Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

An Unexpected Journey from Islam to Christianity

In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way.

Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi’s inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

Engaging and thought-provoking, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus tells a powerful story of the clash between Islam and Christianity in one man’s heart—and of the peace he eventually found in Jesus.

"I have seldom seen such genuine intellect combined with passion to match ... truly a 'must-read' book."

–Ravi Zacharias

    This book is not your average biography. It does tell an intriguing life-story, but it is also a teaching book. Nabeel has a very analytical mind, so when he writes, he shows the process and reasoning for his conclusions. I am somewhat familiar with what people trained in the sciences are up against when confronted with faith in the supernatural, but on top of that, Mr. Qureshi also had an extremely strong family support system and childhood training in Islam that were the center of everything he knew--and that is what makes the story so compelling. For days after finishing the book, I was still stunned at the realization of how much he had to give up in his search for Truth. His was no thunderclap conversion, but a methodical multi-year process. As inspiring as his testimony is, the reader will get a practical benefit too: the book readjusted my views of the Islam-related political problems facing America and the world. This book will help you know where the line of God's love is drawn between accommodating religious freedom and standing against false doctrine.

    Growing 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.

    Loved 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.
