Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi comes this personal, challenging, and respectful answer to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.

San Bernardino was the most lethal terror attack on American soil since 9/11, and it came on the heels of a coordinated assault on Paris. There is no question that innocents were slaughtered in the name of Allah and in the way of jihad, but do the terrorists' actions actually reflect the religion of Islam? The answer to this question is more pressing than ever as waves of Muslim refugees arrive in the West, seeking shelter from the violent ideology of ISIS.

Setting aside speculations and competing voices, what really is jihad? How are we to understand jihad in relation to our Muslim neighbors and friends? Why is there such a surge of Islamist terrorism in the world today, and how are we to respond?

In Answering Jihad, best-selling author Nabeel Qureshi (Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus) answers these questions from the perspective of a former Muslim who is deeply concerned for both his Muslim family and his American homeland.

Great insight into a controversial subject

The author provided great balance between history and modern application. I learned several things that will help me to lovingly interact with a population that is expectedly diverse even though they may at first appear to be radically different--at times even dangerous. The author tactfully works through some key concerns.

Great explanations to many tough questions

The book written by Dr. Quereshi is very helpful for a Christian to understand the Islamic faith and the evil of Islamic terrorism. It's not filled with politically charged rhetoric but rather facts from a informed and educated former Muslim who understands being a Muslim, especially in the West. Give this book your time if you want to understand truth of Islam in conjunction with what we see in our world today with the problem radical Islam.

Real Islam Revealed

In this book the author serves to present the real theology, history, and mission of Islam. Based on historical evidence, Islamic texts- of which are mostly available in Arabic but have been translated - the author gives light to events seen in today's headlines and past wars. A must read

Incredibly informative and spirit led

A new option to fear of Muslims. Try it! After all Our Father instructed us to LOVE those who persecute us. Awesome awesome book by a wonderful man of God.

Brilliantly written - Compassionately delivered

What made the experience of listening to Answering Jihad the most enjoyable?

Dr. Quereshi is fast becoming one of my favorite new authors. His personal insight on the subject of Islam is unparalleled. The pain he lives through daily resulting from his choice to follow Christ is an example for all believers. I cannot recommend his works highly enough .

If you are a Christian, and you truly care about ALL people, then you must pray for and love muslim people. Dr. Quereshi offers a lens into the world of islam that will open your eyes to how to love a significant number of people who are devout, but not yet following Christ.

Have you listened to any of Nabeel Qureshi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed his first book more, but likely since it was more of his personal testimony on coming to Christ.

Thought provoking

Quereshi presents clear and convincing arguments for why all of us must reevaluate the way we view and behave toward Muslims, and Islam as a whole. This is a much needed voice of love and reason in the volatile cultural climate we find ourselves in today.

Different

While the material was good, it was certainly different from his other books. His other books had more emotion. Until I got to the last 2 chapters it all just seemed like facts. I didn't experience the passion I have come to love about his books until the last two chapters. Please understand, he does a phenomenal job of presenting the information and answering the questions. I really enjoyed this book.

Sharp, honest, challenging and full of compassion

I've never heard such a precise, clear and thorough exposition on the concept of Jihad from a Christian perspective. Qureshi untangles every strand in the often confusing web of opinions on the matter, and takes us to the roots of each school of thought. His crystal clear logic is complemented by firm scriptural evidence that is well referenced. The call to respond to violent jihad with sacrificial love is undeniably true to the gospel and he gives us ample evidence from scripture to make the case for his proposed "better way forward".
Thank you Nabeel!
