Most recently, Scientology has been in news due to Tom Cruise being such a figure in the church.
Jenna Miscavige Hill is a former member of Scientology and she wasn't your average member. Hill is the niece of the church's leader, who was also the best man at Tom Cruise's wedding.
Hill walked away from the church and wrote a book, entitled "Beyond Belief." The book is about her experience growing up in the church, its secrets and why she got out of it.
