videos, and books.
I have invited Dr. Don Bierle to preach and hold conferences in the two churches I have pastored in the past twenty years more often than any other speaker because of his appeal to both the head and the heart. His premise that faith in Jesus Christ—is a more reasonable response by a rational person who has honestly examined the evidence appeals to a broad range of people. Fortunately for those unable to attend a seminar, he has put the core of his teaching into print in the delightful book Surprised by Faith.

Thanks for what you do. I just received the free DVD with my donor receipt letter. It was truly an answer to prayer. I have felt a pull during my prayer time to engage more with those in my family who do not know Christ. I went to the mail and there was my free DVD. I was so thankful and just wanted to let you know. I will check online for the offers that are available in April that may help in my discussions.
The FaithSearch seminar was the best apologetic seminar I have ever been part of. Not only did [it] share evidence that supports biblical faith in a systematic way, [the] visual presentation was the best I have seen bar none! Adding credibility was [the] integration of personal testimony and contemporary developments. I heartily recommend FaithSearch to any church seeking to strengthen the faith and witness of its members.

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.

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.

This is a wonderful collection of information everyone should hear! I was ripped to shreds as a freshman in college—some science majors teamed up to tear down Christianity. I didn't have anything tangible to throw back. I have spend many years rebuilding—"discovering." I'd love to meet up with them again.

This presentation has given me answers to some of the questions I've been asked before that I didn't know quite how to answer. Awesome job!

At a moment in my life where I am questioning, "Where are you God? Are you there?" you brought me hope. Thank you.

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.
--GA Participant Brooklyn Park, MN
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.
