Lucifer Rising (ISBN 0-85965-280-7) is a book written by author and Church of Satan priest Gavin Baddeley. The book covers both the recent and ancient history of Satanism, and provides an examination of modern Satanist culture. The book is published by Plexus Publishing (1999).

Organized into three parts—"The History of Satanism," "Satanism in 20th-Century Culture," and The Satanic Millenium [sic]"—much of the book is composed of interviews with a wide variety of personages associated with either the Satanic religion or its concomitant aesthetic, including Anton Szandor LaVey, Kenneth Anger, and Kerry Bolton.

Other individuals discussed in Lucifer Rising include Aleister Crowley, Michael Aquino, and Charles Manson.
