God: The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction, by Dan Barker (2016).

The Reluctant Apostate: Leaving Jehovah's Witnesses Comes at a Price, by Lloyd Evans (2017).


Jehovah’s Witnesses, well known for their enthusiastic evangelism, are a global religious movement boasting over 8 million members. Despite being a familiar sight on doorsteps and street corners, little is known about their doctrines and practices. What are their expectations regarding Armageddon, and who do they believe will survive? How do they justify their ban on blood transfusions? What happens to members who decide to leave? In this remarkably frank part-memoir, part-history guide, former Witness elder Lloyd Evans comprehensively explores the religion of his upbringing, charting the organization’s metamorphosis from unassuming 19th Century “brethren” to global brand in the modern age.

The Greatest Story Ever Told...So Far, by Lawrence M. Krauss. (2017).


In the beginning there was light but more than this, there was gravity. After that, all hell broke loose...This is how the story of the greatest intellectual adventure in history should be introduced - how humanity reached its current understanding of the universe, one that is far removed from the realm of everyday experience. Krauss connects the world we know with the invisible world all around us, which is removed from intuition and direct sensation. He explains our current understanding of nature and the struggle to construct the greatest theoretical edifice ever assembled, the Standard Model of Particle Physics -- and then to understand its implications for our existence.

Visions of Glory: A History and a Memory of Jehovah's Witnesses, by Barbara Grizzuti Harrison (1978).


Harrison became nationally known in 1978 when she published Visions of Glory: A History and a Memory of Jehovah's Witnesses, which combined childhood memoirs with a history of the Jehovah's Witness movement. Although Harrison expressed admiration for individual Witnesses and wrote sympathetically of their persecution, she portrayed the faith itself as harsh and tyrannical, racist and sexist.

How to Escape From Jehovah's Witnesses, by Lloyd Evans (Author), Paul Grundy (Foreword). (2018).


Jehovah's Witnesses number into the millions globally and are well known for their public evangelism about God's kingdom. But beneath the facade of brotherly love and organizational unity lies a captive organization in which doubts are stifled and dissent is ruthlessly crushed. Once a Witness stops believing, they face being ostracized as a loathed "mentally diseased" apostate. They must navigate a labyrinth of obstacles and dilemmas due to the organization's cruel policy of shunning former members. Lloyd Evans is a well known ex-Witness writer and activist, and in his second book he draws on his firsthand, insider knowledge as a former elder to guide would-be escapees through the minefield that awaits them.

Barbara Anderson Uncensored: Eyewitness To Deceit, by Barbara Anderson with Richard Kelly. (2018).


Barbara Anderson was a Jehovah’s Witness from 1954 to 1997. But while working as a researcher and writer at their worldwide headquarters from 1982 thru 1992, something went terribly wrong. Barbara uncovered a conflict that would derail her plans, and change her life forever. Her unique story shines a bright light on Watchtower/JW.ORG policies that not only protect sexual predators, but unduly influence members to believe policies and beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses are Bible-based and inspired from God. Barbara’s story also includes unprecedented commentary from Bonnie Zieman, M.Ed., psychotherapist, and author Jon Atack. Bonnie and Jon have written extensively about coercive control and report behind the scenes, while Barbara shares her story, of what was happening psychologically in her high-control world.

Les Témoins appelés à la barre: mensonges, sottises et manipulation chez les Témoins de Jéhovah, par Michel Morin. (2018).


Dans un essai percutant où il examine les doctrines imposées par l’organisation Watchtower aux huit millions de Témoins de Jéhovah, l’avocat Michel Morin dénonce les mensonges et les techniques d’endoctrinement ayant cours dans ce mouvement vivant en marge des “gens du monde”. Démasquant les sophismes et les emplois malhonnêtes des versets bibliques inondant les publications de Watchtower, Me Morin pilonne systématiquement les enseignements de cette mouvance religieuse en réfutant un après l’autre leurs arguments. La doctrine du sang, les interdits d’anniversaires, la prédication, l’imminence d’Armageddon : rien n’échappe à l’examen de l’auteur.
