I recently posted this as a response on another thread, but after some thought, decided I wanted it to be a separate thread of its own.
When I was a JW, I used to have an almost uncanny ability to figure out what sort of new releases would be coming out at the upcoming assembly, particularly after I heard what the theme would be. I was rarely wrong. I based my predictions on the theme, plus my sense of what sort of publication was "due," i.e. needed to replace something that was outdated.
So, now that I've "ceased to be involved," let's see if my abilities have waned...
For this summer, I predict a new book on Ezekiel's Prophecy. Why?
1. They are obviously doing a series on major prophets, having already released new commentaries on Daniel and Isaiah.
2. The theme, "Zealous Kingdom Proclaimers," certainly seems to lend itself to the r&f getting hammered with the "man with the writer's inkhorn" stuff about how they'll be held accountable if they don't witness enough.
3. The "Know Jehovah" book needs badly to be replaced and forgotten, since it explicitly stated that the Kingdom Work would be completed in the 20th century.
So, come June, we'll know whether my prophetic abilities are still with me!!
By the way, God didn't reveal any of this to me, so don't call me a false prophet if I'm wrong!!
