The Masonic Myth: Unlocking the Truth About the Symbols, the Secret Rites, and the History of Freemasonry The Masonic Myth: Unlocking the Truth About the Symbols, the Secret Rites, and the History of Freemasonry

by Jay Kinney

Book Reviews

"The excitement of a thriller with the benefit of being factual. This is real-life (as opposed to 'reality') Freemasonry. And it's a great story!"
--Jim Tresner, 33°, Grand Cross, book review editor, The Scottish Rite Journal

"There has been a definite surge of curiosity and interest in Freemasonry, and, along with it, a profusion of ideas as to its purpose and motives. Jay Kinney, a well-known writer and researcher in esoteric traditions, and a Freemason, is an author the reader can trust to deliver a balanced perspective on things that often seem hidden."
--Robert G. Davis, 33°, Grand Cross

Online Reviews

"Former Gnosis editor-in-chief Kinney knows his esoteric traditions. In The Masonic Myth he does a great job of sharing a whole lot of never-before-seen inside stuff in an easily understood way. There is a lightness to Kinney's writing here, despite a topic that seems often to move towards the dark. He keeps things in perspective, even while he helps us do the same." 
--January Magazine 

"The Masonic Myth: Unlocking the Truth about the Symbols, The Secret Rites, And the History of Freemasonry is a fabulous look into the true world of Freemasonry." 
--Suite 101 

"Kinney's book is an example of how to present an objective discourse on something, using valid arguments. He does it time and again, drawing from verifiable fact gleaned from reputable sources. He puts the facts together with logic (a basic tool of reasoning that is normally abused or absent altogether in today's culture). A person reading this book can experience what proper analysis is." 
--Mind Connection 

"Jay Kinney has a new book called the Masonic Myth that hopes to burst the conspiracy bubble. It lays out the history, the activities and the future of the Masons." 
--Books are my Only Friends 

"Brother Kinney does a great job breaking down the 'Myth' even going so far as to give a play by play of the degree ceremonies all the while never revealing the 'secrets' we have obligated ourselves to. It is a good background book for those wanting to learn about allot of things about Freemasonry in a short amount of time." 
--The North Eastern Corner

"This book opened my eyes wider than I thought possible." 

"Kinney's book is lucid and well-informed and comes with informative and often charming period illustrations." 
--True Small Caps Blog
". . . if you want a book that gives the truth and strips away fantasy, The Masonic Myth is it." 
--Book Pleasures
