Answers you need to witness effectively to Jehovah's Witnesses

When Jehovah's Witnesses come to your door, have you ever wished you could get them off their memorized scripts and show them what the Bible really teaches?

Have you ever wished you had the information necessary to lovingly show them why their religion is wrong?

Now you can!

Using many quotes from Watchtower leaders, this small book exposes the errors of this false religion, presenting thought-provoking questions Jehovah's Witnesses can't answer. Don't turn them away from your door saying, "I'm not interested." Learn the questions that will make them think, so you can effectively share the true gospel with them.

Did you know? - In 1889, Jehovah's Witness founder C.T. Russell predicted:

"...the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the establishment of the Kingdom of God, will be accomplished at the end of A.D. 1914."

This is one in a long list of unfulfilled Jehovah's Witness Bible prophecies that are revealed in this book.
