Can You Trust Nabeel Qureshi, author of 'Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus'?

The new poster boy of Christian evangelism to Muslims is Dr Nabeel Qureshi. One can clearly see why Dr Ravi Zaccharias snapped him up for RZIM. I mean, the chap is a medical doctor trained in Christian apologetics, claims to be an exMuslim, comes armed with a story mentioning dreams (fundamentalist Christian audiences lap them up) and intellectual inquiry.

However, the Christian should be asking can they trust Nabeel Qureshi. Sure Nabeel comes over as a sincere chap (a prerequisite to become one of the poster boys of Christian evangelism) but does he really care about scholarship, accuracy of information, truth and intellectual inquiry or is he just trying to catch sheep for his flock and/or build a name for himself?

Have a look in the Nabeel Qureshi section, here you will find Nabeel Qureshi to be unreliable when talking about Islam, unscrupulous when discussing Islam and perhaps even outright dishonest. Now there are, at the time of writing roughly 20 posts about Nabeel Qureshi which should be of interest for anybody conusiming Nabeel Qureshi's new book, 'Seeking Alla, Finding Jesus' as well as his lectures and what have you. Scroll down and view the older posts to see all of them:

So once you've had a gander at all of them please feel free to email me your thoughts. If you've read his book feel free to email me as well.

Christians are Having Dreams and Becoming Muslims:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim. Now is the time.

Bassam Zawadi wrote this about Nabeel Qureshi:

Given that Nabeel used to be an ex-Ahmadi, he is trying really hard to prove to everyone that Ahmadis are in fact considered Muslims. Why is that something so important to Nabeel? The answer is quite obvious. It is because Nabeel is now trying to build a name for himself amongst evangelical apologists/polemicists that he is some sort of expert on Islam (or on his way to be one) and telling people that he used to be an ex-Muslim gives him more credibility. So Nabeel is actually seeking to be labeled as an apostate from Islam, when he in reality isn't one. In the eyes of Muslims, Nabeel merely transferred from one type of kufr to another. As a matter of fact, it could even be argued that Nabeel actually made a gradual "improvement" in his shift to Christianity, since Christians are at least considered as "people of the book" and their status is above that of the rest of kuffar.
