    Story
    "An excellent reason for the author to narrate"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus to be better than the print version?

    Very much so, since the author could correctly pronounce the Arabic words and Pakistani names and references. The emotion the author has also comes through at appropriate times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This was an autobiography so this isn't as relevant a question. The friendship between Nabeel and David Wood was well displayed.


    Which character – as performed by Nabeel Qureshi – was your favorite?

    This book wasn't performed like some since it was the author telling his story so he didn't make up different voices but told it well, still.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was impressed how Nabeel was able to convey his deep sense of loss of losing his identity as a Muslim and the grief it brought his family.


    Any additional comments?

    I heard a number of interviews about the book and I felt that I would have missed out if I hadn't listened to the book myself.

    "EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

    This is one of the best books I have listened to.
    I recommend it highly because:
    - it is brutally honest; it does not sugar coat the conversion experience
    He shares his journey "warts and all"
    - It is highly informative and educational; I learnt much about Islam
    - It is highly inspiring
    - It is well presented and enjoyable to listen to.

    The author is very articulate and communicates not only observable actions but also intent and feelings on his explorative journey. I was highly engaged listening to it. There were numerous times that I was teary eyed as I associated greately with Nabeel's conversion.

    I cannot recommend it enough.

    Story
    "Excellent, must-read"
    What made the experience of listening to Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus the most enjoyable?

    I am also a Christian that came from a Pakistani family and was raised Muslim. I can relate to much of Nabeel's story. The strength the the apologetic presented in this story is amazing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, though I did finish it in just a few days. The story was so compelling.


    Any additional comments?

    Nabeel's story is very well written, and well narrated

    "fantastic"

    I typically stay away from conversion stories because so often they are written like children's stories. As a pastor, out of a feeling of obligation, I'll read one on occasion anyhow. I was so pleasantly surprised by this one. I simply cannot say enough good about this book. It was very deep, and gave me an appreciation for Islam in the process. This book challenged my beliefs and grew my faith in God. Read it, you won't be disappointed

    "Awesome Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus to be better than the print version?

    Yes. It's easy to follow along and captivating.


    Which character – as performed by Nabeel Qureshi – was your favorite?

    Nabeel Qureshi


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Seek and You Shall Find


    Any additional comments?

    This book made my cry. Everyone should read this book. Those who have dug for the truth will be able to read through this book and it will remind them of their own journey and re-energize them. I hope for others this helps them, whether they are just starting the process or are already engaged.

    Story
    "Excellent and in-depth"
    If you could sum up Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, Real and In-Depth


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus?

    The honesty of his gut-wrenching conclusions and the decisions he had to make.


    What about Nabeel Qureshi’s performance did you like?

    Everything. He was telling his own story, and it showed. No fakeness here.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A film that will make you think.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must-read or must-listen to. Goes very in-depth into both faiths, and believe me, the author did NOT want to come to the conclusion he came to... it's a fascinating and honest journey, one that took a great deal of courage to share. Good job, my brother in the Lord.

    "A Captivating Story"
    Where does Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my top favorite audiobooks.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The insight into his muslim faith, and the "Eastern" mindset.


    What does Nabeel Qureshi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to him speak in Arabic made the story come alive. It is a beautiful sounding language.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. It had some parts that made me smile, and some parts that made me moan in sadness a little.


    Any additional comments?

    The story of Nabeel's conversion to Christianity was amazing. It is not uncommon for Muslims to have dreams and visions which lead him to Jesus. However, it is less common for us westerners to have the same experience. Hearing his experiences has deepened my faith, and my love for Jesus.

    "Read In One Sitting"

    I read this entire thing in one sitting. I've never done that before. The book was intellectually stimulating. I think that everyone, Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Agnostic, Atheist etc. should read this book.

    The book is a memoir about the intellectual and spiritual journey of a young Muslim boy in the United States and how when he goes off to college, he investigates his Faith intellectually with his best friend (a Christian named David) and how they delve into the Bible, history, theology, the Qur'an, and the Hadith and (spoiler) how during his journey, this young college student was given dreams and visions from God.

    Giving out fewer stars because I was inflating my start in a way that did not differentiate the mediocre and the fantastic.

    Story
    "A Must Read/Listen"

    This story is deep in meaning, and very enlightening. It is a call for Christians to better understand their faith, and to love more and deeper as it is Christ's love that leads people to Jesus.

    I gained a far greater understanding of Islam in a non-textbook format. There are Muslims that love others, and there are Muslims that hate others. Muslims do seek for all to join Islam as all Christians seek for all to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior in their lives. The problem is that a large group of Muslims understand their faith very well and try to attain a pure Islamic world by the sword.

    Thankfully, the book revolves around a Muslim family exhibiting great love. That love is pure. The parents only want the best for their children, and that is for them to be great ambassadors of the Muslim faith. Nabeel Qureshi was that ambassador and natural apologist.

    Mr. Qureshi was called by Jesus through a friend's introduction. The key is that Mr. Qureshi honestly and humbly sought the one and true God. At first he had no doubt that god was Allah, and then the true God revealed Himself to Mr. Qureshi.

    The beauty seen in this book:

    1. Love is the key to bringing people to Christ Jesus.
    2. Always seek God with all your heart and you will find Him.
    3. You may be called to give up all you know, have, and love for Him.
    3. Whatever your faith, know it to the core from the holy books that define it.
    4. Be brave. The joy and safety for Christians has nothing to do with our lives in this world, but is the salvation through Jesus. On this world we are to be used to do God's will for His plan. "My thoughts are not your thoughts. Neither are my ways your ways.", says the Lord. Death and pain are unavoidable in this world. God is not Santa Clause.

    Again, it was a great read/listen. The story meant much to me, and I will listen again.

    "New Understanding of Both Faiths"
    What about Nabeel Qureshi’s performance did you like?

    I think the author was by far the best person to read something so personal.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It gave me a better understanding of the Muslim faith and how it dominates everything they think and do.
