If you read one book on Islam read "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus". Nabeel Qureshi presents what Muslim's believe, and portrays the deep faith and devotion of peaceful Muslims. He depicts the beauty of Islam at its best, and how Islam's best falls short of meeting mankinds deepest needs. He demonstrates truths that Islam has in common with Christianity, and the deep divide between the faiths which cannot be bridged. He compares Islamic teachings on Taueed, Justice, and the Quran with Christian teachings on the Trinity, Redemption, and the Bible. He contrasts the prophet Muhammad with Jesus the Son of God. All of this and more is taught through the story of Nabeel's life and search for God. Everyone who wants to love, understand, and witness to Muslim's needs to read this book and especially the chapter "The Cost of Embracing the Cross". I read, I wept and then I prayed.
A most critical book for every Christian to read right now
April 15, 2015
This book was critical in explaining Islam to me and what they believe. Also, it is one of the best apologetic books, next to "The Case For Christ" for the average Christian. His writing made me sit up and wake up!! I caught myself wondering if I was ready to defend the Christian faith as David was. For our current times, it is a very important book!!
A Must Read for All Muslims and Christians, and all seeking the truth
April 15, 2015
The author relates his life experiences in a vulnerable and concise manner that will make you feel like he is your personal friend and mentor. His love for people is profound, and his love for the truth is unparalleled. I also was privileged to hear him speak and answer many questions impromptu. He is the real deal. I read this book in 3 days, with the last 2/3 of it read from 1-5AM, in which I was not aware of the time that went by, nor that I was quite cold physically. His true story is that compelling. I have such a better understanding of my own faith as a Christian, as well as a clearer understanding for Muslims and their motivations. Wouldn't you like to know more about what motivates the Muslims in both the East and the West? And, yes, it is a superb gift.
