I heard him on the radio and thought that it would be a good book to read. It was far better than I had even thought. He writes of his own upbringing in a loving Muslim family in the West, and describes the pain he and that family share as he is led by the Spirit to respond to the real message of the Bible. A very honest and descriptive account of his honest questions and his eventual turn to faith in Christ.
Enlighting look into the Muslim religion from a different point of view - a devout mmber of a close-knit family practicing a religion that does not give any option of personal choice. God's grace opens the writer's heart and brings him to recognize truths that the Muslim religion denies. The book contrasts the strength of the Christian faith to the weakness of the Muslim faith in the face of an honest and rational inquiry.
An excellent book that is truly a page turner. If you are not very familiar with the Muslim faith you will be when you finish this book. Qureshi's struggle to find the truth and his realization as to what his decision will do to hurt those whom he holds dearest keeps the reader personally involved. A secondary theme is the challenging apologetics used by his Christian friends. An outstanding example demonstrating how to witness to an individual of the Muslim faith.
All I can say is God is so loving and amazing. My heart breaks for Arab Muslims and I hear too often such uninformed harshness about Muslims in America. This book was so well written and I really do hope i have the privledge of meeting Nabeel someday.
