5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful new book, May 27, 2013
I was lucky enough to read an advance copy of this work. It is not just a well-written work, it is valuable to the education of every Freemason. I am better for having read this work and strongly encourage all Masons to do likewise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book - so it was taken from Cornerstone, December 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ancient and Modern InitiationThe edition of "Ancient and Modern Initiation" by Max Heindel (ISBN: 1475290721 Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform May 1, 2012) was taken from the Cornerstone Book Publishers edition (ISBN: 188756070X Publisher: Cornerstone Book Publishers September 1, 2007). The book is a good one, so I assume that others wanted to take the work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex by Design, December 31, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Have you ever read Pike's Report to Jefferson Davis"? This was his report to Davis during Pike's Civil War years. It was as clear as a bell and perfectly readable and understandable. Pike did not write his Masonic works in the complex, difficult to read way he did because he HAD to write that way. He wrote that way because it is the way he WANTED to write. It is the same with A.E. Waite. Waite writes in the same difficult manner, but even more condescending than Pike. This was because neither cared about selling books, they wanted to teach something and they wanted you to work for it. Neither were going to spoon feed education to anyone. The value of what they were teaching is one aspect, but the other aspect is how they delivered their message. In the case of Pike, he deliberately wanted you to focus completely on what he was writing and structured it in such a way as to make it as difficult as possible. Either you were going to work to understand what he wrote or you were going to toss it aside or misunderstand. It is just the way it is.

To read Pike and to compare him with an easy to read writer is the same as eating chocolate ice cream and then complain that it is not strawberry.

This book is a must for anyone who has a desire to know more about Pike's view of the philosophy of the early degrees of the AASR. But, fair warning, it takes some work and no one should expect anything but the "work for what you get" philosophy.

For another important Pike work, see: Readings XXXII: Instructions in the Thirty-Second Degree
