Freemasons await Dan Brown novel `The Lost Symbol'

Brown goes out of his way in "The Lost Symbol" to present the lodge as essentially benign and misunderstood. Masons are praised for their religious tolerance and their elaborate rituals are seen as no more unusual than those of formal religions. The plot centers in part on an "unfair" anti-Masonic video that "conspiracy theorists would feed on ... like sharks," Langdon says.
.
"I have enormous respect for the Masons," Brown told The Associated Press during a recent interview. "In the most fundamental terms, with different cultures killing each other over whose version of God is correct, here is a worldwide organization that essentially says, `We don't care what you call God, or what you think about God, only that you believe in a god and let's all stand together as brothers and look in the same direction.'

I was talking to a long time theosophist who is reading Dan Browns novel and his first impression was very positive and it is well researched and many of the theosophical ideas are there, obviously Dan has read some of the key theosophical works. let us wait and see more feedback from other readers.

I've just finished reading "The Masonic Myth" by my old boss and colleague Jay Kinney (founder of Gnosis). It's just come out from Harper, and is very good, I think. Jay is a Mason, so he has quite a bit of access to internal sources, but he is also fair, clear, and objective.

Looks like readers are gobbling it as fast as they can. I even saw it sold at Sams Club (a place lot of people in the usa shop). Usually, books show up at Sam's Club after a delay after release. This time is different. It is on the shelfs same time it was sold by big retailers. Will have to wait and see the feedback we get from the public. I hope public will get some good education on positive aspects of freemasonry.
