Die Nichte des Scientology-Führers David Miscavige packt aus! Jenna Miscavige Hill, die Nichte des Nachfolgers von Scientology-Gründer L. Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige, wuchs als Scientologin auf, verließ die kontrovers diskutierte Organisation aber im Jahr 2005. In ihrer Biographie enthüllt sie die befremdlichen und verstörenden Details ihrer Kindheit. Sie gibt einen erschütternden Einblick in ihre Erfahrungen als Mitglied der Sea Organization, das Machtzentrum von Scientology, und legt die Überzeugungen, Rituale und Geheimnisse einer Organisation offen, die bereits Hollywood-Stars wie Tom Cruise und John Travolta in ihren Bann gezogen hat. Sie erzählt, wie sie von ihrer Familie abgeschirmt wurde, und berichtet schließlich auch von ihrer mutigen Entscheidung, mit Scientology endgültig zu brechen.

The burden once put upon natural scientists is here shouldered by psychotherapists. This book asks whether psychotherapy can go beyond belief and gives various answers from a wide variety of people and their differing perspectives.'Whilst making a circuitous and muddled way through the dilemmas inherent in both the overlap and conflict between psychotherapy and religion, I read in one of Charles Rycroft's works of a book called The God I Want (1967) by James Mitchell. It comprised a series of short essays of the same title by analysts, authors, theologians and others describing their approach to religion and their own personal theology. It was thought provoking to read of the religious dilemmas faced by other people, as well as of how they had resolved them. However, whilst Rycroft's own contribution (as an analyst) to the book was very helpful, others drawn from fields outside psychoanalysis were less so. An additional problem was that Mitchell's publication was over thirty years old, no longer in print and rarely available.'Stimulated by my own personal experiences, I developed the idea to collate a series of similar and up-to-date essays written by psychiatrists, psychoanalysts and psychotherapists on the interaction between psychotherapy and religion. Perhaps in doing this I would come to understand how others with an overlapping interest in both psychotherapy and religion had come to decide on a way forward that was personally acceptable and satisfying.'- Samuel Stein, From the Introduction

Whether ghosts, astrology or ESP, up to 80 per cent of the population believes in one or more aspects of the paranormal. Such beliefs are entertaining, and it is tempting to think of them as harmless. However, there is mounting evidence that paranormal beliefs can be dangerous - cases of children dying because parents rejected orthodox medicine in favour of alternative remedies, and 'psychics' who trade on the grief of the bereaved for personal profit and gain. Expenditure on the paranormal runs into billions of dollars each year. In Beyond Belief: Skepticism, Science and the Paranormal Martin Bridgstock provides an integrated understanding of what an evidence-based approach to the paranormal - a skeptical approach - involves, and why it is necessary. Bridgstock does not set out to show that all paranormal claims are necessarily false, but he does suggest that we all need the analytical ability and critical thinking skills to seek and assess the evidence for paranormal claims.

In Beyond Belief, renowned religion scholar Elaine Pagels continues her groundbreaking examination of the earliest Christian texts, arguing for an ongoing assessment of faith and a questioning of religious orthodoxy. Spurred on by personal tragedy and new scholarship from an international group of researchers, Pagels returns to her investigation of the “secret” Gospel of Thomas, and breathes new life into writings once thought heretical. As she arrives at an ever-deeper conviction in her own faith, Pagels reveals how faith allows for a diversity of interpretations, and that the “rogue” voices of Christianity encourage and sustain “the recognition of the light within us all.”

Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare "high-character " superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a 4-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball. BEYOND BELIEF details the events that led up to the derailment. Josh explains how a young man destined for fame and wealth could allow his life to be taken over by drugs and alcohol. But it is also the memoir of a spiritual journey that breaks through pain and heartbreak and leads to the rebirth of his major-league career. Josh Hamilton makes no excuses and places no blame on anyone other than himself. He takes responsibility for his poor decisions and believes his story can help millions who battle the same demons. "I have been given a platform to tell my story" he says. "I pray every night I am a good messenger."
