Very nice Bible Jul 9, 2008
I received this Bible when I was raised. It is a very nice gift Bible, and does have sections in it dealing with Masonic ties to the Bible. That said, it is a King James version, and is not really a "study" Bible, so if you take it to Bible study you may find you are in the minority as most folks seem to not use the KJ version anymore. I DO wish it had more "study aides" in it, such as red-letter, footnotes, illustrations, etc. But that aside, I like it.
Great bible Feb 28, 2008
I love this bible I might go and purchase another as one for church and one for home.
A Must for the Master Mason Nov 4, 2006
I purchased this shortly after receiving my 3rd degree a few months ago and am so glad that I did. It provides a good introduction to Masonry and the descriptions of the York Rite and Scottish Rite are very good for the new Mason. I also like the concordance and the index that is tied to scriptures that relate to Masonry.
Binding, Record Pages, Masonic Info, No Pictures or Maps Mar 21, 2006
In some Masonic Jurisdictions it has become the custom to present a new Mason with a Masonic Bible at his raising to the sublime degree of Master Mason. This seems to be one most used.
This Masonic Bible has the King James Version as the text. The faux leather blue binding has an imprint of the Masonic Symbol on the spine and front cover. As they should be, neither the Bible Text or the brief Concordance supplied are pecularly Masonic.
Those in Jurisdictions that forbid the publishing of the Grand Master's Name need not fear possession of this Bible. Only those whose Jurisdiction prohibits the possession of any Masonic Bible need be concerned, although no material revealing ritual or Masonic Secrets are present.
There is a Presentation Plates, not necessarily Masonic, and Record Pages for Blue Lodge, Scottish Rite and York Rite. The specifically Masonic Material found at the front covers briefly information that newly raised Master Masons may find helpful, though the writing style is of an older era.
There are no pictures, or drawings of events surrounding the building of the Temple, as are present in other Masonic Bibles this reviewer has seen.
It will do, but it is to be hoped that the owner of this Masonic Bible has access to a Bible Translation that he does not need to have translated into contemporary English, and more readable, and complete sources of Masonic Information.
Beautiful Bible - Great Masonic Gift. Jan 27, 2002
Beautiful gift Bible. I was extremely pleased to be able to purchase this item through this site.com & be able to receive it in a timely manner as a gift to my husband on his initiation, and later to be used in 3rd degree. A treasure.
