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… (mehr)

Great book! ( )

I absolutely loved this book! It is both a biographical account of Qureshi’s personal journey to accepting Jesus Christ as Savior, and a presentation of historical evidence and intellectual arguments for the truth of Christianity. It is certainly a fascinating and compelling journey well worth reading!

It also gave me more insight into Islam and Muslims than any other reading I have done. I have learned about the basic beliefs and practices of the religion in a classroom, but this is the first real glimpse I have had of how actual Muslim people and families live their lives in the Western world. I must admit, there are several things I admire about their religious culture: for one, the way their entire daily routine is centered around worshipping God; and for another, how they train their children, practically from birth, to understand and defend their faith in-depth. I think Christians would do well to follow their example in those respects, so that we wouldn’t take for granted that God is the center of our lives and deserves praise in all things, and so the next generation would be better equipped to discuss and defend their beliefs with anyone who asks.

Qureshi paints a vivid picture of his life, faith, and family, his path to accepting Jesus as Lord and the consequences of that decision, the historical and logical arguments for changing his beliefs and the personal encounters he had with the personal God. I would recommend this book to anyone! ( )

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.

En väldigt spännande och läsvärd bok.
Den har bredd då man både får fakta, men utan att bli tråkig då den är skriven på ett självbiografiskt sätt. En bok som alla som funderar över Islam och Kristendom borde läsa för att kunna bilda sig en uppfattning utan att behöva ta upp en tjock faktabok.

Ett måste för alla kristna som har en vän eller bekant som bekänner sig till Islam. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Easily readable (chapters are only a few pages long and terminology is highlighted in sidebars).

The title clearly describes the subject, but I wasn’t sure exactly how the author would relate his personal journey of coming to Christ. That curiosity was quickly overcome by how the author discussed his early life and his family, how he was taught his Islam belief, and perhaps best of all, core tenets of his belief. The discussion of the tenets of his faith helped me understand a lot about how differences in Western/Christian and Islamic cultures can lead to conflict.

The book could serve as a primer on how to talk about the Christian faith not only with a Muslim but also with just non-Christians/atheists.
I highly recommend! ( )
