Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Non-Fiction, 2014

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, 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.

Excellent description of Sea Organization

I've read a few books by now regarding Scientology, listened to a bunch of podcasts and watched a few documentaries.. However, this book stood out to me, not only because it paints a very clear picture about the inner workings of Scientology and the Sea Organization, but also because everything she lived was incredibly interesting. I was listening to this expecting to uncover a bit more about the Miscavige family, but got sucked in by the harrowing details of her life, which could easily be turned into an incredible movie.

On of my pet peeves when reading or listening to someone's side of a story is that it often feels biased, twisted or exaggerated... however, I couldn't find an ounce of anything that might of felt distorted. This an honest recounting of her own story and will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire book.

Wonderful book!

This woman is powerful. Even if it was all that she had known all her life she knew it wasn’t right. I cannot believe this kind of organization is still active today.

Her early life story is very shocking but it was interesting to get a view from the inside.

The narration is the best I have ever experienced. She won prizes and she deserves them!

Eye opener

‘Harrowing’ is a little bit of an over statement, but interesting story nonetheless. Worth the read.
