Scientology–An Overview

By Nick Broadhurst: I am often asked by tertiary [college or university] religious students who are trying to write an overview on Scientology, what is the most successful way we have of expanding Scientology. What is it that expands our membership? "Just give a quick overview." The answer to this question is always the same. Scientology expands mostly by word of mouth.
