I can't rate this one highly enough. Easy to use ready reference; perfect for on the doorstep use! As it's title indicates this book takes you (and the JW) to the Scriptures for the answers.

I was a JW for 26 years, a friend handed me this book and asked me can you please look this book over some and tell me if it was describing the JW's teachings accurately, I said sure, 3 months later after extensive study I am now a follower of Jesus Christ, not the WT. Excellent, Fair, honest and thoughtful Ron Rhodes knows his stuff

Christians often feel as if they are locked in a war, a spiritual battle with the rest of the world. In these excellent resources, Mr. Rhodes addresses the major movements that face Protestant Christians. While he failed to convince the reviewer that Catholics would qualify as non Christian, the volume dealing with them is extremely instructive in learning about Catholic beliefs, which are often a mysterious thing to a non Catholic. Each book tackles the major and minor beliefs of the system addressed therein with respect and kindness. Rather than beating people over the head with a Bible, the reader learns how to minister gently to those they witness to. In the process, you learn a great deal about other views that in light of current events are timely and relevent. You might even learn a few things about Christianity itself that you did not know or did not understand well.

I never received the books. They say that the books were left on my door step. It must have been someone else's doorstep. John
