Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity
About this deal
Now, the idea that religion can be proven through knowledge and logic is also dangerous because it encourages coercion. It motivates us to view other people's faith as wrong and ignorant, rather than as special and intriguing. To try to prove them wrong, to place faith on the same level as empirical knowledge gleaned by our senses. To equip the reader with facts and knowledge, showing the strength of the case for the gospel contrasted with the case for Islam. 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.
I am so excited about this third edition of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus! The incredible team at Zondervan prepared this project for months, one of many ways in which they shon their commitment to keeping the ministry of Nabeel alive. I was so looking forward to what finally pushed him over the edge and allowed him to leave Islam. But the driving issue was eventually Muhammad and the Quran itself. The challenge is that muslims are so afraid to carefully critique their culture and belief they will fight in ignorance to the bitter end. To be fair - I would do this for Jesus and the Bible as well. Growing up between Great Britain and America, Nabeel Qureshi never fit in with Western culture because of his Islamic heritage. When Qureshi meets David, a devout Christian, he finally has a friend who is more like him than anyone else because their faith is such a core element of their lives.
An inspiring autobiography, this book reveals to the reader the heart of a devout Muslim and his journey from a dissatisfactory, confusing religion towards a powerful and real saving faith in Jesus Christ. Summary: In the first two parts of the book, Nabeel describes his childhood years in Scotland and the United States. It was fascinating to get an inside look of Muslim daily life and traditions, as well as what many Muslims tend to think of Western culture. Qureshi seems to view religion as science. That is, you make a claim, others can make different claims and ultimately, you fight until one is proven true and the others are proven false. In some ways, Qureshi's journey was based on trying to force people to convert to Islam by convincing them their religions are wrong. He then meets David, who is basically doing the same but for Christianity. They discuss, Qureshi manages to bring less proof and therefore, Qureshi converts.
Leaving aside the supernatural encounters that I'm not sure what to make of. This is a great book for a Christian to use for evangelism. It covers many of the common arguments that Muslims have in relation to the Bible and other crucial aspects of the Christian faith. It also reveals a surprising level of ignorance of Muslims about their own faith due to their cultural hierarchy. We can learn from this and ensure we are patient when seeking to evangelise and not unnecessarily offending our Muslim friends. It was a beautifully-told story of a Muslim man growing up devoted to his Islamic faith and slowly converting to Christianity. The way he described the Islamic traditions, and reverence for religious figures and texts was unlike anything I have ever read about Islam. And Judaism genuinely doesn't about Paul which is fascinating considering what a role he plays for Christians.a b c d "The Quran's deadly role in inspiring Belgian slaughter: Column". USA TODAY .
