Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus
On September 17 & 18, Christ Community services featured an exclusive interview with bestselling author and former Muslim Dr. Nabeel Qureshi during weekend services.
Here's our exclusive interview:
Raised as a devout Muslim in the United States, Nabeel grew up studying Islamic apologetics with his family and engaging Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian, the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam. Nabeel chronicled his resulting journey in his first book,The New York Times bestselling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.
He went on to write Answering Jihad—a balanced examination of jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism--and his latest release, No God But One—Allah or Jesus?
About two weeks before our planned interview in the Chicago suburbs, Nabeel announced he had advanced stomach cancer and the prognosis was dire. He could no longer travel due to treatment and so we went to him.
Nabeel is a global speaker and holds degrees in medicine (Eastern Virginia Medical School), Christian apologetics (Biola University), and religion (Duke University). Nabeel is pursuing a doctorate in New Testament studies at Oxford University. He has lectured to students at more than 100 universities and participated in 18 moderated, public debates around North America, Europe, and Asia.
