B for Books: My Book List

This is my recommended book list for anybody thinking of following a Kemetic Path or interested in Ancient Egypt and the Near East. There may be some overlap with some of my amazing fellow Kemetics out there but it is worth repeating in any fashion because, well, reading is important.

In no particular order:

1. Red Land Black Land- Daily life in Ancient Egypt

2. The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt– Lives of Pharaohs and commoners and how they worshipped the Gods.

3. The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt– Historical Outline of Ancient Egypt.

4. Conceptions of God in Ancient Egypt– Historical Overview of Religious concepts.

5. Egyptian Mythology: Guide to the Gods, Goddesses, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt.

6. Going Forth by Day– The Complete Papyrus of Ani.

7. The Wisdom of Ptah-Hotep– Wisdom Literature

8. Ancient Near Eastern History and Culture– Expensive but TOTALY worth it.

These are all books any Kemetic, beginner or not, should have in their library. Being knowledgable in ones history is a part of the religion itself. In Kemeticism gaining knowledge and bettering ourselves is a way we honor Netjer.

So go out there, read, practice, master your craft. In doing so you are honoring the Gods.
