My husband and I were long time witnesses [about sixty years]. Although my husband was in bethel and had many other responsible positions, nothing prepared us for ISoCC.
For us it was more important than CoC
First we read CoC. That destroys their structural credibility. But left us feeling a little bit up in the air.l
ISoCC completely demolishes the doctrines that the FDS proudly say are “unique to Jehovah’s Witnesses”.
I clearly remember sitting in my living room sobbing into a pillow when reading the chapter on disfellowshiping. I defy anyone to get through that chapter with dry eyes.
You need ISoCC to fit all the pieces in the puzzle.
If you order from Commentary Press, Ray’s own site, you will automatically get the latest edition. We did about 10 months ago. Another nice thing about ordering from Ray is that he gets all the money, and he needs it.
They are wonderful books from a kind Christian.
By the way for all who are interested he has some very essays at this link.
