Growing up, Nabeel Qureshi never thought he would consider turning from his family's deeply held beliefs in Islam. It was his whole world, his identity. Yet, as he grew into a young man earnestly seeking for God to speak into his life, he was surprised by what he found. What he found was a growing question about the divinity of Jesus, which lead ultimately to his conversion to Christianity.
In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel shares the powerful story of his journey from faith in Allah to faith in Jesus Christ. Along the way, he gives valuable insight into Islam, sharing cultural, intellectual and theological barriers that often stand in the way of Muslims accepting Jesus. However, despite his objections to Christianity, it was the friendship of Christians, the historical facts of the life of Jesus, and divine revelation through a dream and vision that convinced Nabeel of the truth of the Gospel. Nabeel's testimony will deepen your understanding of American Muslims and draw you closer to Jesus as you consider the amazing ways He works today.

Christy Bower4 Stars Out Of 5A Young Muslim Explores the Claims of Christianity and Compares Them with His Own BeliefsJanuary 24, 2015Christy BowerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Growing Up Muslim
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is a first-person account of Nabeel Qureshi as he grew up as a Muslim in Western culture. It provides a vivid contrast between the mindset of Eastern and Western thought and value systems.
Nabeel begins by reminiscing about his childhood and family life. This exploration takes the reader into new territory as he explains various Muslim customs. Although terminology is defined on each page, it does slow down a reader who is unfamiliar with it. Still, the glimpse of Muslim life was intriguing enough to keep me reading.
Muslim Meets Christian
When Nabeel reached college, the narrative took a dramatic turn as he became best friends with David, a Christian who offered a quiet and steadfast testimony for Christ. David had the sense to quietly listen to Nabeel as he struggled with his faith. Rather than arguing, David asked Nabeel penetrating questions about Islam and the Quran, urging his Muslim friend to find real, objective answers through research rather than clinging to the beliefs of his upbringing.
Why Do You Believe What You Believe?
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus takes the reader on a journey of discovery as a young Muslim man compares the beliefs of Islam and Christianity, the Quran and the Bible. He gives readers a front row seat to the findings of his research and the personal turmoil he felt as his belief system crumbled.
Whether you have questions about Islam or Christianity, this book will give you a glimpse into each belief system. Follow a young Muslim man as he explores the veracity of the claims of the Christian faith and compares them with his own beliefs.
One of the intriguing aspects of the book is how Nabeel weaves apologetics (a defense of the Christian faith) into a narrative, making it accessible to everyone. Many people, especially skeptics, wouldnt delve into the pages of a theology book, but they would read a biography. And this particular biography is laced with definitive facts about the death and resurrection of Jesus and the veracity of the Bible.
Claudia5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent insight into Christian and Muslim faiths.January 21, 2015ClaudiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Loved this story ...it gave me a whole new perspective on the love and life of a Muslim family.
To see faith in Jesus as God ...coming from a once true believer in Allah - is what TRUTH AND THE POWER OF TRUTH is all about. Changing us from believing lies to believing Truth by the power of God's Word. Thoroughly enjoyed the way the boys cared about their friendship-respected each other in their beliefs and challenged each other to make their case for Christ, Buddha, and Allah- proved to be very interesting. it is an excellent example of a learning process for all who are truly seeking to know truth and will set aside all else to find it.
Julie Morris5 Stars Out Of 5Great Book!!January 17, 2015Julie MorrisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had read reviews about this book and it sounded very interesting. I started to order it a while ago but changed my mind, just decided to think about it some more. When I got on Christianbook.com again, it was there, in my wishlist, waiting. I decided to go ahead and order it and was soooo glad I did. This book is great in that it gave me a better understanding of the Muslim faith and the differences from our Christian faith. Mr. Qureshi does an awesome job of letting you feel the struggles he went through. I was in awe of his relationship with his Christian friend David, what a great testimony, both on Nabeel's part and his friend David's. A must read, I loved it and will probably read it again!
aussiegirl5 Stars Out Of 5BarbaraJanuary 8, 2015aussiegirlQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have nothing but praise for this marvellous and insightful story by Nabeel Qureshi.I was born in India and lived there for many years, before partition and had much contact with Muslims. Who were of the calibre of Nabeel's parents and were dear friends. But I confess, I learnt more about the things that divide us Christians, from Muslims, from the in depth portayal of their life and family structure, from Nabeel's book, than ever before.
I was humbled and amazed at the diligence with which Nabeel made his journey to the foot of the Cross.
This is a book I would read again and again! Powerful witness for the Lord Jesus.Thank you Nabeel for sharing your moving story with the world. My only concern was the cover of the book tended to curl up, after several days of reading. That did Not deter me! I couldn't wait to read it till the end and was only disappointed it ended at all!!
