 REVIEWING 2013 New World Translation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is going to challenge your objectivity. Being objective means that personal feelings or opinions do not influence you in considering and representing facts. Being subjective means that your understanding is based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or ideas. If the reader finds these insights offense, it might be a little mind control at work from years of being told the same misinformation repeatedly, so ponder things objectively. We can also have preconceived ideas that have been a part of our thinking for so long; we do not question them. Preconceived is an idea or opinion that is formed before having the evidence for its truth. If we are to be effective, we must season our words, so that they are received well. Then there is the term preconception, which means a preconceived idea or prejudice. Seasoned words, honesty, and accuracy are distinctive features of effective apologetic evangelism.

 Edward D. Andrews boldly answers the challenges Bart D. Ehrman alleges against the fully inerrant, Spirit-inspired, authoritative Word of God. By glimpsing into the life of Bart D. Ehrman and following along his course of academic studies, Andrews helps the reader to understand the biases, assumptions, and shortcomings supporting Ehrman's arguments. Using sound reason, scholarly exegesis, and the Historical-Grammatical method of interpretation, as well as New Testament textual criticism, Andrews helps both churchgoer/Bible students, as well as scholars, overcome the teachings of biblical errancy that Ehrman propagates.—Easy to read and understand.

"A sometimes complex area has been made very palatable and enjoyable to read. Dare I say—even quite exciting!"—Online Reviewer.

"When it comes to defending the Bible from textual, scientific, and historical criticism, Edward D. Andrews has everything you need to any complaint or argument against the Bible's divine inspiration."—Logos Bible Software.

MISREPRESENTING JESUS Debunking Bart D. Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" is an attempt to look behind the scenes at Ehrman's book, and get a picture of his mindset as he penned it by the way he worded something, or repeatedly worded something, or left something out, and far more. This is not to say that I did not get into his arguments, and debunk them, for that was done as well. By the time you finish this book, you will find that Bart Ehrman in Misquoting Jesus is evangelizing for atheism, and using his misleading words to find new members, by way of doubt, contributing to the unwary Christian's spiritual shipwreck.

The intention of this book is to investigate the biblical chronology behind Jehovah's Witnesses most controversial doctrinal position that Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven in October 1914. This biblical chronology of the Witnesses hinges upon their belief that the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians, which they say occurred in 607 B.C.E. The Witnesses conclude that Chapter 4 of the book of Daniel prophesied a 2,520 year period that began in 607 B.C.E. and ended in 1914 C.E. They state, "Clearly, the 'seven times' and 'the appointed times of the nations' refer to the same time period." (Lu 21:24) It is their position that When the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem, the Davidic line of kings was interrupted, God's throne was "trampled on by the nations" until 1914, at which time Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven.

In chapter 1  we will take their chronology from the back of their 1984 New World Translation Reference Bible. We will take the points one-by-one, seeing whether the Watchtower get things right, and where the interpretation breaks down. 

In chapter 2  we will take the time to talk about this craze of Christianity, which also has been overly focusing on such terms as the "end times" or "the last days." While none of us can know the precise time of Jesus' return, how should we view the time that is remaining?

In Chapter 3 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Bible prophecy. In Chapter 4 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the signs of the end of the age. In Chapter 5 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the rapture. In Chapter 6 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the great tribulation. In Chapter 7 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Armageddon. In Chapter 8 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the Resurrection. In Chapter 9 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the millennium. In Chapter 10 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the final judgment. In Chapter 11 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what will happen to the unevangelized. In Chapter 12 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what the book of life is, who have their name written in the book of life, and can their name be erased (removed) from the book of life.
