The Book of Belial is an unlockable activated item.

A gray book with an inverted pentagram on its cover.

Effects

Upon activation, blood will run from Isaac's (now empty) eye sockets, and will also have a red Cross of St. Peter on his forehead. This adds 2 points of Damage for the current room.

In addition to its +2 base damage modifier, if Isaac holds Blood Of The Martyr (without also having Max's Head or Magic Mushroom), the book gives a 1.5x damage multiplier.

Increases the chance of a Devil Room spawning by 25%.
