Research Resources: Books
While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

This volume contains almost 10,000 references on the Watchtower movement and the dozen or so major schisms that have occurred since its founding in 1879. An introductory chapter reviews the history, major events, and doctrinal changes of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Books, book chapters, booklets, dissertations, journal articles, and book sections that examine the Watchtower movement are referenced in English and other languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Turkish. Selectively annotated, the entries are grouped in five major sections for easy reference. Scholars and researchers will appreciate the comprehensive list the author has provided of all literature published by the Watchtower movement throughout its history.
