Item description for Answering Jehovah's Witnesses by Jason Evert & Joel S. Peters...
Answering Jehovah's Witnesses walks you through the doctrines of the JWs, revealing where and why they're wrong--giving special attention to favorite verses and standard topics that a JW will use in rejecting the Catholic faith. The book provides helpful and practical suggestions for sharing your faith with Jehovah's Witnesses and planting seeds of truth. Planting seeds is easier than you might think. While most JWs appear to be well-informed Scripture scholars, they're just reading from a script with canned answers to your objections. For the most part they're surprisingly unfamiliar with the Bible. It doesn't take much to throw a monkey wrench into their belief system. Answering Jehovah's Witnesses will show you how.

Reviews - What do customers think about Answering Jehovah's Witnesses?
Make sure you read this before they come a'knockin... Sep 19, 2008
Wonderful, wonderful! Short, but hits all the major beliefs that separates Catholics and JWs with tons of scriptural evidence for the Catholic position. I have a very good friend who is a devout JW and from what I can gather, Jason does not set up straw men or misrepresent the JWs. He lays out what they ACTUALLY teach and then rebuts it.
Good read Jul 18, 2008
Well laid out, walks the reader thru the background of the organization, their mode of operation and then point by point through the major points of contention. It is a pretty quick read.
Excellent refutation of JW claims Sep 5, 2007
I purchased this book after having read several other books on the Jehovah's Witnesses. I liked this book the best. I am a former JW myself, having served as a pioneer (full-time door-to-door evangelizer), ministerial servant (deacon) and elder (minister). I can assure you that this book will particularily assist Catholics to refute the claims made by JW's against the Catholic Church (I converted to the Catholic Church in 2004) but also is helpful for Christians of all denominations. Many JW's are ex-Catholics, most of whom never really studied their faith or are really familiar with the history of Jehovah's Witnesses. It is likely that some Catholics have some JW's in their family or will have some in the near future. This book is especially helpful if a family member is thinking about leaving the Catholic Church and becoming a Jehovah's Witness.
Jason Everett Knows His Stuff! Mar 8, 2006
Jason Evert knows his stuff. His Catholicism is undeniably first-rate as is his understanding of the JW sect. This book will definitely enable Catholics to innoculate themselves against Watchtower religion. However, no JW ever reads non-JW literature, so any book is useless to help them, even an excellent book such as this. Purchase this book for your own peace of mind, so you'll know just how nutty Watchtower religion is.
Author of JEHOVAH UNMASKED and I WAS A TEENAGE JEHOVAH'S WITNESS.
An excellent source Apr 28, 2005
If you wish you knew how to dialogue with Jehovah's Witnesses, but don't know what they believe or how to refute their claims, then this is the book for you! It answers questions like:
Should you believe in the Trinity? Is Jesus Michael the Archangel? Is Jesus God? Is the Holly Spirit God? Is God's name Jehovah? Did Jesus die on a torture stake or a cross? Did Christ's body rise? Did Christ return already? Who goes to heaven? Is Hell real? What about military service, blood transfusion, and holidays?
. . .and much, much more. Jason Evert's book is full of Scriptural references to back his arguments, and it points out the errors of the "New World Translation" in the chapter, "Can You Trust the 'New World Translation'?" The book is easy to navigate and read, and is packed with great information.
