The Satanic Scriptures is essential reading for anyone who is a fan of Anton Lavey, or those interested in the history of the Church of Satan!
Within this book is a series of essays gathered in Peter H. Gilmore’s more than twenty years of service in the Church of Satan. Gilmore discusses the current state of the church, and along with this he describes how Satanism in the Church of Satan had evolved throughout the years.
Along with this, the Satanic Scriptures also answers some of the common questions that he gets as a high priest of The Church of Satan, such as Satanic wedding and funeral rites, and other things that are rarely discussed outside of the inner circle of the Church of Satan. An entertaining read if you are a fan of LaVeyan Satanism. With additional authors, Timothy Patrick Butler (Illustrator), Peggy Nadramia (Epilogue), Blanche Barton (Foreword)
One reviewer stated: “As part of the greater Satanic conversation, this volume stands as a testament to what Peter Gilmore brings to the office of High Priest in the Church of Satan, and indeed Satanism in general. As Peggy Nadramia – Gilmore’s wife – describes in the afterword, Gilmore is involved in many creative pursuits, painting and music among them. For the audience who has not been introduced to him through those endeavors, the written pieces in this book allow the reader a glimpse into the mind of a man who is an efficacious communicator, on the front lines of Satanism’s defense for decades.”
