- The real subject of this book is about truth and how we find it.
It begins with a public debate over one of the most unique individuals of the twentieth century: The spiritual rebel Paul Twitchell. Digging for the truth behind accusations of cover-up and fraud unravels a pattern of imagined plots developed from rumors that were promoted for more than twenty years.
The whole story blows open a window onto the spiritual conflicts of our age. It shows the fierce battles that develop over new religions because of their power to change lives; the tactics used to sway public opinion against religious groups; and the challenge of finding truth in our modern age of media authorities. The Whole Truth
then travels deep into the authenticity of spiritual teachings that are based on personal experience and individuality rather than fixed ways of thinking, and the problem seekers must face with public opinion in their search for truth.
In an age when the Western world has come to expect disillusionment from every public figure, this book tells a different story. It demonstrates how open and respectful dialogue restores confidence and acts as an antidote to the endless stream of half truths displayed in public criticism. It shows how belief based in personal study and direct experience can be relied upon, while exposes, if we are not careful, can lead us farther from the truth they claim to expose.
