NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 2015 Christian Book Award winner • Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity in this expanded edition with new bonus content and reflections. "My friend Nabeel Qureshi was courageous enough to chase down the truth with intellectual integrity, no matter the personal cost," --Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ. Providing an intimate view into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi struggled with an inner turmoil that will challenge Christians, Muslims, and all those who are interested in two of the world's greatest religions and the quest for truth. Qureshi--with great courage and intimacy--wrote this book with three major purposes in mind: To tear down walls between two of the world's major religions by giving non-Muslim readers an insider's perspective into a Muslim's heart and mind. To equip the reader with facts and knowledge, showing the strength of the case for the gospel contrasted with the case for Islam. To portray the immense inner struggle of Muslims grappling with the gospel, including all the sacrifices and doubts that rise up along the way. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is more than the memoir of a man's pursuit of answers to the most important issues of life and faith. Ultimately, it's the story about the transformative grace and mercy of the one true God. This edition has been expanded to include: A revised foreword and introduction A new afterword by apologist Mark Mittelberg and a reflection by Nabeel's wife A substantially extended epilogue that shares how Nabeel told his friend David of his decision to follow Christ, how his parents found out, and more Expert contributions from scholars and ministry leaders on each section of the book, contributions previously included only in the ebook edition An appendix with a topical table of contents (for teaching from Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus) An appendix tackling the objection that Ahmadi Muslims--the Islamic movement that Qureshi was raised in--are not true Muslims And a sneak peek prologue from Nabeel's book, No God but One: Allah or Jesus?

The average person today may hold to a wide variety of beliefs about religion and Christianity, including: Good people go to heaven; bad people end up in hell. All religions are basically the same. It's about rules. It's about controlling people. No religion can be the only way to God or spirituality. In short, religion is an area of much confusion. The Searching for God Study Guide by Holly Lazzaro, a companion to the Searching for God Video Study featuring a number of top Christian thinkers and apologists, leads participants into exploring questions such as: What is Christianity? What are some of the ideas that have influenced the way people think about it? Is there any evidence for God? Most significantly, the Searching for God Study Guide examines the central event in the Christian story, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is a historical claim, testable by evidence. So how credible is it? Lazzaro leads participants into reflecting more deeply on the insights provided in the video study by scholars such as Lee Strobel, William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, J. Warner Wallace, Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Copan, and many more.

Today people are searching for truth in a world embroiled by contradiction, misinformation and blatant lies that have created confusion, division and mistrust in society. The fear generated through terrorism and the handling of the global covid 19 pandemic have many questioning the future of mankind and turning to God for answers. For those genuinely seeking redemption through Jesus Christ, the tarnished reputation of the established Christian church offers little clarity in the path to salvation and serves as a living testimony to the fallen state of man. Where does one begin to sort through the soupy mess that religion has become and discover the true meaning of Christianity? In a revealing and illuminating examination of scripture, history and the authentic Christian message, Clinton Bezan dispels the fallacies and half truths propagated through Christian history by errant religious dogma and traditions. There is a distinct paradox that organized religion fails to recognize in its efforts to maintain growth and influence in a civilization that is increasingly devoid of moral legitimacy and is struggling to maintain its sense of purpose amid the volatile and fluid post truth culture. It is only by returning to the basic premise of faith in Christ that there is hope for peace and purpose in the Christian life.
