I wouldn't recommend that book. If you'd like a factual, well-researched look at the masonic significance of the District, I'd recommend Solomon's Builders by Chris Hodapp (who also wrote Freemasons for Dummies). I can't comment on the DVD, since the link was broken.

Ok, I'm on a trow-away/bug-me-not account too, and after reading this whole thead (and even commenting as I read it) I'm going vote this to be a TROLL. I too am a Past Master (in Indiana), and he is leaving out a lot of the ritual that is not posted all over the internet.

Then I visited the link that he keeps peddling (emfj.org), and he has never mentioned the wording of the Bible lecture. Also, he has not mentioned something that is mentioned in ritual too: "By the exercise of Brotherly Love we are taught to regard the whole human species as one family, the high and low, the rich the poor; who, as created by one Almighty Parent and inhabitants of the same planet, are to aid, support and protect each other. On this principle Masonry unites men of every country, sect and opinion and conciliates true friendship among those who might otherwise have remained at a perpetual distance."

For more details you can check out Chris Hodapp's book Freemasonry for Dummies. He is a Past Master from Broad Ripple Lodge in Indiana.

Here is what I read prior to joining Declarations of Priciples -- Indiana.

I'm going back to the ritual. I've got to brush up a bit for the MM degree on Wednesday (that us PMs have to put on). Hope to see the other Reddit Brothers there!

Anyway, I wish all of you the best, and I apologize to the everyone for the username that bug-me-not has blessed me with today. For a long time I kept getting "ReverseRacism".

As far as a general overview, I think that Freemasonry for Dummies is still a rather good example without spoiling too much.

I'm hesitant to recommend any books on Masonic symbolism because, well, that would spoil too much.

part of what's interesting about it is, though, is that's it's been around for a few centuries... and from my own experience - not without reason.

BTW - if you (unlikely) can't find a Masonic Temple near you, check out Freemasons for DUMMIES at your local library

(always been a fan of all the FOR DUMMIES series, BTW, regardless of the topic)
