Our very own Alyssa Sampson has written an excellent book review for “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” written by Nabeel Qureshi. It’s an interesting book that looks at the journey a Muslim person took to prove Islam and ended up converting to Christianity.
Given ABC’s location in such a diverse neighbourhood, it’s important that we have a good understanding of the many different faiths that surround us, not from fear but from understanding and love.
Here’s an excerpt of her review:
I was intrigued to read this book since we live in such a diverse neighbourhood. I know Muslims as kind, hospitable people who share many aspects of faith with me, but I also know there is a world of difference that separates our cultures and our religion, and I was eager to learn more. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is Nabeel Qureshi’s account of his journey from faith in Islam to faith in Jesus Christ, and it is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Qureshi is a fantastic storyteller who brings his devout Muslim upbringing to life, setting the backdrop to understand his sincere and fervent adherence to Islam, which leads him to investigate the evidence for both Christian and Muslim beliefs in an effort to convert his Christian friend to Islam.
