It's Saturday afternoon, and you're going about your household chores. You notice as you pass the front door that two people are coming down the street. Since you're not expecting anyone, you peer out from behind the curtains. The two individuals turn down your walkway. They're nicely dressed and wielding attaches that you will discover later are loaded with publications form the Watchtower Society, the parent organization of the Jehovah's Witnesses. If you are like most people, you feel ill-equipped to solve humanity's woes on your doorstep.

Evangelizing Jehovah’s Witnesses | Catholic Answers
Russell was born on February 16, in Pittsburgh, and died on October 31, He was baptized a Congregationalist, and was raised in a strict Protestant family. His later study of the Bible led him to deny the existence of hell and the doctrine of the Trinity, and to express Arian views concerning the nature of Jesus Christ, denying His divinity. He traveled on preaching missions throughout the United States and Europe, organizing his followers, who were called Russellites, Millennial Dawnists, International Bible Students, and finally Jehovah Witnesses.
What Jehovah’s Witnesses Believe
It was from the weekly meetings we had during that I discovered the extent of anti-Catholicism behind the Watchtower's message. The research that I did to defend the Church resulted in this book. The book is presented from a Catholic perspective and is based more on doctrinal differences than cultural ones. There are already many excellent resources on the internet and elsewhere that examine Jehovah's Witness history and culture. Some of the positions I take will definitely offend practicing Jehovah's Witnesses.
