“Traditional Observance” Podcast
by Masonic Central
Observing the Craft is a manifesto of sorts for the observant Mason, who seeks quality over quantity in every aspect of Masonry.
It is a stringent argument for the Symbolic (Blue) Lodge as the ne plus ultra of the Craft, asking that Masons put actions behind their statements that ‘nothing is higher than the third degree.’
It is a book that calls for nothing but the utmost personal effort and commitment to be put into the operation of a Masonic Lodge, and the experience of a Masonic meeting, in search of the transformational experience which Masons define as ‘making good men better’.

I believe he accomplished just that. Although John Robinson does tend to ramble at times and often makes the same points repeatedly, the book is a quality product and deserves to be seen as such. His theories on the origins of Freemasonry and the history of the fraternity are not only well researched and documented, but very likely true.
This book is an excellent resource and I highly recommend it to anyone that would like to learn about the history of the Freemasons. I believe it speaks volumes that John J. Robinson’s last request was to be made a Mason and given a proper Masonic Funeral service
