Who are the Jehovah's Witnesses? Many of us have seen or been visited by folks calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses. Most of us have slammed the door in the faces of these hard working young men and women as they try to share their gospel with us. I, however, use to delight in conversation with such folks as these, not to be argumentative but to try and understand their doctrine. Of course, when you speak to the Jehovah's Witnesses, you always get the same watered down doctrine that they publicize such as, "Jesus Christ didn't agree with the view that there are many religions, many roads, all leading to salvation. Rather, he said: 'Narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it.' (Matthew 7:14) Jehovah's Witnesses believe that they've found that road. Otherwise, they'd look for another religion." literally believe theirs is the only religion, and as we venture through the history to see how they became what they are today, you can decide for yourself is being a Jehovah's Witness is the only path to salvation.

Lots of things in this book I already knew, other things are very interesting to learn. All in all short book but a good listen.

Not a fair overview
I have had the good fortune of being friends with some Jehovah's Witnesses. I got the book to see if I perhaps was missing something in my understanding of the faith. This book mocked and gave no credibility to some of the original organizers of this group. This is sad and unfair.
Yes, they do not believe in the trinity- but unlike many faiths- they walk their talk.
They are some of the most genuine caring and supportive people at know.
Who truly knows what happens after our time ends on earth, but I'd rather spend that time with Jehovah's Witnesses who are genuinely caring and supportive to all they meet; than the many who praise god one hour a week, and live a hypocrisy the rest of the week.
Too bad this book only critiqued the founding organizers, and did not look at the many positive and loving acts the JW organization does today, throughout the world.
