Margot Teschabout this book: Why do we hold confidences and secrets? When we keep a secret we are usually protecting someone. But aren't we also at risk of hurting someone else?
The complexities of human behaviour fascinate me.
I held the secrets and confidences of two very powerful people, high in a religious organisation. Why had I done that?
Beyond Belief takes a raw honest look at the motives and implications of holding secrets. Though it is inspired by the events of my own life, it is written as a fast-paced easy-to-read narrative. This was my time to share those secrets after being gagged for decades.
This book will encourage you to think about the power we have to deny the truth, even when it is staring us in the face. Denial is almost unavoidable when we hold onto our beliefs too passionately.
As you travel Megan's journey you feel her pain as she wrestles with the contradictions she encounters while trying to find meaning and purpose in her life. All the while she is struggling to take control of her own unhealthy desires.
This book brings hope to those caught in extreme religions and those close to them. Perhaps you have never been involved in an extreme religion but wonder why individuals are drawn to them. Beyond Belief takes a frank and honest look at what motivates us to seek meaning in our life.
It is a book you will remember and ponder in the years to come.
