Surprised by Faith will strengthen your own faith in God, in the reliability of the Bible, and in the truth of Jesus Christ.
– Billy Graham, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
The world is changing so rapidly that many are shaken with uncertainties. This is compounded by an erosion of confidence in absolute truth and traditional values. The result is a floundering search for a reliable source of purpose and meaning in life. Fear, not anticipation, fills some hearts as people think about the future. Some contend that turning to faith is anti-intellectual. “God is about religion,” they say, “a crutch for the weak.” These are mere caricatures resulting from ignorance. This book confronts false stereotypes and examines the astonishing body of scientific and historical evidence supporting the truth that God exists and cares about people’s future. This is the Gospel with evidence.
As a college student, amid academic success and athletic achievement, Don Bierle began searching for answers to the important questions of life. He found there is more to life than what can be seen, touched, and measured! Using the scrutiny and logic of his scientific training he tested the foundations for faith, and was surprised—and changed—by the answers he discovered. Hundreds of thousands of people have now discovered these answers through his book Surprised by Faith. For them, the discovery has been an “Ah-ha!” experience resulting in transformation and a life of peace and hope.

Dr. Bierle writes with an academic style, but it is easy to understand and enjoyable. The book provides a solid overview of the abundant evidence for the Christian faith, such as the unique nature of the Christian God (compared to other religions) and the New Testament’s robust status as a historical work (rather than myth). His theological reasoning is very insightful and his personal experiences relatable, making this an excellent resource for students, those interested in apologetics, and anyone hoping to share information with a seeking friend!
