Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Western Background and Subset of Islam

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

God shows up!

Any additional comments?

I would have given this book 5 stars except for three things. First, my own (admittedly mistaken) preconception prior to beginning the book that the author was born and raised in the Middle East. He was raised in the west. One would expect that the thinking process of the author, like any third culture kid, would be influenced by the culture in which he lives (I had been expecting to read about what God is doing in the lives of people in the Middle East, where the emphasis on submitting to authority can only be greater ). Secondly, the author comes from a sect of Islam which most Muslims do not consider as "part of the fold". And thirdly, for long stretches this book read a bit too much like an apologetic work instead of a personal story/testimony.<br/><br/>However, this isn't a book of dry facts. God Himself shows up dramatically in a brief scene halfway into the book and even bigger at the end. Secondly, the author's western background and his former brand of Islam does not negate how God has worked and will continue to work in his life. And the information on his Islamic sect can be helpful to other seekers or persons desiring to share with seekers. This book was not only a good read, but listening to the author himself narrate on the Audible version and hearing his passion at the end was an even bigger plus. May God continue to raise up an army of evangelists like Nabeel!

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.

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.

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.

A fascinating insight into Islam and the person perspective of a Muslim.

The grappling with the core beliefs of Islam and Christianity were well explained and and put simply enough you don't need a theological doctorate to follow the arguments and counter arguments.

Overall, very helpful.

Thank you

Having a most loved granddaughter, who became a moslem a few years ago and is now married to a moslem.
i am a very devoted follower of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ seeking to share the gospel as GOD enables me. We still have a loving relationship. I wanted to read this book as with this knowledge of Islam I look to GOD to guide me in my conversations with Naomi & her husband Mahmoud. I would say I found the dialog was abit long winded at times

Powerful biography

Nabeel is searching for the truth. His unwillingness to compromise takes him down a path he doesn't want to take. He resists, argues and drags his feet in the face of losing everyone he loves. An amazing, moving story that this incredibly brave man shares so well. God bless you.

Fascinating, reads like an episode of CSI

But it is an autobiography!
Which could be a service to humanity.
I read it because of what IS are doing in the name of Islam, I had assumed IS were a perversion, it appears not.
Had never appreciated before the magnitude of the choice Jesus represents!

A dangerous narrative

Mid way through this book I realised that this was a dangerous narrative, dangerous because of the sacrifice of an established world-view and the consequences.

I was thankful that the author narrated his own story - this added to it's authenticity.

There was a section of dialogue in a cafe; the words that came to mind was conceited arrogance, but I endeavoured to re-think my opinion and it changed to 'the fear of losing the foundations of what you have built your whole life upon, a striving....but ultimately 'fear' that leads to an outward edifice that tries to mask it. And I realised how easy it is to bunker down in our belief system.

I have learnt much about Islam and for this I am thankful. I have learnt something about myself and attitudes.

In the latter section of the book as the narrative builds and reaches it's conclusion the utter pain of this man's journey was palpable.

I commend this book to you.

A story of devoutness

If Muslims can be so devoted to a false religion, why aren't we Christians enthusiastic about and full of faith in the one and only true God?! Why aren't we eager to know the Word by rote and in spirit and to defend it to the hilt?

Insight into Islam as a living cultural faith yet

Islam can't compare to what the Bible has to say about who Jesus is and what God has done out of love for his people. Nabeel is so rational but torn in his investigation and realisation of how big the difference really is between the faiths. I cried when he finally accepted Jesus but also felt his pain at losing his culture and family.
A really easy to listen to and we'll spoken audio.
Highly recommended.

Nabeel’s journey is a long and eye opening look at a Muslim struggling with his religion. His family is the best part of the whole, it shows the differences between Eastern and western upbringing and reason why leaving the faith is so hard. I hope Nabeel’s family the best since he pass away in September. Still an amazing stories that will test your faith

An entertaining expedition into the heart of Islam

This intensely interesting book will hold your attention as Quresh, a devout Muslim, teaches us how Muslims are captured by faithful devotion to Allah and the prophet Muhammad. Without criticising or denigrating his own family's faith, Qureshi sincerely and humbly takes us on an incredible journey that reaches a climax where he, himself accepts Christ as the Son of God, Redeemer and Saviour.
The book is very well read, clearly enunciated and is full of rich stories that will captivate the listener.
For listeners who are not Christian, it will be an exceptional, exploratory experience.
This is highly recommended for anyone who seeks knowledge of Islam and Christianity.

The story was very interesting that I actually finished it in less than 3 days (I'm a casual audiobook listener).

Very organized and logical storyline. Very well presented arguments and counter-arguments. Unique presentation of the story as a Muslim which was captivating!
