Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller

A 2015 Christian Book Award winner

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity in this expanded edition with new bonus content and reflections.

"My friend Nabeel Qureshi was courageous enough to chase down the truth with intellectual integrity, no matter the personal cost," (Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ)

Providing an intimate view 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 two of the world's greatest religions and the quest for truth.

Qureshi - with great courage and intimacy - wrote this book with three major purposes in mind:

  • To tear down walls between two of the world's major religions by giving non-Muslim listeners an insider's perspective into a Muslim's heart and mind.
  • To equip the listener with facts and knowledge, showing the strength of the case for the gospel contrasted with the case for Islam.
  • To portray the immense inner struggle of Muslims grappling with the gospel, including all the sacrifices and doubts that rise up along the way.

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is more than the memoir of a man's pursuit of answers to the most important issues of life and faith. Ultimately, it's the story about the transformative grace and mercy of the one true God.

This edition has been expanded to include:

  • A revised foreword and introduction
  • A new afterword by apologist Mark Mittelberg and a reflection by Nabeel's wife
  • A substantially extended epilogue that shares how Nabeel told his friend David of his decision to follow Christ, how his parents found out, and more
  • Expert contributions from scholars and ministry leaders on each section of the book, contributions previously included only in the e-book edition
  • An appendix with a topical table of contents (for teaching from Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus)
  • An appendix tackling the objection that Ahmadi Muslims - the Islamic movement that Qureshi was raised in - are not true Muslims
  • And a sneak peek prologue from Nabeel's book, No God but One: Allah or Jesus?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Moving and powerful!

Qureshi passed away after a brief and unexpected battle with cancer only four years after writing this book. This fact subtly serves to underscore the seriousness with which he contemplated his transition from Islam to Christianity, and is a reminder to believers everywhere that each day counts, and to take nothing for granted.

Perhaps most important in this work is the touching and personal exploration of his Muslim upbringing, highlighting the beauty of Muslim culture, community, and family practices. At a time when Islam is feared and misunderstood in the West, Qureshi presents Muslims as complex individuals who deserve to be understood, loved, and above all, worthy of receiving the Gospel.

Must Read

This is a must read for every Christian in the world today. There are a lot of muslims out there that need Christ. This book doesn’t just help Christians to know how to engage muslims but also anyone in general. Even more, it witnesses to the power of the Gospel beautifully. Praise God! :)

Inspiring and Educational

This book was recommended to me by a friend. It was just so good and such a blessing to read. I wish I had read it many years ago as it would have helped immensely in one hiring situation I had with someone that claimed to be a former Muslim. It would have aided me to understand the thinking and mindset of soemoen brought up as a devout Muslim. Wow. I really thought this was a well developed biography - so inspiring and challenging for Christians and seekers alike.

This reaffirmed my Christian faith!

As a Christian I listened to this book to help understand a very dear friends Muslim faith. I have read the Qur’an from a Christian point of view and had many questions. I consider myself a very well read person on Religious beliefs as well as Studied the Bible. Unwilling to confront my friend with the many questions I had, I searched for a book that could help me understand. This book of Nabeel Qureshi’s was exactly what I needed to hear. I was only sad to hear the last hour or so but realize God had fulfilled his purpose. I hope all who read or listen to this book as I did, who are Christians or Muslims (Islamic)will find the answers they are seeking. My only next thing is how I shall bring what I have learned from this book to a healthy discussion with my dear friend. I hope all will enjoy as I have.

An incredible testimony! A must on the wish list.

Doctor Qureshi was hilarious at times, and yet he was solemn in speaking out his testimony regarding his faith against his friend’s Christianity—until he heard the truth that broke his heart. What an incredible journey as he gave his testimony in accepting Christ. A must for all listeners!

Must Listen!

Nabeel has a fascinating and compelling story! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story and the complementary segments they included at the end with Mark, Michelle and David. He paints such a beautiful and eye-opening picture of his life growing up in a Muslim family and his eventual conversion to Christianity. Highly recommend this one!!

INCREDIBLE!!! This book affected me greatly!!!

I honestly don't have the words to adequately review this book, or describe how greatly it affected me. I, too, grew up in a Muslim household and found Christ later in life. My family life was nowhere near as devout as Nabeel's. Rather than immersed in the Quran and daily Islamic prayer and study, my childhood was oppressed by the cultural implications and effects of a Muslim upbringing. As the oldest of six girls who lived in a vanilla Midwestern suburb (no boys) my father resented me big time. My childhood, especially the teenage years, were filled with abuse, neglect, strict rules to follow that made no sense, and the message that girls and women were unworthy of much. I struggled big time with our "cafeteria Islamic" faith, which basically consisted of not talking to boys, not eating pork, and not uttering the name of Jesus or celebrating Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter. It was a miserable existence, and after my disinterested father arranged a marriage for me at the age of 19 to a man twice my age that no one had ever met and who lived on the other side of the country, I left home to be on my own.

It wasn't until I was in my mid-30s that I found Christ. My experience was a more gentler, kinder discovery than Nabeel's. But so much of what he wrote about with regard to family dynamics, struggle against past beliefs, and the division Christian faith caused resonated deeply with me. Most profound for me were his revelations that despite all the hardship he went through, God made it known to him clearly that it "wasn't about you." Meaning, there is a bigger purpose in his salvation.

What an amazing testimony he gave! I listened nearly straight through, enraptured by every word. It affected me so deeply. It reminded me not to ever take a single blessing for granted. Today, I look back with awe at how much peace, blessing, success, love, and opportunity the Lord provided specifically to me, for me. For no other reason that my True Father in Heaven adores me.

I sobbed at the end of this book, so moved and humbled and grateful to have stumbled upon this book. It stayed with me a very, very long time, and I know it will continue to remain with me for many weeks and months to come. Most moving was the commentary at the end of the book by his wife, Michelle. I know she's aware of just how profoundly this book and Nabeel's story will impact the world. I so very much look forward to meeting Nabeel one day in the Kingdom of Heaven!!!

Understanding my Muslim Co-worker

I read this book to better understand and be able to work with my Muslim co-worker. It worked well for that reason. What I didn’t realize was how much it would boost my faith in Jesus and my desire to share that with others.

A life-changing book

I'll never again see Islam or Christianity the same. This is one of the most compelling cases for the Gospel I've ever experienced. Thank you Nabeel, I'm grateful for what you did for this world while you were here. Thank you David Wood, you both have opened my eyes.

Such a blessing & so sad too!

I’m recommending this wonderful book to my sisters and brothers in law! I’m very thankful to begin to understand the Muslim belief system as well as more of my own Christian beliefs. May God keep the Qureshi family close to His heart & in His mercy. My prayers will include them, especially his little girl now growing up without her precious daddy.

Wow! Just wow!

I have listened to close to 50 books on audible, and I really appreciate it when there is a good reader. My favorites are those read by the author. This is one of those books. Through Nabeel, I learned so much about the Muslim culture that I was not even aware of. I love how he hungers and thirsts after the truth and how his story is brought to life through the passion that I can hear in his voice. He has piqued my hunger too and opened my eyes to some of the mysterious things of God and the Bible that I will investigate on my own. I plan to read or listen to his other books. This book was fantastic and I loved Nabeels story and the way he went about his journey.

Good for learning about Christianity and Islam

Educational, entertaining, and a heart felt narration by the author. Good for a Muslim interested in learing about Christianity or a Christian interested in learning about Islam...or any one who wants a perspective on both in one book.
