The Religion of L. Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology: The Cult of Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Lisa-Marie Presley by Robert Alan King

The Religion of L. Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology: The Cult of Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Lisa-Marie Presley by Robert Alan King is a booklet with over 5,600 words. It explores the religious tenants of the Church of Scientology to arrive at a basic understanding of what they believe. Though the book also sometimes conveys the contrasting beliefs of Christianity, the real focus is on understanding the theology of Scientology itself. In addition, King briefly explains what Scientology is and then discusses whether or not Scientology is a cult. The book mentions some famous Scientologists such as Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, John Travolta, Lisa-Marie Presley, and Paul Haggis, but this is only in reference to actions or claims that are relevant to the theology of Scientology. Robert Alan King is an ordained minister through Calvary Chapel.

I was just curious to know about this religion. I hear so many things about it good and bad. I thought it did a a good job explaning the fundamentals. I prob will have to buy another book to find out about scientology more. A more indepth book about it cause this book only had 38 pages.

I found this slim volume to be very informative. If you want to know the basic tenants to Scientology, this is the book for you. From reading this book I easily understood why celebrities are drawn to the teachings of L.Ron Hubbard.
