The book states that it will give light to the ones who ask for it. Anyone inside freemasonry will agree that the most important things are not really related to the hidden misteries this book reveals, but involve a very personal path into light. Going slowly step by step is part of the process, so going through it in a rush will be like flogging a dead horse.
Any brother looking for the Rituals for each degree and its lectures should look elsewhere.
There are many reasons why I am proud to own this book, and I am delighted to find material relating to The Templars (and other Monastic Fighting Orders) in this historical "expose'" of Freemasonry. I am also quite happy to finally find a book that mentions "The Odd Fellows." The author makes a bold claim, that he will "Teach Masonry to Masons." I also thank Amazon.com for their recommendation system, which inspired my girlfriend to send me this one as a surprise! If you are caught-up in the Templar-craze, check-out this historical work and measure fact with fiction. You will not be disappointed.
