Summary

From New York Times best-selling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi comes this personal, challenging, and respectful answer to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.

San Bernardino was the most lethal terror attack on American soil since 9/11, and it came on the heels of a coordinated assault on Paris. There is no question that innocents were slaughtered in the name of Allah and in the way of jihad, but do the terrorists' actions actually reflect the religion of Islam? The answer to this question is more pressing than ever as waves of Muslim refugees arrive in the West, seeking shelter from the violent ideology of ISIS.

Setting aside speculations and competing voices, what really is jihad? How are we to understand jihad in relation to our Muslim neighbors and friends? Why is there such a surge of Islamist terrorism in the world today, and how are we to respond?

In Answering Jihad, best-selling author Nabeel Qureshi (Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus) answers these questions from the perspective of a former Muslim who is deeply concerned for both his Muslim family and his American homeland.

Short concise and highly accessible.

One of the best short introductions to the foundational role of violent Jihad in Islam that I've found. Concise, comprehensive, nuanced and compassionate. Highly recommended.

Very informative and food for reflection

Well presented and heartfelt concern for the dichotomy faced by many Muslims regarding the out working of their faith in the current differing Islamic world climates.

Exceptional teaching and full of information!

Unlike 'Seeking Allah, finding Jesus' this work is less a personal testimony and more an in-depth study of the origin and evolution of Islam. Another book I will read at least twice!

Great insight into a controversial subject

The author provided great balance between history and modern application. I learned several things that will help me to lovingly interact with a population that is expectedly diverse even though they may at first appear to be radically different--at times even dangerous. The author tactfully works through some key concerns.

Great explanations to many tough questions

The book written by Dr. Quereshi is very helpful for a Christian to understand the Islamic faith and the evil of Islamic terrorism. It's not filled with politically charged rhetoric but rather facts from a informed and educated former Muslim who understands being a Muslim, especially in the West. Give this book your time if you want to understand truth of Islam in conjunction with what we see in our world today with the problem radical Islam.

Real Islam Revealed

In this book the author serves to present the real theology, history, and mission of Islam. Based on historical evidence, Islamic texts- of which are mostly available in Arabic but have been translated - the author gives light to events seen in today's headlines and past wars. A must read

Brilliantly written - Compassionately delivered

What made the experience of listening to Answering Jihad the most enjoyable?

Dr. Quereshi is fast becoming one of my favorite new authors. His personal insight on the subject of Islam is unparalleled. The pain he lives through daily resulting from his choice to follow Christ is an example for all believers. I cannot recommend his works highly enough .

If you are a Christian, and you truly care about ALL people, then you must pray for and love muslim people. Dr. Quereshi offers a lens into the world of islam that will open your eyes to how to love a significant number of people who are devout, but not yet following Christ.

Have you listened to any of Nabeel Qureshi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed his first book more, but likely since it was more of his personal testimony on coming to Christ.

Thought provoking

Quereshi presents clear and convincing arguments for why all of us must reevaluate the way we view and behave toward Muslims, and Islam as a whole. This is a much needed voice of love and reason in the volatile cultural climate we find ourselves in today.

The best answer

Nabel Qureshi was once a strong Muslim who came to the Lord after many years of friendship and discussion with a friend and thorough consideration. He knows what he's talking about here. He's an excellent narrator. Sadly, this excellent apologist died of cancer a few years ago.

firsthand experience with doctoral wisdom

Nabeel Qureshi does a fantastic job of assessing Islam and reconciling his Muslim upbringing with his Christian faith. Answering questions that are frequently asked, Qureshi makes clear distinctions between what is Islam and what is Christianity, what is jihad, and what are the foundations of Islam. Great book.
