Jehovah's Witnesses - Reasons for Leaving

Free e-BookHere you can download my free e-Book: Jehovah's Witnesses - Reasons for Leaving (and for not joining).
There is also a paperback version, which is not free, but I receive no royalties from it whatsoever. If you prefer a physical book you can order it on Amazon:
I was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and left the faith in 2010 at the age of 35. Several people have asked me my reasons. Some of those people did not really want to know, they just wanted to persuade me to return. Others genuinely wanted to understand why I left. I wrote this book for them, but having done so, decided to make it available to anyone who is interested. My purpose in doing so is not to cause offence, but to help people make an informed choice, and hopefully avoid making the same mistakes I did.

Included in this book are my thoughts on:
  • Why I once believed JWs were right
  • Why I left
  • Why I would never go back
  • What happened after I left
  • Why it matters if JWs are wrong
  • Logical fallacies and critical thinking
  • JW handling of child abuse
  • Dishonesty from the Governing Body
  • Armageddon
  • 1914
  • The 144,000
  • Blood transfusions
  • Disfellowshipping
  • Birthdays
  • High control groups
  • Evolution/Creation
  • The Bible
  • Appendix of Watchtower quotes
