This is an anthology of 18 short essays by some of the finest Masonic scholars and writers. The material is straightforward and represents a broad look at Freemasonry by famous Masonic authors and historians. This is none of the sensational and nonsensical that we often find. Everything is orthodox, as you would expect from men who love the craft, it's history, ritual, brotherhood and objectives. I know of no better book to acquaint a beginning student with authors who may be relied upon to make a presentation that is correct and well thought out. I didn't enjoy all of the essays, but that would be too much to ask. This book was my main source to enable me to build a personal library as a new Mason. I'm pleased to recommend it to any man beginning a study with the intent to learn, in depth, the rudiments of Masonic thought and research. I still refer to it even though my Masonic library is starting to take shape.
A good readed
