The Grand Design by Wallace McLeod / Hardcover
A wealth of knowledge is imparted in this collection of addresses and articles by a master storyteller. They range from the days of scrolls to this computer age. "This is a book that had to be published," wrote Allen E. Roberts in his Foreword. "It brings to life a philosophy that can be found nowhere else." It also brings under one cover invaluable information that should be preserved for the ages. It includes three "how to" chapters: for writers and for researchers. It then tells the reader how to expand on the discoveries of the author. McLeod is well aware that research is a never ending mission. Within these pages one finds an excellent record of the Old Charges, the documents on which the teachings of Freemasonry are based. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to find a more complete account of these tomes from the distant past. Hard Cover $19.95
