Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus
In the Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus course, author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi introduces students to effective strategies for engaging Muslims in spiritual discussions.
Incorporating the powerful story and arguments he shared in his book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi in this course takes students deeper into apologetics and evangelism among Muslims. In eight lessons, he explores Muslim culture, the most common Muslim objections to Christianity, and the core doctrines upon which Islam stands or falls.
Compassionate and clear, the Seeking Allah Finding Jesus course will be a useful training tool for pastors, outreach leaders, and any believers wanting to winsomely engage Muslims in spiritual conversations.
SPECIAL NOTE: Because the online content of this particular course is half that of a normal three credit course, additional assignments and testing will be required to increase the credit value of this course. These requirements will be outlined more fully in the syllabus for this course; however, most additional assignments, and testing will focus on No God but One: Allah or Jesus?, Nabeel Qureshi's sequel to Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity.
By completing this course, you'll gain:
- a better understanding of Muslim history, culture, and beliefs
- insight into the core areas of disagreement between Christian and Muslim teachings
- tools for winsomely presenting the case for Jesus and the Christian faith to Muslims
- encouragement in your own faith and a deeper compassion for those who don’t know Jesus as the Savior who takes away their sins
- confidence in your growing knowledge developed through personalized review sessions and unit assessments
