Masonic Books To Read


By: C. Bruce Hunter & Andrew C. Ferguson

How Old Is The Masonic Ritual? Most believe the ritual was created in the 1700's, but these two Masonic writers suggest it's actually much older. Their book, based on material first published in noted Masonic journals, explores the novel idea that today's ritual is the legacy of events which occurred nearly a thousand years ago and began with a secret vision that melded ancient myth and Christian symbol. Once set in motion, this vision could not be stopped, but instead left a permanent mark on the world. It sent valiant knights to the Holy Land, gave a new genre to the world's literature, and produced a religious allegory that, centuries later, evolved into the modern ritual. Through extensive research, Hunter and Ferguson have uncovered a subtle trail of evidence leading from 12th century France, through the Scottish lowlands, and into the corridors of power in 18th century London. The result is the fascinating story of a spiritual legacy much older - and much richer - than most people realize.

The Everything Freemasons Book

The Everything Freemasons Book by by John K. Young and Barb Karg

For centuries, one organization has been rumored to control the destinies of men, cities, and even nations. That society is Freemasonry. Some say the Brotherhood dates back to the building of King Solomon’s Temple. Others say the genesis can be traced back to Knights Templar, guardians of the Holy Grail.

The Everything Freemasons Book is a great introductory book on the Brother-hood that examines all aspects of our society including:

  • Myths, legends, and stories of our ancient order
  • The closely guarded rituals, symbols, and esoteric arts
  • Who’s who of famous Freemasons
  • Enemies of Freemasonry And much more!
