I have read this with "How to Answer Jehovah's Witnesses" by Dr. Robert Morey and "How to Answer Jehovah's Witnesses verse by verse" by David A. Reed. If the previous Jehovah Witness had been dealing with a Christian who has studied the Trinity in depth he would have found that his arguments would not have worked trying to compare Moses and others in the Bible who where called "gods" in the sense that they where speaking in the name of God or had the power of life and death as the Judges in the Old Testament or in reference to false gods or angels speaking in behalf of God. There is never any time in the Bible that we are to put our total faith and refuge in any of the above mentioned and are forbidden to worship them but in Psalm 2:12 we are supposed to do this to the Son. In Isaiah 6:5 it said that Isaiah saw Jehovah (the 4 letter name of God YHWH is used in Isaiah 6:5)and it said in John 12:39-41 that Isaiah saw Jesus glory (it should aslo be noticed the angels where worshipping Jehovah in Isaiah 6:1-5. I could go on for about 38 pages and prove the point and refute all the verses they use but it would not change their mind because they believe the Watchtower is inspired by angelic direction as stated:
"The scroll was doubtless delivered to Ezekiel by the hand of one of the cherubs in the vision. This would indicate that Jehovah's witnesses today make their declaration of the good news of the Kingdom under angelic direction and support (Rev. 14:6, 7; Matt. 25:31, 32) And since no word or work of Jehovah can fall, for he is God Almighty, the nations will see the fulfillment of what these witnesses say as directed from heaven. Yes, the time must come shortly that the nations will have to know that really a "prophet" of Jehovah was among them." (Watchtower April 1, 1972 pg.

At one time, Reed was elder in the Watchtower. After leaving the Watchtower he began a ministry to JWs that has been operating for quite a few years now. His newsletter was one of the first sources I came across when studying about JWs.
In this book, Reed documents the teachings of the Watchtower using quotes and photocopies from their own literature. So it hard for a JW to claim that this book misrepresent their teachings.
Each of these subjects have a bearing on the authority of the Watchtower. If the Watchtower is wrong on any one of these then it cannot be "God's Channel of Communication" as it claims. And Reed does a throughout job of showing that the Watchtower is in fact wrong on subject after subject. And for more Biblical study one these subjects, consult my "Scripture Workbook: For Personal Bible Study and Teaching the Bible." It includes three chapters on the Trinity and one on various other Watchtower teachings.

The book Answering Jehovah's Witnesses: Subject by Subject is written by author David A. Reed. Mr. Reed is a former Jehovah's Witness who was open to seeking the truth and because of his openness, came to understand the reality of how the cult operates. He describes how it was the cult's constant elevation of the organization above scripture that drove him to start questioning their authority. He uses his experience as a Jehovah's Witness in this work to expose both the corruption of the organization as well as its doctrinal fallacies. In addition, he reminds the reader throughout the book how to talk with Jehovah's Witnesses and which topics to start with. He suggests that we work with their training and not against it. He informs us to start by asking them questions about the information and to have them explain the answers. He states that the worst way to approach them is in a confrontational manner. Previous to this work, Mr. Reed produced a book with a similar title, Jehovah's Witnesses Answered Verse by Verse in which Scripture passages are used as proof-texts for Jehovah's Witnesses belief. In addition to this, he edits for a publication on Jehovah's Witnesses' beliefs titled Comments from the Friends. He is president of Gospel Truth Ministries, Inc. Other works include the Index of Watchtower Errors and Jehovah's Witness Literature: A Critical Guide to Watchtower Publications.

The author's purpose for this book is to offer a response to a change in Jehovah's Witnesses behavior. Today's Jehovah's Witness seems, according to the author, not as well versed in scripture as the older Witnesses. They instead seem to be apt to rely on the authority of the organization more than scripture.

I had questions for personal reasons concerning family members involved with this ministry, the Jehovah's Witnesses. I wanted to know more about it because of my personal convictions that Christianity is my choice of relations and the concerns about the deity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are differences of opinion and I was concerned about Scripture that says, "that no one gets to the father but through the son ". My brothers salvation is important to me and I wanted to know if it were possible to share with them about Christ. I was not comfortable believing that Christ was the Archangel Michael. This book has helped me to better understand their belief system which convinces me that they have been brainwashed by those who teach them what they should think, not what the Scriptures teach about Jesus Christ.
