This download page contains media items and other small articles that don't qualify for the main list. Feel free to download whichever items interest you. This page will contain all types of files covering all aspects of our work. A word of warning however, sometimes the media was not friendly to the work that Jehovah's Witnesses do and this thinking could be reflected in some of the articles. I plan to update this page regularly, at least as often as the main library page.

"All Scripture is Beneficial"

From April 1969 to March 1977 the Society produced a radio program called "All Scripture is Beneficial."
At its peak the show ran on 291 radio stations in the US.
The program has helped to overcome prejudices and to stimulate interest in the field.
The show was stopped in 1977 with over 350 programs completed.
After that local brothers could continue running the program if they wished. Each show is in mp3 format and about 3MB.
