TTATT

The Truth About the Truth -- Tami Dickerson

What happens when a born and bred Jehovah's Witness discovers the truth about her religion and its leaders? This book details my personal experience of being born and raised as a Jehovah's Witness and what it was like to live the lifestyle, abide by the doctrines, and the emotional hardships involved in awakening to, and leaving the sect. It also includes a series of appendices covering unique Jehovah's Witness doctrines. This book opens the obscure world of the Jehovah's Witnesses to the general public and reveals information that non-members wouldn't know. I'm not belittling the average Jehovah's Witness who comes knocking on your door, for they are as misled by their leaders as I was. I'm simply exposing the leadership's reasoning and techniques that keep the membership in the dark. I decided to write this book so that potential converts can know exactly what they're getting themselves into, and for others to understand the Jehovah's Witness mindset when reaching out to them.

JWUN

Jehovah's Witnesses and the United Nations, How the Watchtower Society Fooled Millions -- Tami Dickerson

In 1992 the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society registered as a Non-governmental Organization in association with the United Nations. In doing so they agreed to support the United Nations and its Charter, and agreed to publish educational information regarding United Nations programmes. This, in spite of the fact that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society teaches that the United Nations is the political puppet of Satan. In 2001 this association was publicly outed by a British news company. In response, the Watchtower Society hastily canceled their association with the United Nations and provided distorted information to their Jehovah's Witness members in order to cover their hyposcrisy and deceit. Tami Dickerson presents the absolute truth of the matter, uncovering the clever tactics the Watchtower Society used for keeping the Jehovah's Witness membership in the dark, and the straight evidence that reveals the Watchtower Society's corruption.

 

 

Captives

Captives of a Concept --Don Cameron

Don Cameron was once a Jehovah's Witness elder. This book helps the reader to understand the illusionary concept that holds millions of Jehovah's Witnesses captive by controlling how they think and act without them realizing it. The concept that still holds millions of Jehovah's Witnesses captive is their belief that the Watchtower Society is God's chosen organization to teach them what he wants them to believe; that all of God's directions to mankind comes through this one 'channel of communication.'" Don Cameron writes in a very authoritative style, with references listed for all important assertions. As such, Captives of a Concept is quite a scholarly work. Cameron begins to unravel the Watchtower Society by showing that their own interpretation of Matthew 24:45-47 (which is supposed to authorize the Watchtower Society as God's organization) does not correspond with the organization's history.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GentileTimes

The Gentile Times Reconsidered -- Carl O. Jonsson

"The Gentile Times Reconsidered" is the results of an exhaustive investigation into the historical, archaeological, and biblical evidence which the Watchtower Society cites in support of their date of 1914 for Christ's second coming. About half of the book deals with archaeology and history; the other half with Jehovah's Witness theology. This book establishes, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the Watchtower Society's doctrine on this matter is seriously flawed.

As an aside, we'd also like to point out that the Watchtower Society recently published study article, again trying to push this doctrine (The Watchtower magazine, October 1, 2011 and November 1, 2011). Jonsson wrote a rebuttal to these articles, which can be read here in PDF format.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crisis

Crisis of Conscience -- Ray Franz

The late Ray Franz served as a member of the Governing Body (the Jehovah's Witness head leadership) from 1971 until 1980. Perhaps the real strength and value of the book is its role as a study of the internal workings of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society during the presidencies of Nathan H. Knorr and Frederick Franz between 1950 and 1981. The internal politics and power-brokering that went on during that time would set the shape of the Watchtower’s leadership for the next half-century. The revelations about how the Society really works at the headquarters level will make any sincere observer wonder how Jehovah God and Jesus Christ could possibly want to have anything to with such an organization.This book is a penetrating view of a religion's supreme council and their dramatic power over human lives.
