Once a high level Mason, Neil McKinlay offers firsthand insight into Freemasonry and its teachings, which inspired him to a deep Biblical study of "the Stone the builders rejected"--Jesus Christ. You will be uplifted as you follow his absorbing journey "through the lattice" to the discovery of his calling to ministry.
An adventurous, captivating and poetic memoir of the author's courageous and spiritual journey from Scotland to Canada to Australia in his quest to "find the Truth and know the living God." Neither an apologetic nor a polemic, he corrects much misinterpretation and misunderstanding of Freemasonry. We learn how inspiration from Masonic teachings about Solomon's Temple, the arch, and keystone led him to a deep study of the revelation from the Bible of the "stone the builders rejected" which is Christ. Readers will be uplifted, inspired, and delighted as they follow along with him in the discovery of his calling to become a minister.
"From Mason to Minister-Through the Lattice is a captivating journey of courage through a world of secrets, soul-searching, and ultimate success. An intriguing and inspiring read from shadows to sunlight!" -William J. Federer, author and radio host of American Minute
"Neil is an accomplished writer and poet and his gifts show up loud and clear in this autobiographical book of his journey through Freemasonry toward the solid rock of Calvinism. Having come there myself along a very different road, it truly amazes me to learn how God leads His elect in various ways back to the great Jehovah Elohim without Whom no one can come to God. I heartily recommend this readable book." -Rev. Professor Emeritus Dr. Francis Nigel Lee
"By its very nature, Freemasonry is shrouded in mystery and cloaked in secrecy, which has led inevitably to much misunderstanding and misinformation. It is here Brother McKinlay's book comes to the rescue. Neither an apologetic nor a polemic, it is the memoir of his conversion to Christ after his personal membership in Freemasonry, how he moved from Mason to Minister. His journey, seen Through the Lattice (Song of Solomon 2), is charming, engaging, informative, historical, and most of all, Biblical. It is unique--as is typical of Nordskog Publishing--and answer some questions about a controversial subject. It is a book to be enjoyed." -Dr. J.D. Watson, Pastor and author of A Word for the Day and A Hebrew Word for the Day
"I read a lot of books. Many different kinds. Some just for entertainment. The ones I look for most keenly, however, those that I seek like pearls without price, are books like this. Books that get me in touch with God. As a Christian (though not a Calvinist) I consider this to be a treasure. Especially so given that I know the person who experiences are related. There is a sense (it seems to me) that only literature of this kind is actually important." -Billy Scobie, author of Whiskey in the Jar, and The Cup, Dunbartonshire, Scotland
