Jehovah's Witnesses : Continuity and Change Paperback
Part of the Routledge New Religions series
From its origins in nineteenth century Adventism until the present day, the Watch Tower Society has become one of the best known but least understood new religious movements.
Resisting the tendency to define the movement in terms of the negative, this volume offers an empathetic account of the Jehovah's Witnesses, without defending or seeking to refute their beliefs.
George Chryssides critically examines the historical and theological bases of the organization's teachings and practices, and discusses the changes and continuities which have defined it.
The book provides a valuable resource for scholars of new religious movements and contemporary religion.
