Levi H. Dowling (May 18, 1844 - August 13, 1911) was an American preacher known for proletyzing at a young age, including debates at 13 against Presbyterian elders. Dowling was a pastor by 18 and served as a chaplain for the Union during the Civil War. Dowling is even said to have preached President Lincoln's funeral service to Union troops in Illinois.
Dowling was also a prolific author, writing 2 spiritual healing books, including Self-Culture and Biopneuma: The Science of the Great Breath. The Publisher's Introduction to Biopneuma says that Levi taught chemistry, toxicology, physiology, histology, and lectured on the use of electricity in medicine.
Dowling’s most famous work is The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ, published in 1908. It claimed to be the true story of the life of Jesus, including “the ‘lost’ eighteen years not discussed in the New Testament.” Dowling claimed to have transcribed it from the Akashic Records. The Aquarian Age denotes the human race as standing on the cusp of the Piscean-Aquarian Ages. Aquarius is an air sign and the New Age is already noted for remarkable inventions for the use of air, electricity, magnetism, etc. The Aquarian Christine Church Universal, Inc. (ACCU) is a denomination founded on the teachings found in The Aquarian Gospel and other writings by Levi H. Dowling.
