He writes in the introductory paragraph, "In its many publications (the Watchtower Society) constantly quotes authorities on various subjects in support of whatever subject is being discussed. Often the Watchtower refers to its earlier publications in an effort to convey consistency. The purpose of this study is not to examine the validity of any certain doctrine, but to determine if statements utilized by the Society are in harmony with what the quoted authors contextually intended."
Here are some quotations from the booklet:
"This testimony (against the New World Translation) is the Watchtower's death knell provided by the only scholar, alive today, quoted (or misquoted) by the Watchtower Society, 'and still able to defend himself.' Professor Mantey ... is merely speaking out against an obvious evil, as if to say, 'It's your choice not to believe my personal views; but don't lie about and misrepresent what I have said.' The Watchtower Society stands guilty and without excuse." (Pg. 14)
"The New World Translaton renders John 8:58, 'Before Abraham came into existence, I have been.' In the 1950 edition there appears a footnote ... '...in the perfect indefinite tense...' Since then it has been brought to the 'Society's' attention that there is no perfect indefinite tense in the Greek language." (Pg. 17)
"As stated earlier, Pastor (Charles) Russell was considered to be the 'faithful and wise servant.' In a recent 1973 publication the Watchtower set forth what they felt was conclusive evidence that Russell never claimed to be 'that servant,' despite opinions of that nature held by some of his associates..." (Pg. 26)
"In reviewing the above subjects one finds that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society thinks nothing of misquoting and misrepresenting historians who in context would refute their all-important 607 B.C. date for the overthrowing of Zedekiah." (Pg. 47)
