Does it exist and if so where could I get a copy? I am in touch with a young, particularly uninformed Portuguese sister who has been talking to my bi-lingual neighbour. I have been telling her about some of the organisation's history, of which she is absolutely clueless, and she is open to reading this book....I mean that's how little she knows about her religions own edicts. I feel like it's really a family thing for her, and, of course 'the paradise' as they now call it. Any other Portuguese resources much appreciated too.
Portuguese translation of Crises of conscience?
I am American but speak Portuguese and live in Brazil.
A few years ago there was someone here who I knew in my post-JW days and she was thinking about starting a bible study with a JW and asked for my opinion being I was a former JW. I found some translations of some excerpts from the book at that time. They still might exist. I don't remember if I found the whole book though.
