When Nabeel Qureshi, raised in a devout Muslim home, begins to question his faith and inquire into Christianity, he is thrown into an intense spiritual struggle. Friendships with several Christians provide Qureshi with the opportunity to examine both Christian and Islamic apologetics. Through study and discussion, he realizes he can no longer embrace the faith of his ancestors, yet he hesitates to become a Christian.
Later God answers his prayers for direction through a vision and dreams, and, at great personal cost, he submits to Jesus as his Lord.
Qureshi wrotehis memoir to break down barriers by giving non-Muslim readers an insider’s perspective into the hearts and minds of Muslims; to equip readers with knowledge, “showing the strength of the case for the gospel in contrast with the case for Islam”; and to portray the intense struggles Muslims face when they consider Christianity and finally become Christians.
