Who were Tubalcain, Jabal and Jubal and what is their significance for the Freemason?
There is a general interest in the rituals of Freemasonry, generated in part by the apparently obscure references they contain.
This is the only book that offers a guide to the stories used in Masonic ritual and their links to the Bible and Christianity.
The new Mason is directed to a `serious contemplation of the Volume of the Sacred Law' - but that is easier said than done without a grounding in the Scriptures, something that fewer and fewer people have.
The historical and geographical setting of the Bible is explained here, making such contemplation easier for Mason and non-Mason alike. Mike Neville has systematically cross-referenced the most influential Chapters of the Bible to the ceremonies.
It is his intention to get Freemasons to understand the ritual - not just to memorise and regurgitate - as well as to elucidate for the non-Mason.
Sacred Secrets will aid the clergy, theologians and any other person interested in Freemasonry to see the links between ritual and scripture.
