|About the Book|
This book has been referred to as a brilliant guide. It is an honest, thought provoking examination of Jehovahs Witnesses and the Watchtower Society- providing a fascinating insight into their lifestyle and beliefs. Their changing teachings, claims, and predictions are examined. How Jehovahs Witnesses are instructed to view outsiders, and what membership requires is explained along with the methods used to draw people into this religion. As a member I was too narrow-minded to consider the possibility that I could be wrong and have since learned humility. Before people make a major purchase, they will usually read independent reviews or talk with others who have made the same investment. Company representatives are often economical with the truth. Before you invest your lifes resources in the Watchtower Societys concept of truth, independent research is essential. The cost of leaving can be high. I have tried to show that the pursuit of truth and understanding need not include living in fear of death at Armageddon, when ones best fails to meet the requirements of the Watchtower Society. We should be free from such fear and pressure to explore with an open mind. It is for you alone to come to your own conclusions as to what constitutes truth. There is no shame in being unable to reach a definite conclusion. Perhaps our journey through life is a search without end. Thoughtful disagreement is essential to progress. As we learn we grow and change. We should be free from fear and pressure to pursue truth with an open mind. If my writings help to promote such freedom and assist you in your search for truth, then my years spent as a Jehovahs Witness shall not have been wasted. It is my hope that you will one day include me among those who have helped you in your journey through life.
