Worth reading – Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus

In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, former devout Muslim Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic
journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with the friendships, investigations, and dreams and visions he encountered along the way.
Many Westerners are confused about Islam, somewhat fearful of Muslims, or simply uninformed about the relationship between the Islamic and Christian faiths.

In turn, many Muslims are hindered by cultural, intellectual, and theological barriers from under-standing, or even rightly hearing, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Throughout his story Qureshi provides a compassionate yet powerful apologetic for Christianity over Islam, with an emphasis on relationships and love.

Worth reading – Islamic Terrorist

Don’t miss the secondary fine-print title of this book – ‘Why they hate us and how we can change their minds.’  This book is about the why behind Islamic terrorism.

The author, Mark A. Gabriel, PhD, grew up as a devout Muslim in Egypt, earned a doctorate in Islamic history and culture and taught at Al-Azhir University, Cairo, the most prestigious Islamic University in the world.

As a practicing Christian for more than a decade, he has earned a masters degree in world religions and a PhD in Christian education.  In this book, he identifies the five pillars of radical philosophy – the bedrock beliefs that cut through all radical writings. Dr. Gabriel uses the writings of Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and others to show how terrorists justify their actions through the Quran, the life of Muhammad and Islamic history.

The struggle against terrorism may seem to be at a stalemate, but there is hope for the future.

What kind of prophet was Jesus?  Was he the Messiah?
How are God and Jesus related?  Can they both be God?
The gospel – how could God dishonor his Son by letting him die horribly?
Aren’t the Bible’s accounts of Jesus corrupt?

WORTH READING …

You may have been surprised to read in last month’s newsletter about Jesus appearing to ‘Ai’shah’ and saving her. This phenomena is now so common, particularly in Muslim countries, that books like ‘Dreams and Visions’ have been written about it.
