Our current book is “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” by Nabeel Qureshi. The author tells a powerful story about the clash between his passion for Islam and his growing discovery, almost against his will, of the power of Christianity and the peace he eventually found in Jesus Christ. Our next meeting will be in the church library on November 12th at 11:15a, following second service.
