Witness : Inside Jehovah's Witnesses Inside Catholic Poland Inside a Gay Life
by Robert Rient and Frank Garrett


Overview -
Award-winning journalist Robert Rient chronicles his childhood inside Poland's hermetic Jehovah's Witness community and describes how he eventually comes to terms with his life and identity after leaving his religion. Witness bears witness to a double isolation: first, the boy with a "feline faith" is ostracized by his peers in staunchly Catholic Poland in the 1990s, and second, after he decides to leave the faith, he is rejected by friends and family who remain in the religion. Through his writings, friendships, and training in psychology, Rient manages to survive, but only after completely shedding his former name and identity. Rient's book is more than just a memoir; it is an important expos of the psychological abuses suffered in the name of religion.
