Were Early Muslims Persecuted? (with Nabeel Qureshi)

UTR #45


This question relates to the nature of Muhammad’s violence, such as the rationale for the caravan raids and early Islamic wars. Nabeel is a former Muslim and both he and his father considered themselves apologists for Islam prior to his conversion.  Nabeel’s book – Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus – goes through his journey to Christ and all of the intellectual arguments and emotional struggles he encountered. Currently, he’s in England working on his PHD with a New Testament emphasis.

Special Guest: Nabeel Qureshi, speaker for Ravi Zacharias Ministries

Quran’s Textual History (with Nabeel Qureshi)

UTR #44


Most Muslims believe the Qur’anic manuscripts have been so well preserved that there are no meaningful textual variants. We explore this claim misunderstanding with a former Muslim and current Christian apologist, Nabeel Qureshi. Nabeel’s book and audio book – Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus – are outstanding; nothing better has been written to reach devout and thinking Muslims in the West.

Special Guest: Nabeel Qureshi (author, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus)
