Known for their extensive research and Bible knowledge, these authors offer readers the essential facts they need to evaluate and discuss today's issues regarding the Jehovah's Witnesses, a religious organization, and the Watchtower Society. The concise, easy-to-follow information helps readers answer such questions as:
Whether the reader is merely curious or searching for specific information, The Facts on Jehovah's Witnesses will give them what they are looking for—easy-to-understand, factual, and relevant information about this group.

Dillon Burroughs is an activist and the author or coauthor of nearly 30 books on issues of faith and culture, including the groundbreaking Undefending Christianity. Dillon has served among at-risk American youth, constructed housing in Mexico’s barrios, provided aid relief in Haiti, and was most recently nominated for a CNN Hero award for his efforts to fight human trafficking. His written and edited works have been featured by NPR, MSNBC, ABC News, and other media outlets.
The book reveals that the Watchtower Society has incorrectly predicted Armageddon and has used its own biases to interpret Scripture. The authors present their case by asking questions about certain aspects of the faith and then answering those questions accordingly. All three authors have impressive educational backgrounds and two of the three authors have written previous books. The book strongly disputes the Watchtower Societys claim that divine guidance comes only through the Watchtower Society. The authors present cases where this so-called divine guidance was flawed and manipulative. The authors remind their readers that God gives wisdom to anyone who asks, not only to a chosen few (James 1:5).
The book accurately reveals the flaws in the Watchtower Societys past actions. Unfortunately, the books tone is very judgmental and unforgiving. The authors make their case in hopes that Jehovahs Witnesses will see the downfalls of their religion. I would suggest this book to anyone who is interested in joining this particular faith or to someone who has been a member of this church for some time. Tamara Peachy, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
