    Kemetic Monotheist
    I've found some books useful for this; not many at the minute but here are some I like,

    Conceptions of God in Ancient Egypt: The One and the Many.

    This book seeks to demonstrate the polytheistic nature of Kemetic religion and takes umbrage with the Victorian/early 20thc. idea that Kemetic faith has a monotheistic root or such. It's very good and very indepth. Goes more into detail about Kemetic theological concepts than the title implies, going beyond its original premise. Very in-depth look at various Kemetic words and their meanings. Translated from German so somewhat of a wooden read but very academic. Interesting for a monotheist like me.

    The Search for God in Ancient Egypt.

    This is another book translated from German and a dry read, but very well written and also very academic. The author inserts his own thoughts but they are worth reading. It is a look at Kemetic theology and various concepts associated therewith. I'm really enjoying this one.

    The Oxford Essential Guide to Egyptian Mythology.

    A wonderful wordbook of Kemetic terms and ideas, albeit maybe somewhat outdated.
