Description

Tom Cruise and John Travolta say the Church of Scientology is a force for good. Others disagree. Award-winning journalist John Sweeney investigated the Church for more than half a decade. During that time he was intimidated, spied on and followed and the results were spectacular: Sweeney lost his temper with the Church's spokesman on camera and his infamous 'exploding tomato' clip was seen by millions around the world. In THE CHURCH OF FEAR Sweeney tells the full story of his experiences for the first time and paints a devastating picture of this strange organisation, from former Scientologists who tell heartbreaking stories of families torn apart and lives ruined to its current followers who say it is the solution to many of mankind's problems. This is the real story of the Church by the reporter who was brave enough to take it on.

    I've been fascinated by the Church of Scientology for years. My interest increased dramatically after seeing Panorama's Scientology and Me documentary in 2007 and the follow up a few years later. John Sweeney should be commended for his bravery and keeping his composure as long as he did. Many would have snapped with weasel faced Tommy Davis constantly up in their face! I know I would have! This book covers the making of the 2 documentaries as well as in depth interviews with several ex COS members including Sea Org members and celebrities. It is truly compelling reading and I was gutted when I finished it! I can't wait to see what happens next in the Sweeney vs Scientology mind bending saga! Well done John Sweeney and shame on you, the 'Church' of Scientology.
