Jehovah’s Witnesses by Trent Horn “looks beyond the colorful tracts and pleasant promises of this quasi-Christian sect to reveal its origins, beliefs, and practices”

Horn does a solid job of addressing some of the main beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses and explaining why they are theologically incorrect. He cites a number of different sources from the Jehovah’s Witnesses as well as taking a historical look. What I really appreciated about this booklet was Horn knew who his audience was. With the 20 Answers booklets as a whole, one must consider if the booklet would be beneficial to opponents of the truths revealed in the booklets or if they are just suitable for Christian apologists. Horn acknowledges the reasons why Jehovah’s Witnesses wouldn’t look at this booklet, so the booklet is really focused on helping the Christian readers. He even addresses points from his book that could produce standstills in a conversation with a Jehovah’s Witness and provides alternative conversational directions. My one criticism is that Horn spends a large chunk of the book talking about the divinity of Christ. This is a critically important topic and does deserve attention, but I think that the topic of the divinity of Christ almost necessitates its own book while an overview on Jehovah’s Witnesses’ heretical belief on Jesus could’ve been slightly shorter. That being said, this booklet contains high-quality information presented in an organized way. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about Jehovah’s Witnesses, but it would be particularly useful to Christians.
