However, for once the endorsement on the back of a book rings true.
"I have seldom seen such genuine intellect combined with passion to match...truly a 'must-read' book." ~Ravi Zacharias (on the back of Seeking Allah Finding Jesus)I agree. The author, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, combines a passion and intellect that delivers a clear and important message.
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus recounts the dramatic journey of Nabeel Qureshi from a ardent Muslim to a devout Christian. Using the form of a narrative biography, we enter the world through the lens with which Dr. Qureshi sees it. First, as a faithful Muslim who loves Islam. Then, as a lay historian seeking to uncover the truth of Christianity and challenged by his friend to apply the same scrutiny to Islam. Lastly, as a man having uncovered the Truth, struggling to submit to it, but in the end turning to the Jesus of the Bible in faith.
I've read about a dozen books on Islam and if I could only recommend one it would be this one. And that is saying a lot because there are a few that I really like. Why? Because if you read this book thoughtfully, you will walk away with not only a better understanding of Islam but also a better understanding of the heart of a Muslim. You will be challenged by Dr. Qureshi's desire to seek and know the truth whatever the cost. And there is a cost. And, if you are a Christian, you will hopefully have a new desire to reach out to the Muslims around you seeking to share the love of Christ and His truth.
