    A good reference to the theological bullshit devised by one of the top writing editors (J Rutherford) of the Watchtower Publishing house.

    These writings didn't have to be honest or accurate, they just had to attractive and engaging to the potential reading public.

    p. 102-.......174 Jesus was not an angel or spirit being.....

    p. 254 452........"And at that time shall Michael [God's representative, the Messiah] stand up........

    p 230 "Twelve hundred sixty years from A.D 539 brings us to 1799-another proof that 1799 definitely marks the beginning of the "time of the end". This also shows that it is from the date 539 A.D that the other prophetic days of Daniel must be counted.

    p231 The time of the Lord's second presence dates from 1874.

    p 233 In Nahum 2:1-6 the Prophet records his vision of a railway train traveling at a high rate of speed, as another evidence of the day of (cont.234) preparation for the establishment of Christ's kingdom.

    p 236 We should expect then, the general harvest of the gospel age to end in 1918.

    p 236 We should therefore expect to find a harvest period from 1878 to 1918.......

    p248....In the year 1919 many Bible Students in different parts of the earth,......blah,blah..blah.....proclaim the message....."The World Has Ended-Millions Now Living Will Never Die," clearly in fufillment in the words of the Master.......(caps are theirs) (again in same paragraph) Millions Now Living Will Never Die..... (also on various other pages)

    p 279 ...The church of Christ consists of Jesus Christ the head and the 144,000

    p307 ....and the song of the Lamb [the song of the clear fulfillment of prophecy and the unfolding of God's plan, as set forth in the New Testament; they are playing upon their harps adn praising jehovah.....(sorry I do not recognized the word jehovah and will not capitalize it, obviously it is in the book)

    p 166 "Being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.....(why don't jw's capitalize He when speaking of Jesus?)

    p 114 has a nice woodcut/etching of Jesus upon the Cross

    p90 .....without pain and without suffering there was born to her Jesus, the Savior of the world.

    p234 It was in the year 1874, the date of our Lord's second presence.....

    p235 talks about all the wonderful new inventions of the time .."come to light since 1874, as further evidence of the Lord's presence since that date as follows: adding machines, aeroplanes, aluminum (didn't the wt go on to say aluminum was an invention of the devil at one point?) antiseptic surgery, artificial dyes, automatic couplers, automobiles, barbed wire, bicycles, , etc...etc....

    This book is filled with crazy stuff.

    Jws are just propagators of the theological bullshit the WTS heads calculatingly dream up.

    Doctrines which perhaps had more commercial appeal than honest and truthful Bible interpretation.

    "I am told it has some crazy passages in it." - blownaway

    The craziest one of all is on the title page of the 1921 edition:

    "This generation shall by no means pass away until all these things occur."

    Depends on which edition, the book was updated several times, not only in text but also in pictures. There's one on ebay for 2 bucks

    Four green harps actually and from 1952, time flies when you're having fun. It was called "God's Way Is Love"
