Synopsis

Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org—the church's highest ministry, speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

In this tell-all memoir, complete with family photographs from her time in the Church, Jenna Miscavige Hill, a prominent critic of Scientology who now helps others leave the organization, offers an insider's profile of the beliefs, rituals, and secrets of the religion that has captured the fascination of millions, including some of Hollywood's brightest stars such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

    Eye Opening!

    I always figured that Scientology belonged in the 'kooky but harmless' category. However, after reading this book, I've learned there's little that's harmless about it. Jenna provides a fascinating insight into a very closed world. I really appreciated that for the most part, she simply stuck to describing her experiences and let the reader draw their own conclusions about the life inside the C of S.

    Interesting but detailed...

    The book overall is an interesting story providing an in-depth insight into scientology and the life of a Scientologist. I did however find I skipped some parts of the book because the level of detail it gave in relation to the day to day life of Jenna was tiresome and unnecessary at times.

    A different angle

    While a bit bogged down with day-to day detail in parts, this is a valuable view in being less about broader policy and more about day-to-day Scientology life than Inside Scientology or Going Clear. Ms. Miscavige Hill's voice as a writer is youthful but her enthusiasm carries the reader along.

    Wow.

    I can hardly believe that this story is real. Very eye opening. The writing isn't the greatest, but it was tolerable. I can't believe that people believe this stuff.
