    Greetings y'all. I have read somewheres, which escapes me for the present, that Rutherfor manipulated the dates of his (and others)jailing and release to better fit the 2.5(?) days the 'witnesses' were slain and left dead. Can anyone shed any light on this please. Thanks

    Just so everyone knows what you are talking about I thought this might help...Sorry I don't know about him manipulating dates though...he link is from some nutcase website, but the facts are there...just avoid the whining by the author and you can see what happened pretty clearly...I also like what the court said about him and his cronies as well.. would help if I added the URl..*LOL*

    Thanks for the info - seems that it is just a copy of the proclaimers book though.

    Hi Uriah,

    I don't know if this will help, but Barbara Grizutti Harrison's "VISIONS OF GLORY" can be read online for free here: . Barbara was certainly no WTS apologist...

    ...and Macmillan's "FAITH ON THE MARCH" can be found here, if you want an insider's account:

    I can't say that I recall anyone ever pointing out that the dates were "massaged" so as to fit the "prophecy" - not saying it didn't happen, just saying I don't know...
