NEW 3rd Edition

9780310092643.jpg_1.jpg

In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, now expanded with new bonus content, 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 struggled with an inner turmoil that will challenge Christians, Muslims, and all those who are interested in the world’s greatest religions.

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.


ON-DEMAND STREAMING EVENT

In 2014, when Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was first released, Nabeel hosted a live event alongside Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg where he shared his story along with a balanced and accurate assessment of Islam through a special Q&A session with the audience.

To celebrate the release of the expanded 3rd Edition of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Zondervan has re-broadcast this event to the public.

Perfect for small groups, apologetics classes, individual study or as a church wide event, communities can use this event to help build a balanced and accurate assessment of Islam with the truth of Scripture.

This ninety-minute-long on-demand event includes Nabeel sharing his testimony followed by a lively and informative Q&A with the audience hosted by Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg. You will be encouraged by the power of the Gospel and the work of God in the lives of those who are seeking.

Key Quotes

“I never said, ‘I choose to remain Muslim because it would cost my family if I were to follow Jesus.’ Far from it, I subconsciously found ways and means to go on rejecting the Gospel so I would not be faced with what I would have to pay.”

“These are the costs Muslims must calculate when considering the gospel: losing the relationships they have built in this life, potentially losing this life itself, and if they are wrong, losing their afterlife in paradise. It is no understatement to say that Muslims often risk everything to embrace the cross.”

“There are simply too many barriers for Muslim immigrants to understand Christians and the West by sheer circumstance. Only the exceptional blend of love, humility, hospitality, and persistence can overcome these barriers, and not enough people make the effort.”

“It was not that Jesus was turning me against my parents. It was that, if my family stood against God, I had to choose one or the other. God is obviously best, even if that caused me to turn against my family. But how? How could I bear the pain?”

“All suffering is worth it to follow Jesus. He is that amazing.”

Endorsements

I have seldom seen such genuine intellect combined with passion to match … truly a ‘must-read’ book.
— Ravi Zacharias
Regardless of where you are on your pathway of faith, I predict you’ll benefit deeply from reading Nabeel’s account...his saga needs to be read far and wide, by all people who value truth and who ache to know God personally.
— Lee Strobel, author, The Case for Christ
Fresh, striking, highly illuminating, and sometimes heartbreaking, Qureshi’s story is worth a thousand textbooks.
— Os Guinness, author and social critic
This is an urgently needed book with a gripping story. Nabeel Qureshi masterfully argues for the gospel while painting a beautiful portrait of Muslim families and heritage, avoiding the fearmongering and finger-pointing that are all too pervasive in today’s sensationalist world.
— Josh D. McDowell, author and speaker
