Bio

Levi H. Dowling (1844-1911), who originally composed The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ under the sole name of Levi, was a Church of Christ pastor, a Civil War chaplain for the Union Army, a practitioner of homeopathic medicine, a New Thought lecturer, and a religious publisher with an extraordinary vision of unity at the heart of the world’s historic religious faiths. Dowling was born in Belleville, Ohio and eventually moved with his wife, Eva, to Los Angeles where he composed The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ. The book is seen as one of the formative works of New Age spirituality.
