Use coupon code CN87S to get it for FREE. Formats available... All of them, I think. :D Choose pdf, mobi
(for Kindle), epub, LRF (for Sony readers), rtf, html and others. As far as I know, the book isn't on Amazon or
Barnes & Nobles yet, but it will be. Please be aware that the coupon code won't work at these other etailers,
though. To get it for free, you have to get it at Smashwords, sorry.
Please feel free to pass the word (and the coupon code) around. This coupon code is set to last
through the end of August, but if there's interest, I can certainly generate another coupon to continue the
book as a freebie, no problem.
Your Sister in Christ,
The Armchair Scholar
This site contains the results
of the extensive study I pursued while studying with a Jehovah's Witness in the book, KNOWLEDGE that Leads to
Everlasting Life.* I must preface all remarks by stating outright that I am not a Hebrew or Greek scholar and in no manner
claim to be an expert in either of those two areas. My research is that of an armchair scholar. I am simply a Christian
who is familiar with the use of concordances, dictionaries, lexicons, commentaries, interlinears, etc., in Bible study.
All research here presented should be considered in that light.
For future reference, throughout
the site, I use the following abbreviations:
= Jehovah's Witnesses
= WatchTower Bible and Tract Society
= KNOWLEDGE that Leads to Everlasting Life*
TEACH** = WHAT DOES THE BIBLE Really TEACH?**
= New World Translation
= Should You Believe in the Trinity?
= Kingdom Interlinear Translation
I refer to mutliple translations
of any given verse in my Bible studies (KJV, NAS and NIV) and I have continued this practice here by adding the NWT to that
list. For primary verses, however, I typically check all translations available to me to give me an overall understanding
of how various translators treated the verse.
I highly recommend the following
on-line resources, which have been invaluable in my studies:
download of Bible software. Many translations plus original Hebrew and Greek texts, commentaries, dictionaries,
various books and devotionals are also available as free add-ons. Great for off-line studying.
to Vine's Expository Dictionary, sermon searches, etc.
I provide my research
here for all Christians who begin a study with JWs in the KNOWLEDGE* book, as I have, in prayerful hope that this material may
be helpful to you.

A NOTE ABOUT THE TITLE OF THIS SITE
AND MY SELF-ASSUMED TITLE, ARMCHAIR SCHOLAR:
of you who are not football fans, an armchair quarterback can loosely be defined as someone who watches football on TV, yet
without ever having at any time played the game himself, knows exactly what the players and coaches should be doing, usually
better than the coaches and the players (all professionals) know themselves. Yes, I know what it means. And yes, Armchair
Scholar is derived from armchair quarterback.
am an armchair scholar.
I lack any
and all formal training in matters of faith, yet I present the material on this site as scholarly treatise.
I lack formal
training, very true, woefully true.
I do not,
however, lack a sense of humor, particularly at my own expense.
