i finished the book (it's small 96 pages.) so here's my impressions... The author of the book is a 33 degree Scottish Rite fellow. His knowledge of Masonry is pretty deep. He also understands a lot of the Qabbalah, which he ties the two together... he also has a pretty descent handle on Western Mystery schools (such as the Golden Dawn, ... See MoreMartinism, Rosicrucianism, etc.)

I think if a person opened the book with no idea of what the Qabbalah or Tree of Life is... they'd be very confused. He doesn't really explain even a rudimentary concept of what it's usefulness is as a symbol/image. For example, it might be a nice thing to preface to someone unfamiliar with the subject, "The tree of life can be a symbol of how we relate to the Divine. It can also be used to show how all forms of existence relate to each other." Instead he jumps right in. So if you are familiar with the Qabbalah, and a Freemason (or familiar with Freemasonry) it's easy to read through the book. If you aren't... it might be more challenging.

What I liked:
A. he does a great job of introducing the spiritual side of Freemasonry alongside other Western Mystery schools (The Golden Dawn, Martinist Orders, etc.)
B. His chapter on Gematria is wonderful - esp to a Mason, and/or Thelemite. Although he gives no info for Thelemites, Thelemites mightenjoy his analysis of certain terms such as the Gematria for "Let There Be Light". For Fellow Craft or Master Masons... his analysis of the number 1307 would be of interest. Very cool analysis on that.
C. His last page has a statement that should be on the first... "Ultimately, Qabbalah and Freemasonry are meant to be tools in aiding people in self discovery..."
D.

Another excellent book by Timothy Hogan with great explanations on how both the Qabbalistic Tree and Gematria apply to Masonic ritual and Biblical passages. This book is another must read for those on their philosophical journey, and required in any Masonic library.

I am a Freemason and I practice Masonry. I was an initiate of two well known Mystery Schools in the 80's and 90's when I lived in Chicago and Los Angeles. Now I am a small town Mason, and THE 32 PATHS OF SOLOMON is a fantastic synthesis of what I've learned in my past groups and what I've learned in my 3 Blue Lodge initiations! The old/new information about the 4th thru 10th spheres makes perfect sense to me. If you are a Mason who has dabbled or studied Qabbalah seriously, this little book is a treasure!

I again applaud Bro. Timothy Hogan for creating a book on Freemasonry that details the subject with clear and enjoyable grammar. Bro. Hogan's books are very well written and a pleasure to read. This is another work (along with the Alchemical Keys to Masonic Ritual) containing information I now consider vital to having a deeper understanding of the rituals. For any Mason wishing to enlarge his understanding through the "higher" degrees, this would be beneficial also. It did well in introducing me to this subject, and has sparked my interest in conducting more serious research into the rituals.

I'm not a freemason so I can only make some sense of the discussion. Evidently there are different interpretions and diliberate attempts at disinformation of the mysteries so confusion is part of the program. I understand that it is done to protect the truth from falling into undeserving hands. I think the author stretched into sacred territory and willingly shared his discovery. I commend him for publishing his findings and trying to be open. I hope my soul got something out of it because my outer mind didn't track. Of course, intellectual pursuit of ultimate reality is bland compared to actually experienceing it. I think the author is on to something.

Although this book contains interesting and helpful insights into the Kabbalah and its influence on the esoteric aspects of Freemasonry (particularly Scottish Rite), you may get lost without a basic foundation of understanding regarding the Kabbalah and its Sephirothic Tree of Life. For this, I recommend first reading, "Cabalah Primer," by Henrietta Bernstein. Bernstein's book is a very easy read.

Okay, so let me start this review by saying I don't personally know the author. While that shouldn't have to be said review of new Masonic books sometimes ( a lot of times) are done by men and women who personally know the author and want to give him/her a good review. Go and look up recent Masonic publications on Amazon, and you will see what I mean. The problem is that today, most anyone can publish either through an e-book or through hard copy. So I believe I am as impartial as they come when it comes to this review.

The Book "32 Secret Path of Solomon A New Examination of the Qabbalah in Freemasonry" written by Bro Timothy Hogan is a quick primer and look at potential applications of the Qabbalah in Freemasonry. Bro. Hogan wrote in the introduction:

"Within Freemasonry itself, in the fourth degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite (SJ), we are likewise taught that qabbalah is the key to Freemasonry, and in fact, Freemasonry cannot be understood unless one has at least a preliminary understanding of qabbalah."

I was drawn to this book, as more and more books coming out about Freemasonry concern themselves with an historic account or accuracy of our Craft. Either within a specific time period (Civil War, French Revolution, etc) or trying to explain the reality of the events depicted in our rituals as being either historic or rather "Masonic Tradition". This book refreshingly does not attempt any of that, rather to give the reader the basic tools and understanding of the qabbalah in regards to western esoteric thought. The challenge the author had is that qabbalahism is one of the most studied and written aspects of the Hebrews, and is very complex.
