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.

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.
