Historical Resources on Jehovah's Witnesses

Here a web page providing extensive historical resources on Jehovah's Witnesses, courtesy of CatholicForum.com, a Roman Catholic website.

Personal favorite: Armageddon Inc., a 1940 Saturday Evening Post article about them under Rutherford, when they expected that Armageddon would be the conclusion of World War II.

  1. Yes, they did expect Armageddon to end WW II, and so did HWA. In fact he set the next end of the world time for 1975, as did Fred Franz, their prophet of the mid twentieth century.
    When prophecies fail, they upgrade them to a future date, and their faithful followers continue to be true believers
