An in depth and comprehensive story from Dianetics to a corporation seeking tax exempt status as a religion. This story could only be revealed in the age of the internet because the secrets of Scientology can not be hidden so well.
The cat is out of the bag.
The book seems well balanced and factual.
'Very entertaining and weird.
I thought my playback speed was set at 1.5x because the narration is so fast. Too fast.
For fans of Ehrman, "Ehrheads", this book covers themes from his lectures and earlier books: contextual criticism, versions the bible etc. with emphasis on the myth and culture at the time Jesus changed from man to a god. 'Compares Roman gods and the continuum from human to divinity and how this process compares to Jesus' ascension.
It can be tedious at times because of its academic nature and detail but if you want to get down to it, this is the real thing explained in his unbiased manner. Stunning thing: Jesus probably wasn't buried.
Life after death is something I love to read about. This "true" story held me at the beginning, with emotion and interest, but started to lose me in the belief factor somewhere midstream. I really hope that this is indeed true and not someone's wild imagination. Seemed almost ridiculous that a family member from the afterlife could communicate so easily, as I have been longing for this to happen to me for years. Truth is in the eyes of the beholder - I guess.
