5 Stars Out Of 5
Fantastic quick reference overview
April 23, 2014
I've had countless conversations with folks from the local Kingdom Hall on my doorstep, in my front room and on my front porch over the years. There are many great books out there that have helped me interact with the Witnesses in a Biblical way. There are also books with stories of how JW's came to truly know Christ and had their eyes opened to the truth of the Biblical Gospel through the grace and patience of real Jesus followers.
Rose Publishing has taken the best of both of these worlds: The biblical facts to refute the errors of the Watchtower and the gracious principles that should govern our engagement with those who come knocking on our doors Saturday mornings - and combined them into one dynamite quick-reference guide in this beautifully produced 10 Questions and Answers on Jehovah's Witnesses pamphlet.
I truly wish that I had this guide 10 years ago when I started working with the Witnesses that would faithfully come to our house each week. It provides a perfect comparison between what the Watchtower believes and teaches and what the Bible actually says. But that's not all. It also has a great "You should also know" section on almost every page with very helpful information to be aware of about the history of the Watchtower and it's deviation from Biblical doctrine.
But the best part of this pamphlet is the Tips for Talking with Jehovah's Witnesses section. Rose provides a wonderful list of "Dos" and "Don'ts" that will help make sure you are not unnecessarily pushing away the Witnesses with behavior or conversations that are not appropriate or relevant.
I can't urge you to get this resource enough. It is outstanding and should be next to anyone's front door. But don't wait until you see the Witnesses drive up to read it . Go through it now, before they come. Not so that you can win an argument with them. So that you can be like Jesus, full of grace and truth, ready to give a good answers to those who ask you for a reason for the hope that is within you (1 Peter 3:15).
