    20 years ago, Leonard and Marjorie Chretien published their book Witnesses of Jehovah to accompany the movie by the same name that they had produced. For those unfamiliar with the movie, some clips can be found here:

    At the time, this was quite the hard-hitting film that was shown in many churches and other venues and also saw quite a distribution by video and lately has been distributed by DVD in both English and Spanish.

    The book Witnesses of Jehovah has been out of print for many years. The authors have graciously given permission for the book to be freely distributed on the Internet in PDF format. It's 219 pages and is a good general look at the JWs. My favorite chapter is chapter 13, "Jenny", which starts on page 191.

    For those interested the book in PDF format (just under 3 MB) can be downloaded from this filesharing site:

    cabasilas, thank you for posting it. We showed the video last year at an educational seminar we helped out with in Australia. I had not watched it for years. Even though it's a bit dated, it was still very effective.

    Thanks! I have copies of the book on my shelf and I've had the VHS for years. It's good to have a searchable copy.

    DocBob, Eyes Open, GaryBus,

    You're welcome. I did not make the file searchable to keep it at a smaller size to be easily emailed. Right now, it's small enough to fit on almost all email systems. However, I will make a searchable copy and post that later.

    Thank you for posting this cabasilas! We have had the video for years, and it is still a great film to have as a teaching aid about the Watchtower organization.

    Many thanks!

    As I promised, here's a searchable version of the book "Witnesses of Jehovah" for those who might want it. It's 6.4 MB and can be downloaded from this filesharing site:

    Also, for those interested, here is a tract from 1985 written by the Chretien's entitled "I am a Witness" which contains their testimony:

    And, as mentioned on another thread but for those who may have missed it, here is the booklet "Insights into the Watchtower Society" that was circulated along with the film "Witnesses of Jehovah":
