Rescuing Slaves of the Watchtower is a candid testimony of how Joe B. Hewitt became an ex-Jehovah Witness and why. Slaves, to me, sounded derogatory at first glance, but we are all slaves to either evil or righteousness, based on Scripture.

Hewitt talks about the different lies he learned–those that are outright lies that twist Scripture, and those that omit Scripture. How he believes that if any JW would read their Bible without using any Watchtower materials, they would see the truths of the Gospel in their own NWT version or at least question the validity of the Watchtower messages.

He goes on to distinguish how the Watchtower “lies, has more than a century of false prophecies (which makes them a false prophet), does 180-degree turns in their dogma, totalitarian hierarchy,toleration of child abuse, and glaring contradictions of Biblical truth.” But he also has a section on multiple ways to reach out and witness in a loving way.

For a better understanding of Jehovah Witnesses, their beliefs and how Scripture is used errantly in many of their teachings, this would be a good starter book. He’s very thorough in how and what he presents.
