About the Author
LEVI (Levi H. Dowling) was born May 18, 1844 in Belleville, Ohio. His father, of Scotch-Welsh descent, was a pioneer preacher among the Disciples of Christ. Levi, following in his father s footsteps, began preaching at the age of sixteen; and at the age of eighteen was pastor of a small church. He entered the US Army as a Chaplain and served in this capacity to the end of the Civil War. By 1866 he was a student at Northwestern Christian University in Indianapolis, Indiana where he soon began publishing Sunday School literature. After graduation, he studied at two medical colleges and went on to practice medicine for a number of years. After his retirement from medicine in the early 1900 s, Levi resumed his literary work and began to organize THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST for publication. Levi passed from earth-life on August 13, 1911.
