Hodapp fairly and accurately discusses the history of Freemasonry in America, the lives of many important early American Freemasons, and the building of our nation. He also does a good job breaking down many misconceptions about Masonry, both pro and anti. Hodapp cuts through much of the romanticism and lays out documented facts. The illustrations in the book make it that much better.
I consider this one of the top books ever written about Freemasonry in Colonial America.
Arrived very quickly and well packaged.
While I cringed heavily at the first few pages, it's honestly all information that has been publicly available nearly as long as it has existed, I found rest of the text informative. While most of it was a refresher, some of it was new to me such as an anti-Masonic climate when Bro. Franklin was younger (something I need to look into more out of personal curiosity).
For me this text was a fairly quick read and absolutely worth every cent. Both Brothers and non-Masons will find it to be worth their time and money!
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.
A "must have" for anyone's library. The "secrets" of our capital & city...they're in here. Unfortunaly, not
what "conpiracy therorists" talk about.
A good book about the dedication, time, & hardships that went into building Washington D.C.
This is a very good book to share with anyone interested in our capitol's history...& what is ther now.
Worth the price!
