Overview

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity by Nabeel Qureshi

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

Born into a Muslim family, Nabeel Qureshi traveled a sometimes troubling, always deeply challenging -- and in the end, joyful -- personal and intellectual journey to Christian conviction. Friendship and family both figure prominently in his story, from his early years of close family and faith connections, through his high school years of becoming a third-culture Muslim-American, and into his college friendship with a Christian friend who stuck with him closer than a brother. Friendship alone, however, would not have dislodged him from his Muslim roots; he makes that abundantly clear. He had to be convinced that Christianity was true, which meant facing the formerly (to him) unthinkable question of whether Islam wasn't. Thus alongside his paths of family and friendship there is an intersecting one of deep intellectual inquiry -- and in the end, spiritual discovery. He wrote the story well, and in these paths he traveled, there's something there that can speak to everyone. I give this book my highest recommendation.

This is a great book on a number of levels. I read the whole the day book the day I got it, it's a page turner. 1) Well written The book isn't hard to understand or written at a level to high for most readers. It should be easy for most people to read. Plus it is really interesting. I knew much of Nabeel's story when I read the book and still found it hard to put down. Also Nabeel writes with a lot of humor making it a pleasant read. 2) Informative This book really helped me to understand Islam in a way that reading lots of other material has not. This is because the book is really a short autobiography. So you understand how Nabeel thought growing up in Islam. Also you get a good outlay of arguments used Islam. As Nabeel challenges others and is challenged you get to see how many Muslims think and approach truth. Which is fascinating. 3) Inspiring After reading the book, it is hard not to come away inspired. God works in amazing ways through fallible people to soften hearts. Reading this drove home the importance to me of seeking God first and then doing what he says. I really couldn't recommend the book more highly

Excellent story. It helps us westerners understand the traditions of a Muslim family under the Islam. Inspiring how Dr. Qureshi challenges all about Christianity in order to keep embracing what he believe in, Islam. I have seen several of his conferences, and it is very inspiring. He puts in all he speaks of the Christian faith the passion he learned from Islam. We should learn from him and really fall in love with Jesus. I pray for him and his parents! I am recommending this book to all my friends and family. Thanks Dr,. Quereshi for sharing with the world your experience. You are a brave man!! God bless you!

I really loved this book. It is clearly written and doesn't hesitate to deal with difficult issues. It explains the process by which a devout Muslim came to the Chritian faith. It encouraged me, as a christian, to look deeper into my own faith and be prepared to give a reason for the hope i have.

Qureshi writes an intellectual and yet, emotionally stirring account of his intellectual,religious and cultural journey. This book was fascinating as it dealt with so many deep personal and religious beliefs and asked the hard hitting questions that few are willing to wrestle. I found my mind challenged and my compassion heightened by this man's struggle to find truth and understand who God really is regardless of the personal cost.

I found this book to be an exceptional book.  I could hardly put it down.  It open my eyes as to how and why Muslims think and act the way they do.  It also showed me how to have a conversation with them concerning Christ and the Holy Bible.  But most of all being able to defend the Gospel with facts and in love.

This story was of great encouragement to me, as I see honest-hearted Muslims seeking the truth about Jesus and Christianity. I liked the way he presented the story of his mental journey in chronological order, with teasers along the way. I appreciated also that he documented the facts that led to each shift in his thinking.

Very educational on the Muslim Faith, and very emotional for a Christian believer.

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, clearly explains the differences between Islam and Christianity. The reader becomes involved in the intellectual pursuit of verifying what beliefs are true. The author has included many quotations from scholars that have researched this subject.

Fascinating reading and very interesting. Easy to read and hard to put down, this book is an honest and transparent look at the path the author took to come to the realization that Jesus is truly the Messiah. Not only will the reader learn about the author's life, his upbringing in Islam and the objections Islam has to Christianity but in the process the reader will find that he is learning something about their own faith as well. Great for any person interested in apologetics, understanding and defending your beliefs.

This was an exceptional book!  I finished it in less than two days because it is so interesting and truly a page-turner.  It provided so much insight into the Muslim faith and Nabeel's honest pursuit of truth.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone exploring or curious about Christianity, especially Muslims who wonder what Christians believe.  I'd also highly recommend it to Christians that are curious about Islam.

A very well-written, insightful book. It is clear that a lot of research, and soul-searching went into the writing of it. I want to thank the author for his encouragement, and honesty, in seeking the Ultimate Truth.

Nabeel's account of an almost idyllic childhood, his close relationship with his parents, and his transparency about his search for truth made this easy to read, and hard to put down. The real pain and personal sacrifice that he experienced from embracing Christ as his Savior was agonizing and inspiring at once.

This was a fascinating account of a devout Muslim, Nabeel Qureshi, finding Jesus and his strenuous path to acceptance. I have had the pleasure of hearing Nabeel speak with Dr. Ravi Zacharias, both great thinkers with great hearts. Nabeel's serious, intellectual struggles are thoroughly explored, a great read for those who have a theology background. I did want the "Wow" moments to stand on their own instead of being bogged down in lengthy explanations sometimes.  I stayed up waaaaaay past my bedtime to finish this one, though, a good sign. The second I was done with this book a friend nabbed it from me to borrow, another good sign.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone, just beware that it’s a bit intellectual and not light reading for the beach by any means. That doesn’t mean you should shy away—instead, jump right in. Learn how to better pray and make friendships that open doors. Nabeel, while an incredibly smart writer, is also warm and welcoming and won’t leave you hanging as a reader. In the end, Nabeel has to come to grips with what he is studying and what God is laying on his heart…despite the consequences that still haunt him. What a story! (Dislosure: I received a complementary copy of this book from the BookLook Bloggers program).

This is a good read for Christ followers to read. Helps understand how to talk with Muslims

This author is so passionate and sincere in his journey to find God. He was raised Muslim and comes from a loving home environment. I didn't really have much true previous knowledge about Islam so I found the parts describing it very interesting. He is a good Muslim boy growing up and through college. For some time, his best friend is a Christian. They have many discussions about religion over the years. Both are smart. They study historical facts to explain Islam and Christianity. This leads to him switching to Christianity. It's a very difficult decision because he was so devout in his beliefs, and his family is still Muslim. I thoroughly enjoyed this entire book. I often feel that someone is trying to shove religion at me, but this book takes the reader along on it's logical and educated approach to everything. It speaks to the mind and spirit. It is also respectful. In the beginning, he is Muslim, and before the end, he is Christian, but he doesn't put down the believers of either religion during his research. I recommend Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus to people of all faiths and non-faith.

If you are a Christian, you should read this book. Period. If you are not a Christian and you are curious about Christianity, or about Islam, or about conversion experiences, I highly recommend it. Also, if you like a good memoir, you'll like this. Even though "being a memoir" was not the goal of the book, it does read as a really good one. Basically, read this book.
