Book Review: The Watchtower Society, Organizational Misbehavior
This is the way Crisis of Conscience should have been written. Finally, a book written on the Watchtower Society by someone who actually knows how to write! After reading the subheading, “The Psychology of Jehovah’s Witnesses,” (pages 160–182), I have abandoned the belief that we have an “unconscious,” and will never again consult any psychologist, psychiatrist, or counselor. The next time I feel down, I’ll be turning to Jehovah in prayer and to his Word. I also loved the unique way Mr. Ibarra completely destroys the JW doctrines of 1914 and the 144,000. I’m still beside myself at the way he wrote it. It’s unlike anything you have ever seen or will ever see again. And Gabriel’s detailed analysis of the Watchtower Society’s encyclopedia, Insight on the Scriptures, where he shows that 13% of it is nothing but assumption, is extra icing on a cake that has already left you satisfied. Believe me, you will never find anything like this on the internet nor on any book written by “apostates.” Take all the books ever written on the Jehovah’s Witness religion, put them together, and Gabriel H Ibarra pulverizes them.
Although the book is about the Society, on several places Mr. Ibarra analyzes Scripture in many ancient languages which is just mind-blowing, especially in Appendix 1 and 2. A brilliant Bible scholar and ancient language scholar, Gabriel H Ibarra holds supremacy, an excellency worthy of respect. Seeing first hand the absolute mastery he has over these disciplines, I’ll put Gabriel H Ibarra against any scholar with a thousand doctorates any time. Now I understand why Mr. Ibarra was nicknamed Jehovah’s Word, because he commands the Bible and ancient languages like no other, Gabriel H Ibarra “has no equal.” Clearly, this man’s supergenius is the product of holy spirit, since it can’t be explained in human terms. With good reason, I have nothing but praise for this work. Amen!Too bad few people know about this book or are willing to buy it because of the price, since it’s a major blow to the mighty Watchtower Society. Now that I have read it, personally, I would have paid up to $100.
Interesting, I wasn't aware of this book.
...and the Insight Books have bit the dust.....apparently not very 'insightful' anymore.

And how would you know that, johnny depp? What are your qualifications? You would have to be an expert in ancient languages to be qualified to make such an assertion. Are you? You remind me of my mother. She is clueless. She can't do simple arithmetic, doesn't know what a molecule is, doesn't know the difference between a verb and an adverb, etc., but I often hear her saying something like "He's so smart." I then say "How would you know whether he's smart? You don't have the qualifications to make such a judgment."
You could have made your OP sound a little more genuine. It reads like a low-class sales pitch - like an attempt by a naive junior high student to sell something. I really like book recommendations, but yours is nonsense; go somewhere else with it. Don't waste my time.
The OP is an obvious attempt to sell the book. You’re not recommending the book to us because you really care about us; you’re just wanting sales for the book. Your "book review" is so over the top and gushing over the author and the book that it (the review) is a joke. It makes me think that there must not be too much to the book if you have to insincerely gush over it as you do. And, as I've already indicated, who are you that you qualify to “review” the book the way you do?
I’ll put Gabriel H Ibarra against any scholar with a thousand doctorates any time. Now I understand why Mr. Ibarra was nicknamed Jehovah’s Word, because he commands the Bible and ancient languages like no other, Gabriel H Ibarra “has no equal.” Clearly, this man’s supergenius is the product of holy spirit, since it can’t be explained in human terms.
Oh, thank you, Mr. depp, I'll buy the book immediately. Coming from an eminent scholar and expert like you, this review whets my apettite for the book. I know it must greatly please Mr. Ibarra to get this praise from someone like you.
Dude, for real, your "review" is so over the top it makes me question your IQ. Is it really meant to be taken seriously? By the way, are you Gabriel H Ibarra?
