The full color/black and white pictures are excellent.
Noble Sir
I concur that Masonry is not a religion, but it does reinforce my Christian beliefs, as well as those other religions we have in our Lodge.

Illustrations included in this book are very comprehensive and is a great centerpiece for any masonic library.

I am a Master Mason and also a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason so feel qualified to give an opinion, recognizing that other may not share my viewpoint.

Masonry is not for everybody, but this book goes a long way to tell the story in a manner that many non-Mason's can understand. There is very little these days that is "secret" and our Lodge is very open, even having its installations open to the public.

I concur that Masonry is not a religion, but it does reinforce my Christian beliefs, as well as those other religions we have in our Lodge.

This is a good book, not perfect, but well worth having and reading. I am enjoying reliving much of what I learned along the way and seeing how Masons around the globe work.

I recommend this book to those wanting to know more about this great Fraternity, home to many generations of Americans, including a large number of our founding Fathers.

I would recommend this publication to particularily any new Mason or someone considering applying, as being the most complete overview of the brotherhood of Masonry I have found. It would also certainly be beneficial to some of those who have been in Masonry for awhile as a "rusty nail training" piece. The pictures and diagrams included in it are excellent quality accurately describing the rich heritage of the society. While it explains very well historical operative masonry to modern day speculative practice the author is careful to preserve the secrets within the degrees.

I was originally on the fence as to whether I was going to purchase this book or not, but it was the negative reviews which finally sold it to me. During my short 34 years on the earth, I have seen over and over again that the less people understand something, the more they will try to degrade it, and based on the ignorant opinions stated, I assumed it must be a wonderful book. It is true that the book is mostly pictures. That is because the entirety of Freemasonry is based on symbolism. MacNulty doesn't give the "deep hidden meanings" behind the symbols because except for a general description given at the time of initiation, it is up to the individual to formulate his own meanings behind the symbols. This is an excellent book which gives a concise, accurate history of Freemasonry and an astounding library of paintings and photos.

Format: Hardcover
As a Master Mason living in a country where Masonry doesn't publicly exist (China), I am always trying to find ties and ways to reenforce the Masonic learning I had when I was raised. This book is not the greatest for in-depth research, but is very comprehensive and, I feel, well organized. But that's not a reason to buy it. This is a cofee table book with lavish photography and illustrations that make it worth every penny of its purchase price. Illustrations included in this book are very comprehensive and is a great centerpiece for any masonic library.
