Nabeel Qureshi revealed that he recently resigned from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries because of his battle with an advanced stage of stomach cancer. 

In a Facebook post, Qureshi said that he is going to pursue both medical and miraculous healing and added that he is "relying on God and the fact that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine."

"In the past few days my spirits have soared and sank as I pursue the Lord's will and consider what the future might look like, but never once have I doubted this: that Jesus is Lord, His blood has paid my ransom, and by His wounds I am healed," he said.

Although Qureshi has cancelled most of his speaking events, he will continue to communicate with the public through his blogs and vlogs about his journey with cancer. He asked his friends and family to pray for his healing.

Christian apologist James White was one of the first to post a comment: "A dark providence my dear brother. I am so sorry to hear this. May the Lord draw near and hold you close as you go through this refining time."

Qureshi grew up as an Ahmadi Muslim. He converted to Christianity after years of discussing religion with his friend David Wood. He continued studying Christianity and Islam for several years. He acquired a masters degree in Christian apologetics from Biola University and a masters degree in religion from Duke University.

Qureshi recently released his new book "No God But One: Allah or Jesus?" to shed light on the historical inconsistencies of the claims about Muhammad and the Quran.

He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus," which tells the story of his conversion from Islam to Christianity. It won the Christian Book Awards for "Best New Author" and "Best Nonfiction."
