    I was an active member in 2011, so I saw an elder using it in field service. So, I wonder if witnesses keep it for their door by door activity.

    Blondie is correct. The now defunct "Reasoning" book, has been replaced by the easily "adjusted" cliff-notes version, which is the online Watchtard guide.

    Move over 1984, the GB are in town!!!

    They really only need a single sheet of paper with instructions on reasoning, overcoming objections, etc.

    The "reasoning book" was just another 'one-way' publication by the organization. As long as one agreed with the shit in the "reasoning book", then they were considered "reasonable".

    just saying!

    are the Revelation Climax and the Reasoning books no longer available?

    The Revelation Climax book went out of date pretty quickly.

    Perhaps it should be renamed Revelation Anticlimax.

    ......oh sorry that was page 3, here is page 2, showing that the 'Reasoning Book' has been discontinued.......

    This discontinuation thing shows well big challenges the WTS is facing now. In the past they discontinued some book when there was a new light published, now they are dropping book they have no replacement for.

    So you will not find online (i.e. any exegesis of 1,335 days or trumpets in Revelation, but the old Freddie-style books (Daniel's prophecy or Revelation climax) explaining them are not distributed anymore. The light is not shining brighter. I am wondering how they will tackle it...

    Funny, I have a Bible with the old Make Sure book combined in the back of it, and some of the younger JWs had never heard of it. Now the Reasoning Book is going the same way

    How do witnesses not get this point:

    If "truth" needs to change so quickly, then it obviously WAS NOT truth to begin with! So if it was wrong, then was God wrong, or does it prove that the org is not Gods Spokesman!?

    15 years ago, the Reasoning Book was the ''trademark'' book for the dubs in FS. Come to think of it now the Reasoning Book is hardly ever mentioned. All the recent changes you can see the Reasoning Book being pushed to the wayside.

    15 years ago up until just a few recent years it seems the Reasoning Book was the main tool used in FS.
