This a fine, informative book that reads like a thriller. As the book unfolded, I was pulling for the author as he dealt with his developing cognitive dissonance about his belief in the doctrines of his Jehovah's Witness faith in contrast to the realities of the modern world. I wanted to see him escape the trap of his religious enslavement to door to door evangelism. The story provides a good look into the process of how certain religious beliefs can consume a person's life. It gave me new insight into the folks who knock on my door and expect that they can convert an atheist to their belief system if they are persuasive enough. Also revealed is the human pettiness found in all organizations but often amplified in religious groups. I will no longer look with disrespect upon the people who come to my home to convert me, but with hope that they too can find their way out of their religious predicament.
