About this Item

Paperback. 306 pages. Dimensions: 7.8in. x 5.1in. x 0.7in.Most of us have encountered one of Jehovahs Witnesses, perhaps as an unexpected visitor at the doorstep, a pupil at school, or a patient needing medical care. With nearly eight million members, they are one of the worlds fastest growing religions. But what do they believe, and what makes them tick Until now it has been difficult to find out. There are many books about Jehovahs Witnesses but most are written by fundamentalist Christians, intent on promoting their own version of Christianity. The few personal coming-of-age stories of those who have left the religion are more informative, but they dont tell us much about what Jehovahs Witnesses really believe. This insightful new study from Rachel Walsh takes a different approach. She undertakes a comprehensive study of Jehovahs Witnesses from a secular point of view, including analysis of their beliefs, motivations, and organizational culture. A unique feature of The Day of Jehovahs Witnesses is an introductory short story to each chapter that encourages the reader to reassess what they think they already know. Walsh sweeps away many popular misconceptions about Jehovahs Witnesses, but what she reveals in their place may ultimately surprise you. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781909425453

About this title

Synopsis:

Most of us have encountered one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, perhaps as an unexpected visitor at the doorstep, a pupil at school, or a patient needing medical care. Yet if you want to discover what they really believe, or what is the real motivation behind their actions, until now it has been surprisingly difficult to find out. Books about Jehovah’s Witnesses are often written by fundamentalists who are not sufficiently objective, or alternatively, contain the personal experiences of ex-members who may not provide much information about the culture surrounding Jehovah’s Witnesses. This insightful new study from Rachel Walsh takes a different approach. She undertakes a comprehensive study of Jehovah’s Witnesses from a secular point of view, including analysis of their beliefs, motivations, and organizational culture. Walsh sweeps away many popular misconceptions, but what she reveals in their place may cause a shift in the current perception of Jehovah’s Witnesses that is all the more startling.
