well well thing is sure, this guy has got a very high diploma in sophism or how to present fallacious ideas with a seemingly perfect logic but actually just a big load of BS.I have no sympathy for the jehovah witnesses but I don't see how you can convince someone by making him read extracts from the Bible seeing that he has his own translation of the Bible and that his translation is different.
I also really really loved dr Rhodes epic sentences especially when he writes that men and w

Excellent resource to learn what the jws believe and how to communicate to them about the truth. Also a great resource for any Christian because it talks in detail about key doctrines and gives much scripture to back it up

Everything you need to know about the JW's is here. Easy to read and to understand. It was a pleasure to read and a powerful weapon to have studied.

Recommends it for: those with an interest in the Jehovah's Witness organization
***Pre-review***So far I can see that the author is relating his experience in a way that can teach and not 'point the blame' at this organization.

Finished review- Though complete in its assessment of using Scripture to unfold the "truth" about Jehovah's Witness. I did not think the author was user friendly enough for the average person to grasp the concept of how to approach a JW with the message of Christianity using his book. I felt you would have to have some biblical understanding yourself

Just for full disclosure, I'm a fairly vocal atheist, thus this was anything but my particular cup of tea. However, it deserves better than a one star, which I was very tempted to give, if only for the amusement factor. Want a lesson in what cognitive dissonance is, read this little tome. Oy vey . . .

Recommends it for: Anyone who wants to Share the REAL Jesus with JW's.
I finished the book and yet, not. See, this isn't one of those books that you finish and put away. Like so many other resource books, they can be used over and over. Especially with the project I've taken on lately.

Speaking of which, I'll be adding the next book I started, just as I was finished (sort of) reading Reasoning From the Scriptures W/JW's .

I believe this is a great tool to have. No doubt much more could have been said for each passage of Scripture that Rhodes explained. Nevertheless, Rhodes does a great job "reasoning from the Scripture with Jehovah's witnesses."

For those Christians who feel called to reason lovingly with Jehovah's Witnesses from the Scriptures rather than shut the door, this is an excellent book. Not an easy read but well worth persevering and keeping it handy for the time when the knock on the door comes.

This is the book to read for interacting with Jehovah's Witnesses. The question format is still intact from the original edition. The chapters are expanded and this is helpful. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to be quickly equipped to share the truth of the Bible with the JW's at their door.

Shelves: apologetics
If you come from a mainstream Christian worldview, this book can help you answer the questions Jehovah's Witnesses might ask you. A great apologetic resource!

“As we seek to interpret the meaning of this phrase, it is critical to keep in mind what other scriptures have to say about the distinction between the Father and the Son. For example, the New Testament calls Jesus “the Son” over 200 times. Moreover, the Father is considered by Jesus as someone other than Himself over 200 times in the New Testament. And over 50 times in the New Testament the Father and Son are seen to be distinct within the same verse (see, for example, Romans 15:6; 2 Corinthians 1:4; Galatians 1:2-3; Philippians 2:10-11; 1 John 2:1; 2 John 3).52” 0 likes
