Title: Seeking Allah, Finding, Jesus
Author: Nabeel Qureshi
This is an autobiography by the author on his quest to find Allah. He grew with parents who were very devout Muslims in America. They felt their mission was to get more converts to Islam.
As a young child he had a few questions regarding his Islamic beliefs, but was always told to accept what he was told because the teachers knew best. As he became a teen-ager and a young adult he desired to get closer to Allah and know Him more.
While in college he met a person who became his best friend. This friend was a Christian. He was challenged to find out why he believed what he believed. The more he studied the Islamic beliefs, the more it did not make sense to him. Over time it led him to look to Jesus. Through a series of events and studies he gets to know Jesus as the Messiah.
This book goes into extreme detail in the Islamic belief. It also takes a very critical look at the Christian belief. He looks at many verses in both the Bible and the Koran. He uncovers what Islam really teaches and the core beliefs that have been held for centuries.
In it is also a strong challenge to Christian believers in their mission in this world and the belief in God.
I would highly recommend every believer to read this book. It will help you to understand why Muslims believe the way they do. It will also help to understand how Muslims view Jesus and Christians as a whole.
Parts of it will be a little dry, due to the extreme details being presented, but in the end it is worth reading.
