Publisher's Summary

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.

The New York Times best-selling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus has been expanded to include:

  • A revised foreword
  • A new afterword by Mark Mittelberg and reflection by Nabeel's wife
  • An audiobook exclusive conversation between Nabeel and his close friend and roommate David Wood, discussing Nabeel's decision to follow Christ, how his parents found out, and much more
  • Expert contributions from scholars and ministry leaders on each section of the audiobook included in the audiobook companion PDF download, contributions previously included only in the ebook edition
  • An appendix included in the audiobook companion PDF download tackling the objection that Ahmadi Muslims are not true Muslims

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.

4 those that seek after truth, with no reservation

Love this book, those that are determined to seek truth even when it may cost them everything they hold dear. And for those that never waver from the task that Jesus has put before us.

Learning experience.

I learned more about the Muslim religion than I ever knew before. Loved the audio book and would highly recommend it. Loved listening to Nabeel Qureshis voice as he talked about his his struggles with Christianity and final conversion. Very good book.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

Incredible Profound Testimony

There are testimonies, and then there are TESTIMONIES. Mr. Qureshi’s pursuit of truth, faith and love should serve as an inspiration to us all. Read it. Listen to Mr. Qureshi tell you his difficult story and you will undoubtedly be moved.

Riveting!

So helpful in understanding the Muslim faith. Nabeel's training from childhood to adult, so intense, and all consuming.
Helps me understand their passion and helps me as a Christian to understand their view of Christians. If someone like Nabeel can be convinced, Jesus is the true Messiah, every believer in Jesus needs to read this and know how to defend their faith.

God’s infinite ability to change lives!

Tremendous testimony to God’s love for us. His relentless desire for us to know Him. Nabeel is gifted in his ability to give us insight into why and how many in Islam think and believe. I was lovingly enlightened and am so thankful for this brothers testimony as well as the faith and obedience of David Wood, his dear friend.
God richly bless them both. Upon hearing of Nabeel going to be with the Lord, I wept as if I had lost a dear brother, yet I had never met or known him personally.
