    I LOVED THIS BOOK. The author tells his story of deconversion from being a strong Jehovah's Witness, born into the faith and a true believer, to atheism. I found it a quick read, largely because it was so interesting that I stayed up super late reading! I don't know a lot about the Witness religion (except for the part where they knock on your door), so it was very interesting to get an insider's view of that faith.

    Another intriguing "insider" perspective. This time from a former Jehovah's Witness turned atheist. His experiences mimic those of many whose family were deeply involved in any all-embracing religious background.

This time from a former Jehovah's Witness turned atheist. His experiences mimic those of many whose family were deeply involved in any all-embracing religious background. However, the highly isolated & closed nature of the J.W. world makes his experience a bit more intense and focused story. Like many American pseudo-christian cults (including many "mainline" christian groups), J.W.'s thoroughly inculcate their followers with the fear that leaving "The Truth" can lead only to doom and destruction. This aura of trepidation and apprehension, enforced by the organized shunning that will follow, makes escape from the J.W. world unthinkable to most members of "Kingdom Halls." Some may find his memoir to contain much that is just too much to believe, but as a student of religious nonsense for decades, and personal experience of talking with many who have themselves escaped diverse theocratic systems (including experiencing some "shunning" myself), I can assure you his experiences are not atypical.

    Honest and vulnerable storey of a man struggling to know what is true I like James Zimmerman. I too came out of a group of people convinced they had all the answers. His clear discussion of how he wanted to do right, but had too much respect for the truth to ignore the flaws in the "Truth" that his cult demanded he accept. He documents the suffering he experienced and continues to experience from his friends and family who are still caught up in the cult. My heart goes out to him as he walks a ne Honest and vulnerable storey of a man struggling to know what is true I like James Zimmerman.

    This is an informative book. The author relates his experience authentically and rather than revealing his own emotions, allows the reader to come to her own conclusions. It does not demonize the Witnesses but shares his reasons for leaving the faith and his reflections thereafter. Well done.

    Disclosure: This is a memoir written by a friend of mine. I read an ARC to help proof the book. If you have an interest in minority religions or de-conversion stories, this book is full of fascinating details about life as a Jehovah's Witness and what it means when you leave the organization.
