There was much helpful information in this book--facts to quickly help a Christian understand why we believe what we do. However, there were some points I found disturbing, such as the description of a certain sect as Christian, when it is just as much a cult as the Watchtower Society. The only difference is that it has been around longer, and, as such, has obtained more credibility. Also, considering that the subtitle alludes to the doctrines of the Watchtower Society having their roots in Arianism, I would have liked for the focus to have been more on Arianism and specifically how it was found to be heretical--not simply a statement that it was found so at the Council of Nicea, which, given some of the other things determined by this council, does not alone convince me that this is why I should think of Arianism as heresy. Still, as I said, there was a good amount of information in here for such a small booklet.
