Leaving the Witness: Exiting a Religion and Finding a Life Reviews

  • Jen
    Never would have guessed that in a book about Jehovah's Witnesses that I would also find a mini historical look back at the beginning of the podcast era AND Alanis Morissette's breakout album "Jagged Little Pill."This book really checks so many boxes: it's a spy novel, an insider's look at a religio...

    For this one, I felt the author distanced herself too much from her story. It almost felt like she was writing about someone else most of the time. There are some good segments in the book, but overall the writing style was so-so. The author has, however, gone through some dark times and unique chal...

    How to Lose Your Family and FriendsWhy this book? I thought of why these books are important to read. Not only do they help people who have left the Jehovah’s Witnesses, but they may save someone from joining this cult. People need to be educated so they won’t join this cult or any other. ...
