Book Review: The Gospel Truth

You may have seen my recent facebook post about the book The Gospel Truth. I thought I would do a little bit more elaboration on my blog.

It is written by a Christian from Barbados. He used to be a Jehovah's Witness, until, through a series of people he witnessed to, God called him out of the Witnesses and he became a Christian.

The story is about a Witness named Kamal, who knows his Bible better than any non-Witness he knows. This leads him to think that he must have the correct doctrine. He has a series of encounters which make him question the Watchtower organization, and cause him to wonder about things such as the Trinity, the Incarnation, and the true nature of God.

If you have never actually known a JW, this book will give you a lot of insight into how much they know about scripture, how they worship, and what they believe.

It spends a lot of time explaining and defending the doctrine of the Trinity and of the divinity of Christ, countering many arguments against them. The book is mostly about the Biblical evidence of the Trinity, mixed in with the life of  Jehovah's Witness.

It is independently published and edited, so it is not formatted exactly like a book you may pick up at Barnes and Noble, but it is definitely worth the read.

The print length is about 220 pages, but the print is quite large, and it could likely be completed in one Saturday.

It can also be downloaded through Amazon, but the author receives a higher percentage of the money from the createspace link.
