There are various reviewers who claim that the author did not really hold the Blue, Scottish Rite, Eastern Star, and Shriner offices claimed, but the level of detail in this book suggests that the author had a tremendous amount of information on all these groups. This book is well written, and does expose a number of secrets, including a description of the 33rd level initiation ceremony. I read it primarily to gain an understanding of how Masonic "theology" fits with Christian theology. Some eye openers for me:

-To be inducted into the Shriners a candidate must acknowledge that Mohammed is the true prophet (now all those Arabic symbols connected with the Shrine make perfect sense), and their Fez is symbolic of a "great victory" for Islam when in 1465 when residents of Fes killed thousands of Jews, reportedly leaving less than a dozen alive. The folks riding around in Fes hats in circles in those little cars seem much less amusing now.

-In highly disciplined lodges, the name of Christ is rarely if ever spoken, and in general the Bible, Koran, Buddhist, and other sacred texts are all placed at equal weight. This should be a problem for Christians who take scripture seriously and understand that Mohammed states in the Koran (S. 4:157-158) that the resurrection of Jesus did not happen. Either Mohammed or Jesus is mistaken. The book also documents well the peer pressure that plays a role in moving a Christian to make blood and death oaths that are clearly forbidden in the Bible.

-Very chilling is a comment overheard by the author when another 33rd level candidate expressed satisfaction that he was told that he would be "going higher" in Masonry after he professed disdain for ever becoming a Christian.

This is a great book for those (Especially Christians) who want to enter this lying and decieving organization. As a former York Rite Freemasonry myself, it is about time Freemasonry was/is exposed for what it truly is:Devil worshipping and pagan in origin. Great Job Bro. Shaw!!!

How can Christians remain tethered to this blasphemous religion of Masonry? On page 84 Jim Shaw writes; " Albert Mackey wrote (in the Masonic Ritualist), "Thus the trestleboard (blueprint for life) of the Jew is the Old Testament, of the Mohammedan the Koran; the Veda Scriptures of Hinduism and the writings of Baha-ullah are just as good as the Word of the Christians' God, for the fact is that all religions are never as good as the pure teachings of Freemasonry."

Masonry teaches that Jesus is no greater than the other "exemplars" of history (such as Mohammed, Buddah, Aristotle, or Joseph Smith). Page 94

33-degree Jim Shaw walked away from Freemasonry one day, after participating in a a Mason Maudy Thursday "black communion" ceremony in his Scottish Rites Temple in Florida. Participants of this ceremony are required to refer to Jesus as an "apostle of mankind who was neither inspired or divine". They then proceed to mock Jesus further by enacting a strange "black communion" ceremony. Pages 105-107

Another great book I highly recommend by another ex-Mason is "Masonry Beyond the Light". In his book Masonry "Beyond the Light", William Schnoebelen (now a saved Christian) talks about his experiences as first a Satanist and then a Mason who passed through nearly all the Mason Degrees, including some that American Masons are unaware of; such as degrees in Masonry like the Egyptian rites of Masonry and the Paladin. During his initiation into Palladium Masonry William sadly admits to standing with Masons, some who were also satanists and chanting; "Glory and Love for Lucifer! Hatred! Hatred! Hatred! to God accursed! accursed! accursed!". He says that hashish provides some of their "illumination", taking after the 1st "Illuminati" 18th century Mason Adam Weishaupt.

Format: Paperback
The old saying, "An imbecile child with one good eye is a better authority for the existence of color than a roomful of blind PhDs," holds true here. Outside of this book, I know nothing of Shaw or his reliability, but his story is not only credible, but poignant - and corroborated by other former Freemasons who got out AND are still alive (not all are). The authors detail how this organization is not at all Christian, though it wears the guise of morality and does some good for society. Instead it is predominantly clandestine and defiles the conscience when confronting the law and Christ's commands and standards. "Taking an oath to assassinate any fellow-freemason who tries to leave that organization" is by no stretch kind, loving, compassionate, or even the fruit of a rational mind. Being coerced to take such an oath is not only demonic, but outright defiant of Christ's command. Another excellent source is Oberlin College president Charles Finney's book noted at this review's close. His objective expose includes an excerpt from a letter by George Washington, disavowing any supposed (although Freemason-asserted!) adult relationship with that lodge. So, regarding Truth, "seek and you shall find" may involve an extended search, but the end reward is worth it.The Character, Claims and Practical Workings of Freemasonry
