Format: Paperback
All in all, I was disappointed in this book. I left the religion after 45 years so I know the teachings well. Many of David Reed's comments on the verses were not proven with enough conviction that you could actually answer a Witness with his thoughts.

He has a lot of opinions, but without biblical backing the Witnesses would not even question their beliefs. I have trouble believing he was ever a devout Witness.

All of us have opinions, but without scriptural support, a Witness would not listen.

I believe the books by Ray Franz have much more force since he was on their Governing Body and wrote much of the literature. I really enjoyed his two books and believe what he said.

Format: Paperback
David Reed's book is a powerful tool in the hands of Bible believers who need to know what to say to a Jehovah's Witness who is bent on pushing the Watchtower's interpretation of Scripture. Mr. Reed exposes the New World Translation of the Bible as a perversion in a short, but concise chapter that every Christian should read. Another chapter gives a brief but crystal clear summation of the Watchtower's interpretation of various doctrines and eschatological events. The real beauty of Mr. Reed's book is his ability to reveal what the witnesses will say when they are on my front porch, and what my response will be if I am to reach them for Christ. I was glad that I had I read it when I was visited last Saturday Morning by some people from the local kingdom hall. Mr. Reed's book is simple to read yet extremely informative.

I thought I should inform people looking for contorversial literature on Jehovah's Witnesses that a reviewer who claims to be "A Reader" from America, or various cities or states, is really a JW. He or she claims to be have been investigating the Jehovah's Witness cult, then was given these books. Well, this person has put pretty much the same review for almost all controversial literature on JWs on this site, and many other online sites. This person has not read all these books.

Format: Paperback
This book begins with a short introduction. It then has short chapters outlining the basic teachings of the Watchtower and critiquing the Watchtower's "New World Translation." Then the bulk of the book is an index of verses from both the Old and New Testaments that are relevant to JWs. Then the last three chapters contain a short outline of Watchtower history, "Techniques for Sharing the Gospel with Jehovah's Witnesses," and Reed's testimony of how he came out of the Watchtower.
The verse-by-verse evaluations are excellent. The cover both verses JWs cite that they claim support their doctrines and verses showing that their doctrines are false. For the former, Reed gives a concise explanation of how the JWs are misusing the verse. For the latter, Reed explains what doctrine of the Watchtower the verse refutes and why.
This is a very helpful resource to have around when a person gets "stumped" by something a JW says. He or she can look up the verse in this book and be prepared for the next time. And the JW, if he or she is open enough to listen, can see what "the other side" has to say about important verses.
The opening and closing short chapters also contain helpful information. But given their brevity they do not provide a lot of detail. For further study on such subjects one would have to consult other books. But Reed's testimony is very interesting.
Reed's companion book "Answering Jehovah's Witnesses: Subject by Subject," would be another helpful resource to have around. It provides further details on subjects addressed in this book. And for additional Biblical study on subjects relevant to JWs, consult my book "Scripture Workbook: For Personal Bible Study and Teaching the Bible." It contains three chapters on the Trinity and one on various other Watchtower teachings.

20 of 26 people found the following review helpful By God's child on February 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
I grew up a Jehovah's Witness. At 17 years old, I began searching for the love of God which I had not yet found. Asking Jesus to live in your heart is the only way to truly understand what the Holy Spirit reveals to us through the Bible. I found this book extremely helpful to understand scriptures that had been twisted and that I had been brainwashed to believe. This is a great book that will aide you in coming to your own conclusion on what the Bible says, not what the Watchtower Society wants you to believe it says.

Format: Paperback
David Reed, a former Jehovah's Witness elder, did a wonderful job writing this book in an extremely easy to read and follow manner. Not only is it informative and very helpful, this book does not simply tear down the JW's beliefs. This is not a book that just trashes someone else's beliefs.

One of the excellent points made in the introduction of this book is worth mentioning here. As Christians, we send millions of people to the most distant destitute countries where they learn the most difficult languages all in order to lead the lost to Christ. If we are willing to do all of that long-distance evangelism, shouldn't we also spend as much time and effort in reaching the lost and misguided in our own communities?

An interesting fact to know in the beginning is that the JW's use a translation of the Bible that has been created and printed by their headquarters, Watchtower, in Brooklyn, NY. This translation is used by their organization so their followers do not have to go to much effort to take out of context and distort the Scriptures; the work has already been done for them by Watchtower. Talk about cencorship! Their translation, New World Translation, also adds and removes words and entire verses at will to support their beliefs.

One of the best parts of this book is that it guides you verse by verse through a conversation with JW's, using their own translation. Yes, that's right, this book lets you learn how to disprove their beliefs while letting them use their own distorted translation of God's Word. That's pretty impressive!

You have to understand that JW's spend countless hours studying and preparing for their encounters with us at our doors. It's not that they are extremely knowledgeable, it's that they have prepared!
