“Imagine Masonic Education that ‘Builds Better Builders!’ Better yet, imagine receiving that Education!”
– Dr. John S. Nagy

Masonry is the Art and Science of Building. Blue Lodge Masonic Education programs teach Masons very little about “how to Build.”

The Building Series helps create a clearer and cleaner understanding of what is required to Build Better Builders.

Each book reveals:

  • Important Connections Between and Within each of the Blue Lodge Degrees
  • Specific Work, Its Basis and Supporting Backgrounds

    Tampa Bay, Florida - November 2017

    Within a relatively few years of pursuing Masonic Light, Brother John S. Nagy has made many astounding discoveries. His methodical approach to decoding Craft Ritual & Lore continually provides ample proof that his written offerings are well-worth exploring by Craft members new and old.

    John’s persistent efforts constantly reveal many new insights into Craft mysteries. In this latest book, he delves deeply into the Hiramic Legend’s symbols, allusions, and metaphors, gathering and securing source information from many diverse directions not explored till now. Brother Nagy presents many sound and commonsense ritual connections that have remained unknown and hidden for nearly three centuries, even from well-informed members of the Society.

    The Brotherly Discourses found within this writing disclose profound insights into Hiram’s name, His Denials and His Raising, the Ruffian’s Names, the Grips and the Penalties, the Widow and her son, the Master’s Word, What was Lost and Its Substitute, and so much more.

    This is your opportunity to experience in depth Discourse between learned Brothers about the Temple Legend and its lessons. You will be whelmed and delighted by its Light.

    The Uncommon Origin of Freemasonry

    Author Note:

    The Craft Unmasked is an exploration into the Origins of the Craft as it is Practiced today by the Society of Free & Accepted Masons. It is a direct result of the work surrounding the Building Better Builders series of Uncommon Masonic Education books.

    The Craft Unmasked takes a different direction from what has been focused upon in the series. Prior to this book, the focus of the series has been mainly upon Recognizing and Understanding the symbols and concepts presented within Freemasonic Ritual, their basis and Applying them toward Bettering one’s life, alomng with how some very important words used within the Freemasonic Organization have changed over time.

    Unlike most things that are Masonic, where the focus is put forth Allegorically, this book delves into the Craft itself, where it originated and how it evolved to what we have today.

    Fraternally & Sincerely,

    Dr. John S. Nagy

    Tampa Bay, Florida - December 2014

    The Society of Free & Accepted Masons, which is better known to the world as The Freemasons, has been in existence for nearly three centuries. Since their official public beginning, they have spread their Craft to every country on the face of the earth, except for within those territories whose suspicious totalitarian governments outlaw them. Society members include some of the most powerful men of their time. Yet, most do not know what the origin of the organization truly is or how to accurately describe what members do.

    By applying Masonic Forensics to existing Craft evidence, Brother John S. Nagy carefully fossicked through and found long ignored Craft Light. His findings lift away the many Masterfully placed Masks that have concealed Masonry’s true origin since it first became known to the public. Through his work,

    The Craft UNMASKED!
    The UNCOMMON ORIGIN of FREEMASONRY
    and its PRACTICE,

    John invites you into the cleverly hidden world of Freemasonry and reveals the origin of the Society and what its true Craft is. It is history of which even its members remain blissfully unaware. That is, until now.

    Dr. Nagy’s book contains:

    • The True Origin of the Craft.
    • Exploration into the History of the Craft, the first man to Practice the Craft and his connection to the Goat and to the Point within the Circle.
    • What The Craft actually is and how it is Practiced today.
    • What is actually Developed and Cultivated within Craft Members.
    • What the Craft does for every man who goes through the Blue Lodge Experience.
    • Critical connections, ideas and concepts that help you better your Craft Practice.

    And, as usual, Insights and Light on the Challenges that all Brothers face in Cultivating a better Understanding of the Craft overall. Provided too are Thought-provoking development questions and exercises designed to stir and support your Skills and Masonic Transformations. Invaluable fodder for Masonic Discourse between Brothers within the Lodge and without. Assorted Masonic Ciphers and other information intended to challenge, delight and support the concepts Masons need in their Work. And much more...

    Dr. Nagy provides you with yet another interesting, entertaining and thought-provoking book to improve, strengthen and support your Freemasonic awareness and clarity. He shares key information and insights that will help you better understand how facets of the Blue Lodge Experience fit together to help you in all your present and future Building efforts.

    Author Note:

    The Craft Perfected is an exploration into the Perfect Ashlar use within the Craft, also known as the Society of Free & Accepted Masons. It is a direct result of the work surrounding the Building Better Builders series of Uncommon Masonic Education books.

    The Craft Perfected takes a different direction from what has been focused upon in the series. Prior to this book, the focus of the series has been mainly upon Recognizing and Understanding the symbols and concepts presented within Freemasonic Ritual, their basis and Applying them toward Bettering one’s life, along with how some very important words used within the Freemasonic Organization have changed over time.

    Unlike most things that are Masonic, where the focus is put forth Allegorically, this book delves into the reality of the Perfect Ashlar, when it first appeared within Ritual and what was intended for Craft members by its use.

    Fraternally & Sincerely,

    Dr. John S. Nagy

    Tampa Bay, Florida - October 2019

    The Perfect Ashlar is used symbolically to denote perfection within The Society of Free & Accepted Masons – better known as The Freemasons. This symbol is a recent innovation to the Freemasonic Craft. It is interwoven within the Craft’s degrees, lore, and literature with opinions and descriptions unsupported by Stonecraft. The Perfect Ashlar replaced a stone more appropriate for building sound structures. As a result of this innovation, the teachings surrounding it have wreaked havoc upon generations of Freemasons who were inappropriately taught that they would never live up to its ideal. Research tells us that it was never meant to be this way!

    Coach Nagy investigates over three hundred years of Craft documents to reveal hidden treasures of Light associated with the Masonic quest for Perfection. His findings reveal: When the Perfect Ashlar was inserted into Ritual and which Ashlar it replaced, What the Operative Craft tells us about it, and The Liberties that Freemasonic authors took when they insert it into Ritual.

    Through his work, The Craft PERFECTED! - Actualizing Our Craft, John takes you through a series of deep Masonic rabbit holes, tracking down the history of The Perfect Ashlar, its true meaning, and the impact its meaning will have on future generations of Masons. Brace yourself for a page-turning inquiry suitable to what the Builders of the Organization intended for its members from its beginning.

    Dr. Nagy’s book contains:

    • The Intended Meaning behind the Perfect Ashlar
    • Exploration into the Perfect Ashlar's Lore and History
    • What Stone that the Perfect Ashlar replaced in Ritual
    • Upon what the Perfect Ashlar is supposed to focus Craft Members
    • The Transformation the Perfect Ashlar points toward when Perfecting Work is done
    • Critical connections, ideas and concepts that help you better your Craft Practice.

    And, as usual, Insights and Light on the Challenges that all Brothers face in Cultivating a better Understanding of the Craft overall. Provided too are Thought-provoking development questions and exercises designed to stir and support your Skills and Masonic Transformations.

    Preface

    This writing reflects many years of personal & professional deliberation upon the story told in chapters two and three of the book of Genesis. This book is a fourth complete rewrite of what I first penned over thirty years ago but never published. I was not a published author at that time and I stumbled into writing it quite by accident.

    My interest in writing this book was to share the original nuances in the story that have remained unknown to many of those readers who have relied upon whatever translation they chose to settle upon. Consequently, many readers of the Eden story have never had the opportunity to understand the depth of the tale or all the revelations it provides. Therefore, this entire book explores The Word between the words.

    I do not claim to be a biblical expert in any way. This was not the intent of this book’s writing. In my early years, I chose to seek the truth and wisdom in such writings without investing heavily in their concrete factualness. I found that arguing for or against such things took me away from what I could learn from them. I have faith that you’ll be led to whatever Light you need.

    Therefore, my focus in this book is upon the meaning and relevance of such texts rather than upon their historical concreteness; treating the text as a strict allegory where revealing truth, and not fact, is the aim. With this Light and intent, I’m led to state quite succinctly that the story told within these Genesis chapters reveals truth, even more so today than ever. It reflects the true will-filled nature of humankind, especially in Western civilizations, contrasted to its collective experience of God.

    I have taken great pains to neutrally present this writing, focusing my efforts on not conveying the factualness of the story but only on sharing the truths revealed by it. I know that I have fallen short of my goals in some areas and I thank you ahead of time for your forgiveness of these lacks.

    Many of my friends who have read the original manuscript of this book commented on my harsh analysis of two of the main characters, Adam and Eve. A few of my screeners said I should look at Adam and Eve as naive children and be less critical in my evaluation of their behavior. My response to these comments is that it is true that I was relentless in my evaluation. My choice to be relentless is especially true if you hold to the belief that irresponsible people (such as I consider Adam and Eve to have been) should be allowed to continue along the same path of irresponsibility unchecked no matter what effect their behavior has upon others or themselves. Most readers shall hopefully gather that I do not hold their behavior in high regard - figuratively or literally. Hence, one might easily conclude that I haven’t been relentless enough.

    Regardless of my care to divest this writing from being taken literally through treating it as allegory, I have no doubt there will be those souls who read this as a personal attack on their beliefs. If you are such a soul, my advance request to you is that you set aside a rush to judgments, patiently wait through any fallacy you may have perceived, and seek to glean some truth for yourself that inspires you.

    For those of you who see truths in this writing, may you use them to bring back to your part of the world the intended experience of Paradise and life ever-lasting.

    Above all, please, enjoy the journey it offers!

    The Author

    Tampa Bay, Florida - October 2020
