List of Watch Tower Society publications

The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society produces religious literature primarily for use by Jehovah's Witnesses. The organization's international writing, artwork, translation, and printery workforce are all baptized Jehovah's Witnesses. Since 2001, the literature produced by the Watch Tower Society is said to have been "published by Jehovah's Witnesses". Prior to 1931, the Watch Tower Society produced literature for the Bible Student movement.

Unbulletted publications are generally out of print and considered obsolete. Indented publications are superseded by more recent publications.

The Watch Tower Society produces audio recordings of dramatic presentations of biblical characters or contemporary settings with a religious theme. Audio recordings, including dialog, music, and sound effects, are produced at the Watch Tower Society headquarters and other branch offices. The recordings are presented at annual conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses, usually accompanied by members acting out the scenes with costumes and props. The audio recordings are later made available for home use by members.
