This review is from: Crisis of Conscience (Paperback)
I was a JW for 25 years. I remember all the rumors and lies that were told about Mr. Franz and others who were disfellowshipped in the 80's. Of course I was told they were apostate and we would never want to read anything they wrote.
I have since left the organization as well. I found this book to be a very honest, straight forward account of the inner workings of the governing body of Jehovah's Witnessess.
Mr Franz in never vindictive or hateful, in fact at times I felt he still feels sorrow over the lose of friends and family and would have preferred a different outcome.
It is an excellent book for anyone who has no knowledge of the Watchtower. Mr. Franz goes into the history of the organization in such a way that anyone can easily understand it's roots and how it came to be where it is today.
I highly recommed this book to anyone. It's important not just to know what a religion teaches but how they act as well.
