I have never done a book review on my blog before but its been a long time since a book has impacted me so deeply.
I have no affiliation with RZIM or Zondervan or anyone related to this book, I simply wanted to read this book since I heard it had been released through RZIM (because I follow them on Twitter ha ha!)
This book gave me insight to the mulsim culture that is completely intertwined with Islam religion. It is a lovely heart-warming and yet heart-wrenching story of a young man who grew up in a very close-knit loving family and who was taught to love God and to love scripture (the Quran) who searches for the truth. But his search for the truth is out of love for God and his own Islamic faith.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but in the end, it was a true friendship that led him on the path to finding Jesus.
I have so much love and compassion for Muslims now because of this book and Nabeel’s insight into his culture has also helped me see more clearly into the culture of my own inter-racial marriage.
I think if I met Nabeel in person, I would want to just give him a big hug, for the good sweet son that he is and for the courage it took to step out in faith.
I will be recommending this book to everyone I know.
Seeking Allah Finding Jesus, by Nabeel Qureshi
I bought it from Chapters/ Indigo in Canada, but it can also be purchased from Amazon and other online sources.
As of July 2014, I was able to access bonus content from RZIM here.
from someone who is a fiction lover, and not really into biographies, or true stories, this was one of the best books I have ever read – HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
