  • Prisão da Fé - Cientologia, Celebridades e Hollywood é um livro de não-ficção sobre Cientologia, escrito pelo autor estadunidense Lawrence Wright e lançado em 2013. O livro contém entrevistas de atuais e ex-cientologistas, a história do fundador L. Ron Hubbard e seu líder atual David Miscavige, e análises das relações de Tom Cruise e John Travolta com a organização. Em uma entrevista com o The New York Times, Wright disse que "há um monte de pessoas por aí que eram do alto escalão da igreja e sabem muito sobre ela, e que se tornaram bastante eloquentes... Eu tenho muita sorte de estar por aqui numa época em que muitas dessas pessoas estão prontas para falar". Wright também declarou que vinha recebendo "inúmeras" cartas ameaçando-o com medidas judiciais por parte de advogados representantes da Cientologia e celebridades que pertencem a igreja. Wright conversou com duzentos atuais e ex-cientologistas para o livro. O título do livro em inglês, Going Clear, é uma referência a um estágio de desenvolvimento espiritual em Cientologia. No jargão da Cientologia, "Clear" significa um estado de um indivíduo ter livrado a si mesmo de "engramas", que membros acreditam ser "memórias subconscientes de traumas passados". Cientologistas passam por sessões de terapia chamadas "auditorias" como parte do processo de se tornarem Clear. Wright havia previamente escrito um perfil do ex-cientologista Paul Haggis para o The New Yorker. (pt)

Wright also disclosed that he has received "innumerable" letters threatening legal action from lawyers representing Scientology and celebrities who belong to it. Wright spoke to two hundred current and former Scientologists for the book. It was originally published in the United Kingdom by Transworld but is now being published by Silvertail, which may be because of legal pressure from the Church. The title of the book, Going Clear, is in reference to a stage of spiritual development in Scientology. In Scientology parlance, "Clear" means a state of having freed oneself from "engrams", which members believe are "subconscious memories of past trauma". Scientologists go through therapy sessions called "auditing" as part of the process of becoming Clear. Wright had previously written a profile of former Scientologist Paul Haggis for The New Yorker.
