Solomon's Builders covers the history and influence of Freemasonry in the founding of the United States and links the institution firmly within the enlightenment ideals that were spreading like wildfire around the globe; largely spread through Masonic lodges dispensing their own form of democracy and equality in every land.
This book is being marketed in hopes of taking advantage of the hype that will likely surround Dan Brown's next book 'Solomon's Key'. I can only encourage every person who reads Browns next work of fiction to turn to RWB Hodapp's well documented non-fiction presentation of the real story behind the myth.
If novels about masonry are leaving you wondering about Freemasonry, then read "Solomon's Builders" for reliable information.
He covers the founding of Freemasonry in the USA, as well as the Masonic influences (and addressing of some conspiracies) in the framing of the US government and establishment of the Capitol City, Washington DC.
This book is not a difficult read, and easily digested.
It can serve as a good starting point for historians and Masons interested in the origin of The Craft in the USA as well.
This book is an excellent read. I recommend it highly to Masons and non-Mason alike. It's well-worth the price.
