Publisher's Summary

Belial is, by far, one of the most popular demons in occult lore. He is second only to Satan, and in some circles, he is Satan himself. When looking through the occult literature, one finds rituals to and descriptions of Belial, but there is little to no tangible history. We all take the occult texts as gospel and assume that what we find is all there is regarding Belial.

I say this because I have been on countless forums and group pages, and I have read several books in which they often mention Belial. From what I can glean, there seems to be a lot of confusion about his origins and even how to pronounce his name.

I created a quick video podcast on how to pronounce his name. You can watch it on my website. I am writing this because I feel with my knowledge of ancient languages and the ability to read and understand source material, as well as my 30 years in the occult, enables me to give more insight into Belial that may not be found in other writings.

Please note, this is not a book with rituals for or to Belial. This is an historical narration following Belial’s path from a mere adjective describing worthless and lawless men, to the top of the demon lists of the occult. Considering this, I would like to say that this will not be just a rehashing of his history, but a textual, linguistic, and historical analysis of Belial. 

In this audiobook, you will find chapters, like:

  • The Name of Belial and Its Origins
  • Belial in the Old Testament (Hebrew/Greek): I will do a textual and linguistic analysis of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Septuagint as it pertains to Belial. 
  • Belial in the Pseudepigrapha: It is in these texts that Belial moves into his demonic role. I will examine the texts in greater detail. 
  • Belial in the Dead Sea Scrolls: In these texts, we have Belial taking on a very prominent role in the battle of “light vs darkness”. I will examine the texts in greater depth.
  • Belial in the New Testament: In the New Testament we have reference to Belial using a different name. I will examine this further and compare the Greek descriptions of Belial in the New Testament and other Greek sources. 
  • Belial in the Occult: I will discuss Belial as he is portrayed in the occult.

The topic of Belial, as you will see, is not so straightforward. He has evolved over time. I feel, as historians and occultists, this should be understood.

Let us move on. We have a lot to cover!

Evolution of the Dark Lord Belial

Baal delivers in this audio, a comprehensive, well-researched analysis of the evolution of my beloved dark lord. Belial is one of the most powerful, enigmatic, and deliciously wicked entities in occult literature. I was delighted to be able to listen to this audio and read the book at the same time. I had purchased the book after a powerful experience with Belial. I was hooked by his presence and I wanted to learn more about him and the author did not disappoint. Historical texts can feel dry at times and hard to read through or listen to. However, Baal demonstrates a good strong command of his voice as he narrates the book in this audio. His voice is clear, rich, the tone and mood is engaging, pulling you in, arousing the imagination, very helpful for retaining the information delivered in this audio.

Wonderful book!

I really enjoyed this book! I like how it quite literally is a history of the demon Belial and how the name and context of this entity has changed over time. I thought the performance was excellent with a perfect pace! I’m definitely checking out other books by this author. Highly recommend
