Good Beginner Books for Kemetics

The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook PaperbackI highly recommend Rev. Dr. Tamara L. Siuda’s book, The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook.  This book has many prayers, invocations and hymns for specific Kemetic deities (including Set!), prayers for holidays, children and certain situations.  This  book also has a daily ritual called the Senut which is the main daily rite for Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer.  Siuda also has another book about Kemetic Holidays which is also excellent, The Ancient Egyptian Daybook.  (Her books are also available through Amazon).

 

Eternal Egypt: Ancient Rituals for the Modern WorldRichard Reidy’s book is very dense and extremely traditional.  Many Kemetics use his daily ritual from this book in their daily practice.  A link to his book is here: Eternal Egypt.  His companion book to this one is here: Everlasting Egypt.

 

 

 

Eye of the Sun - The Sacred Legacy of Ancient Egypt

Kerry Wisner is the Head Priest of the Akhet Hethert (Hathor) temple.  He has three books out about the Kemetic faith:  Eye of the Sun (for beginners); Song of Hathor (intermediates); and Pillar of Ra (about festivals).  These are great books to add to your library especially if you love Hathor.

Are there any other books you’d recommend?
