My childhood friend Alan left the religion of Jehovah’s Witness (JWs) around 1991 because of his in-depth research and began to write about what he uncovered. The last time I saw Alan when we both were JWs was that same year when he visited Brooklyn Bethel.
In 1998 when I quietly left the religion, Alan and I reconnected. During our conversations, it was only then he learned about my work in the Writing Department (we were not permitted to talk about our assignments), where I was working as a researcher on the Watch Tower’s history book, JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES – PROCLAIMERS OF GOD’S KINGDOM.
Alan had many questions for me, and I might add that his part of the conversation was a strong critique of the book. He had many negative comments which led to his compiling his material into a document.
The PROCLAIMERS book is no longer promoted by the organization perhaps because of critiques like the one Alan did.Barbara Anderson
