This brief apologetic was borne of discussions I had with several Jehovah’s Witnesses who graced my doorstep over the span of a few years, not many years ago, and of the subsequent conversations we enjoyed at a nearby Kingdom Hall. I learned from those discussions that the popular literature which addresses JW doctrine doesn’t adequately appraise the effect their view of Christ has on the biblical metanarrative.The typical approach is insufficient primarily because it fails to address the core issue which is the distinctive proxy status that Jehovah gives to Jesus Christ as the Son of Man and the Son of God and what that means for the identity of God.Jesus Christ asked his disciples the most crucial question: “Who do you say that I am?”The answer given by Jehovah’s Witnesses has significant implications for their view of God; in fact, it serves to undermine their biblical worldview entirely. Ironically, it is through their commitment to defend the orthodox oneness of God that they suffer the unintended consequence of dishonoring Him. In denying the deity of Jesus Christ, the JW unwittingly saws off the theological branch he is sitting on, and his god necessarily falls with him.In this book we will examine the effect of JW Christology on the biblical metanarrative, and we will discover what an orthodox understanding of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Son of Man means for a coherent view of God.

Review Text

  • By William Horsburgh on 30 November 2016

    This is an excellent book, the only thing wrong is that it is too short! John 3:16 has taken on a whole new aspect of meaning. Read it for yourself.
