This awesome book is a must for all Master Mason's and those brethren currently on their journey! This book helps one realize that only with the full explanation of the symbols, allegories, and true meanings of the Craft revealed, will the Craft rise up to it's sublime greatness once more. The book also helps one to realize that the Craft is to mean more than ancient rituals and "secret" tokens and passes, it is a true spiritual journey and rebuilding of man whithin himself...in which good men are made better!

A fantastic book written more than 100 years ago but still relevant today. Wilmshurst digs into the deeper meaning of Freemasonry in an easy to read volume. Tremendous information for the Entered Apprentice and the Master Mason. Much to think about and discuss with your brothers. The real meanings of Masonry as a Fraternity are developed and explained. One of the essential books for every Freemason.

For many Masons, they enter the lodge, are given the three degrees and then treat it as a men's club. For others, they seek the deeper wisdom contained within the degrees. The are the Gnostics, the seekers of knowledge. For them, this book is a great help and brings deeper insights. I recommend this book.

Great content, but a little dry and too wordy. The vocabulary is good but about half way through you start to think the author is just one of those guys who likes to pontificate with large words just to try and convince others he is the smartest guy in the room.

Not a terrible book, was just expecting a little more...no book is going to reveal any "secrets" regarding Masonry but was hoping for more knowledge about something...

Very good book that delves into the hidden meanings within the allegories associated with the degree work. Very interesting.

I teach a course on the history of Witchcraft at a local esoteric shop, and this book was invaluable to my research. Wilmhurst assumes that the reader already has some background in Masonry, so I don't recommend this as a first-read to anyone just beginning to learn about either Masonry or the Mysteries. However, for any serious student of the occult, mysticism, magick, Witchcraft, Masonry or the Mystery traditions, this book is an excellent find. All of the bits and pieces of information I've picked up over the years concerning Masonry make a great deal more sense now.

Concerning Wilmhurst's writing style: on a few occasions I had to go back and re-read a passage to catch the meaning, but didn't find the author's language problematic, as some reviewers have complained. However, this book is adapted from a series of lectures, so I will forewarn that it can be repetitive. Overall, I found that the content of the author's material far outweighed the somewhat unfamiliar writing style.
