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

Dr. Qureshi's book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus offers the fascinating story of the conversion of a sincere young Ahmadiyya man who tried his best to seek Allah and eventually fell in love with Christ. I trust that this book can be a powerful encouragement for all Christians to pray for many Muslims to find Jesus Christ. -- Mark Gabriel, , Author and former lecturer, University of Cairo Fresh, striking, highly illuminating, and sometimes heartbreaking, Qureshi's story is worth a thousand textbooks. It should be read by Muslims and all who care deeply about our Muslim friends and fellow-citizens. -- Dr. Os Guinness, , Author and social critic Nabeel Qureshi's story is among the most unique two or three testimonies that I have ever heard. Add to this the fact that I knew Nabeel quite well while he was still a Muslim, having visited with and spoken to him several times during his search for the one true God. His quest brought together several exceptional features: a very bright mind, extraordinary sincerity, original research, and a willingness to follow the evidence trail wherever it took him. His search led to the cross and to Jesus Christ, who was resurrected from the dead. -- Gary R. Habermas, , Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University Nabeel describes the yearning in the hearts of millions of Muslims around the world. This book is a must-read for all seeking to share the hope of Christ with Muslims. -- Fouad Masri, , President and CEO, Crescent Project This book gives westerners a glimpse of the richness of family and love in a devout Muslim home; it is an enviable picture of respect, devotion, and society. But Christians and Muslims alike are told stories about their religions when they are young, while few have ever personally researched the writings of their founding fathers to assess the validity that undergirds their respective faiths. In his personal quest to know the truth, Nabeel Qureshi paves the way for an analytical study of the faiths, dissecting the Christian and Islamic arguments, specifically citing numerous Islamic hadith and early Christian texts, so that the reader can see a logical progression to the analyses. But it is also a deeply personal heart-wrenching and tear-evoking saga of the life of a young Muslim growing up in the West, a gripping biography that is impossible to put down. In the end, many people of faith will agree: Nabeel Qureshi needs our prayers. God bless this young man for his boldness, and we pray for his protection. -- James M. Tour, , Professor of Chemistry, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Rice University For anyone seeking understanding of their Muslim neighbors or colleagues, this is a book to read. We go on a journey from the inside out. We are introduced to the depth of spirituality, the love and honor of family, and the way a person "sees" and "feels" in a devout Muslim home. This is profound book that skillfully shows the core differences between the gospel and Islamic claims. I highly recommend it. -- Dr. Stuart McAllister, , Regional Director The Americas, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries Nabeel Qureshi is a medical doctor by training with two master's degrees in biblical studies and further academic work on the horizon. He first began to study the Bible in order to challenge it and, incredibly, came to know Jesus as a result. In my many travels, I have seldom seen such genuine intellect combined matched with passion. I am thrilled to see his unique and gripping story in print and know that you will be encouraged and profoundly challenged by it as well. This is truly a "must-read book" for our times, as diverse worldviews each must face the test of truth. -- Ravi Zacharias, , Author and Speaker Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is an urgently needed book with a gripping story. It reaches both East and West, teaching Christians about Islam from an insider's perspective and helping Muslims understand the love and truth of Jesus. Nabeel Qureshi masterfully argues for the Gospel while painting a beautiful portrait of Muslim families and heritage, avoiding the fear-mongering and finger-pointing that are all too pervasive in today's sensationalist world. I unreservedly recommend this book to all. ---It will feed your heart and mind, while keeping your fingers turning the page! -- Josh McDowell, , Author and Speaker
