Ruth Minshull was a writer of Scientology also. She produced a number of books that were very well received, even sold with the approval of the Founder, Lafayette Ron Hubbard. Since his demise these books have stopped being promoted by the Church. However they are a great introduction to the world of scientology and how it can be applied in everyday life.Ruth Minshull
According to the "Pilot"
"Sometime around 1980, give or take a year or two, they pulled her stuff out of the Scientology bookstores. This was at the time of the great purges and power strugles in the Church.
The pretended reason was that her books contained out-tech. In practice, it was only that some things had changed a bit and the books were slightly out of date. They certainly don't pull Hubbard's books out of the bookstores even though the processes are no longer current.
Really they were just eliminating another opinion leader who might make trouble. She was, after all, the only other author of technical Scientology books that was still being sold in the org bookstores at that time and people might have listened if she complained about some of the things that were going on.
The 3 later books seem to be things that were innocuous enough to keep her from getting in trouble while trying to make some money as a writer."
Ruth Minshull keeps a low profile these days. She is still alive and very well living in Ann Arbor.
