:

In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, now expanded with bonus content, 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 struggled with an inner turmoil that will challenge Christians, Muslims, and all those who are interested in the world's greatest religions.

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

Enthralling
5 stars By Derek Davey, Aug 10 2017
Nabeel tells the story of his devout Muslim family, the product of Muslim missionaries. Born of Pakistani parents with Urdu language, the family moved to the USA where Nabeel was born. He relates the rather intensive oral learning of the Quran, and later apologetics. He was devout and even acted in a missionary way at school and university. Most of the book is taken up after he meets a Christian with whom he becomes a friend and sparring partner over the relative merits of the belief systems. Crises arise when he needed to search documents such as the Bible, Quran, and Hadiths, to justify initially criticism of Christianity, and then support Islam. He was found wanting. The oral learning he had from his parents and imams was not backed up by original documents. He had nothing to stand on. He deals a little with the honour-shame culture and links that to family and community authority figures, a new understanding for me. And these could not back up what they had taught him. Questioning is frowned on. I was also surprised at the lack of the studying of the original documents in Islam. It is common knowledge that the Quran is memorised in its original text, and thus few ever understand it. (It is verbal learning in a foreign language.) A translation-commentary is required required reading. The Quran and Hadiths contain the seeds of their own destruction. Nabeel accepted The Truth, and lost his family.

Informing
5 stars By Christian Reviewer, Apr 25 2017
This book informed me greatly on the struggles that Muslims have when leaving their faith and about life as a Muslim. When I first started reading it I was a little skeptical because it seemed to glorify Islam. However, I later read that was how Nabeel actually viewed and enjoyed his younger years. Throughout the book, Nabeel engages with his best friend David Wood in discussing Christianity. On a side note, the book encourages the readers to view David's testimony and apologetic channel on YouTube. Having now seen some of those videos, Nabeel would have had a very interesting time discussing his faith with David. I strongly recommend this book.

Useful
4 stars By Julie, Apr 12 2017
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi is a very useful book in terms of getting to the heart of Muslim thinking. Discovering that Muslims use 'authority' as the basis for what they believe was very helpful to me. By this Qureshi means that respected teachers (Imams, parents and scholars) interpret the Quran and pass on their knowledge to Muslim believers, which is accepted as truth. Qureshi was challenged by a friend to check things out for himself by applying the historical and other typical 'Western' methods of analysis to Muslim writings. Over a long period of time, Qureshi, a doctor, became a Christian as a result of doing this, despite great personal cost to him and his loving and sincere Muslim family. I am reminded that God uses any and every means to draw people to himself, including intellectual pathways. A useful tool for some chapters are suggestions for further readings on the chapter topics. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is friendly with a person of Muslim belief.

Very Informative Read!
5 stars By M. C. Shannon, Feb 02 2017
I absolutely loved this book. I picked up this book on a recommendation from a friend and I found myself deeply engaged with the moving story that Qureshi shares. I even learned a lot about the Islamic faith along the way. I wanted the story to keep going when I had finished. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to share Jesus with someone from a muslim background, or someone who is just interested in understanding Islam a bit better.

A must read book
5 stars By jin pian, Jan 30 2017
Seeking Allah, finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi
This is an intriguing book in which the author Nabeel brought up to be a devout Muslim sought to defend his faith. His friendship with a Christian, David led to him investigating more into the truth about Jesus. When he finally got to read the Gospel of John and Mark he found the answer that Jesus was truly divine. But his loyalty to his Islamic faith made him refuse to accept it bringing a tension between him and David. He believed that the apostle Paul was a liar and had turned Jesus into God and that the Trinity amounted to polytheism. Then during a study of electrons and molecules, the truth of the Trinity hit him. 
Finally after researching he found out that what he was taught about Mohammed and the Quran was false, he submitted to Jesus. Upon confessing him as Lord, he felt the pain of the cross when it led to his conflict with his beloved parents. It's a book written with intensity of thought and emotion. It's a must read for anyone who seeks to know the true God and those who want to make Him known.
