One of the best approaches is to `know the competition,' and in this regard Jason Evert's book will prove to be a useful tool in combating the Jehovah's Witnesses' mindset and doctrines. This work is intended for the `average Catholic' who has no formal training in theology, and so it is designed to be easily understood and practical. Beginning with the foundations of the Watchtower organization, the author deals with its presidents and history, moves next through the basic structure and content of the Jehovah's Witness' world, and then discusses the various doctrines of the Watchtower and how to refute them. Particular attention is given to some `favorite verses' and standard topics that a Witness will typically use in attacking the Catholic faith. Finally, some extremely helpful and practical suggestions are offered for how to interact with someone who has become a Jehovah's Witness.

|Review:||This book has been so helpful in educating me on the origins and beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses. I needed answers to help me to be able to speak with them who happen to be Family members. When I need to be reminded , I find myself going back to where I may have marked something helpful to me in a specific situation how to to answer them in an accurate way. I recommend giving this book to a Jehovah's Witness who may be questioning their beliefs in their Religion to help to open their eyes to the truth of what they are being taught.
