Persuaded by the Evidence

by Doug Sharp & Jerry Bergman

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


A teacher and preacher of evolution re-examines science and becomes a believer in the Creator. A geologist searches the rock layers for evidence of evolution and finds creation. Jolted out of Christianity by a college professor, a new father faces a serious accident and finds God. A profoundly deaf medical technologist believes in evolution until he reads Dr. Morris’ book, The Genesis Flood. A confident atheist who sneers at Christianity and creation accepts the challenge to search the evidence and finds out he was wrong. Add to these more than 30 other similar chronicles and Persuaded by the Evidence becomes an impelling, imperative book. The men who share these accounts represent a wide range of experience, artist, PhD, teacher, Hindu Brahmin converted to Christianity, agricultural researcher, father, and many more.

A good summation of this book come from one of the authors, “…my faith was totally changed. I then believed that God’s word was true from the very beginning (Ps. 119:160)” (p. 65). Up-to-date, erudite, intriguing, strongly witnessing for the Lord, this journal of life treks into the truth provides much food for thought for all readers, whether creationists, evolutionists, or those unsure of their stance. Written straight from the heart, without frills and furbelows, with full reliance on actuality, it leaves indelible marks in readers’ thoughts. Persuaded by the Evidence will find an interested audience in high schools and colleges and will make an excellent reference for church workers and individual readers. With its 2 – 5 page cameos, this book of spiritual adventures fits well into spare moment reading. – Donna Eggett,
