David Barton truly spells out the facts on Freemasonry and our Founding Fathers. I had heard so much misinformation in regard to this topic. It was nice to get the REAL facts. Recommend this to anyone who has questions about Freemasonry.

David Barton does not see the country though the eyes of a Freemason, and that shows in the book. However, I have viewed many of his videos and read many of his other works, and I like his work very much. His research is well done and complete. I respect the man and enjoy hearing from him.

David Barton has given more than enough footnotes from historical papers, letters to prove that the Masonry of our Founding Fathers is not the Masonry of today. Excellent book, well documented, undeniable.

I really respect David Barton and many of his writings, as I am a Christian and also a Free Mason.
However he does a good point of showing that Masonry typically was more oriented to Christian religion with prayers and ritual during the times of the Revolution. Despite the Deistic tone we are now accused of, not all Masons consider themselves this.
Masonry has stepped back to be more non-denominational, agreed, but nothing, nothing conflicts w/ anyone still being a Christian at home, in church or even in Lodge, if one were to say so.
His mistakes are accusing our God as some other made up deity, not knowing or ignoring the fact we still use the King James Bible, and reference it many times in prayer and ritual. It is obvious we stay strictly w/ the Old Testament.

The Titles of reverence for God we use and not just "The Grand Warden of Heaven" which may in fact be our own, are also ones used during the times of the 1700's when even Sermons had these Titles for God. Washington used them, a book Sacred Fire by Lillback, one that Barton so loves even states and proves Washington as a Christian, shows even he used such titles for God. In fact it's his book that shows sermons used them as well.

Masonry does not indoctrinate anyone w/ the teachings of Albert Pike, personally I think he's a loser, but we are a democratic organization/ fraternity and one is entitled to his own views.

But know this, we are talking about the same God, and shame on Barton for saying so.

I love anything written by David Barton. His books should be the ones taught in schools instead of the revisionist books now being used. David uses material from the Founder's own letters and documents and is well footnoted. 38 words

I have read several of Barton's books, and was pleased with all of them... Until this one. I have been a Master Freemason since 2005, and re-joined the Christian Church in 2010 (I was raised Presbyterian, but left after high school). Mr. Barton's knowledge of Freemasonry is exactly NIL, and the positions which he assumes based on his utter lack of knowledge are not only naive, but offensive. I recommend the several other volumes of his work which I have read, but not this book. If you'd like some history on Freemasonry, the "Dummies" and "Idiots" series both have volumes written by people who actually understand the subject matter.

The founders and freemasonry where an integral part of our new country. The ceremony and practices of the masons help strengthen the founders belief in God.
