The Book Of The Law is controversial and often misunderstood,
By A Customer
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
As you can tell from the other reviews of this book, it provokes a wide range of reactions from its readers. To some it's an idol; to others, a comic book. The book itself says, "The fool readeth this Book of the Law, and its comment; & he understandeth it not. Let him come through the first ordeal, & it will be to him as silver. Through the second, gold. Through the third, stones of precious water. Through the fourth, ultimate sparks of the intimate fire. Yet to all it shall seem beautiful. Its enemies who say not so, are mere liars." I would suggest that no one buy this book unless they are prepared to find it either disappointing or transformative.

A Transformative ,disappointment in reality it is the twin wand of the magus a work that should be avoided at all costs.
I tend to concur with these wisewords from the comment " a centre of pestilence " ::"
The Book of the law is of course made available and has not been out of print for many years, So I assume many out there have trodden the path to the centre of the Goat lust hoping to find truth...well it containers truth, it containers spirits and all sorts of foul and fare things it is a work gladly to be ignored and thankfully you do not have to accept Crowley s bent's and perversions. It is a journey better enjoyed after reading a little Egyptology , however the name have a resonance of their own and you will have hadit and known it. The 2nd chapter is intently lovely BTW. I do not recommend this book.
