It is the first book I could find about JWs when I started to research back in the mid-90s. A good read, for sure. It's not the only book Dr. Penton has written, and he is highly recognized in the academic community.
and SBF is correct,
That is complete nonsense. He criticised Israeli atrocities in Palestine and the influence of the Israeli lobby over American policy. Is that not allowed?
If it was, in fact, Dr. Penton, that is EXACTLY what he did. I clearly remember the thread, and you, J_W, attacked him vociferously - how dare a mere Canadian state a negative view of American foreign policy? *sheesh!* Anyone who doesn't think the Israelis are supported by the USA needs to do a bit of research.
And I agree with TD as well ... he is a very nice man and is to be found on facebook.
