  • Out of the Cocoon offers a monthly newsletter which provides information and support for ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide. The newsletter in no way attempts to convert the reader to another religion. It does, however, contains website links, biographies from former members, questions and answers, poetry, inspirational quotes, JW-related jokes, and other items of interest.
  • Barbara G. Harrison author of many books and essays, including Unlearning the Lie: Sexism in School (Liveright, 1973), Visions of Glory: A History and a Memory of Jehovah’s Witnesses, available free online (Simon and Schuster, 1978), Off Center: Essays (Dial Press, 1980), The Astonishing World: Essays (Ticknor & Fields, 1992), and An Accidental Autobiography (Houghton Mifflin, 1996).

“It delivers people who have no tolerance for ambiguity from having to make moral choices. It allows self-loathers to project their hatred onto the world. It translates the allure of the world into Satanic temptation, so that those who fear its enticements are armed against seduction. It provides ego balm for the lowly, an identification with the The Chosen. Because Jehovah’s Witnesses believe as little in psychology as they do in philosophy, it tames or numbs the wilderness of the heart by closing valves of inquiry.” – Barbara G. Harrison
