Review

"A restored classic! This one has truly withstood the test of time. The original copyright date is 1908. (I discovered it in the late 1980’s.) This new edition is based on the earliest existing version (1911). I still refer to it often when I teach. I’m delighted to have this new, restored edition on my shelf."

About the Author

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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

What I know to be true is this much, the modern versions of the new testament like King James is full of information added by the many transcribers from years past. Then there is a lot of Jesus' life left out to also suit the whole puritain way of thought. Those versions are quite hard to read as well. They suit the whole ritualistic way of spiritual life. Jesus himself said to beware of men in fancy garb who think that by performing rituals that they are holy. I've read the reviews that are disgusted with this book. Those people are holding onto what has been engrained in them. They claim that there is no proof that this is the real words of christ. Have an open mind and I promise you will not be dissappointed. Once you have read it, your own heart will tell you whose version is truth. You don't need any proof. Christ himself said that those who believe without seeing proof are thrice blessed. Don't let someone else make up your mind for you about what's right and what's wrong. I pray you to at least give this book a chance. If you don't, you could be missing out on what just might be the most profound and greatest book you have ever read. Give yourself a chance to decide what version you believe is real.

Format: Paperback
The "Church" (whether any of the Catholic sects or Protestant denominations) has always taught their adherents "traditional truths" about the man that they worship as God, Jesus Christ. Throughout the history of "Christianity," these churches have emphasized rituals and outward demonstrations of devotion to this "god," no less so than the ancient Israelites making the Golden Calf. What has been taught for almost two thousand years is a complete distortion of who Jesus really was. He is the most misunderstood (and most taken-advantage-of) man in the history of the world. This book is certainly not for anyone who is happy or satisfied with the church that they belong to. This book is for people who have doubts about what they are being told, and for people who NEED to understand WHY things are the way they are in this world. Its not good enough for a religious "authority" to proclaim, "You should not have sex before marraige," but not tell you exactly why you shouldn't. The Aquarian Gospel will answer many questions, but those answers will not be accepted by a great many people who will read it. If you are skeptic about Edgar Cayce's "readings" then you should not even bother with this book. Ultimately, Levi and Cayce have tapped the same source; a source which most people cannot grasp, because they are hard of heart.

Yesterday I ordered this book to be sent to a pen pal friend in prison. I did so for a few reasons. One is that prisons allow many fundamental Christians virtually free reign in their attempts to "save" the sinners all prisoners are. These well meaning folks in many cases essentially add to the guilt and alientation virtually all prisoners share. Another reason I'm sending it to my friend is that he is well respected for his insights regarding spirituality so when he recommends this book those that know him will be prone to consider what it invites.
Reading a few reviews I can see where what is contained in the book is quite threatening. One person looked at it primarily in the historical perspective using the Bible as the benchmark to disagree with its accuracy.
For me having first read this work over 20 years ago the invitations within it are not just about Jesus by any means. It is a metaphysical treatise. If one has an open heart and mind there will be found within its pages invitations to move past some of our self created limitations.
People quibble if its Divinely inspired. Those that do do not accept and understand that everything is at its core Divine. In time they will.
If you are seeking a further understanding of your place and relationship with what Is this book could help.
Namaste,
Michael

Format: Paperback
It's a deeper, clearer image of Jesus as a teacher of the human race and God's divine messenger. Having grown up as a disenchanted Catholic girl, I welcome this new/old synopsis of Jesus' life, from his education and training abroad, to his practice of Reiki healing among the people. The parables are enhanced by expanded background descriptions of those who were listening and why. Levi relates a real world of travelers, politicians, and common folk of that era. No wonder Jesus could inspire and terrify so many. This is the Christ I feel close to-- a bright burning fire of love and mercy, practical, courageous, waiting to guide us home.
Recommended for intelligent, open-minded readers interested in matters of Spirit and the human heart.

Format: Paperback
"The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus The Christ" was originally recommended to me 10 years ago. I have read and reread it several times. I must say that on my first reading (especially the introduction) I found it hard to believe. However, the content of the book "felt right" and that is the only way I can describe it. As the years have past and I have encountered other books on spiritual matters I find that "The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus The Christ" makes so much more sense to me and has become one of the staple books in my spiritual Library. Many may have a hard time believing what this book has to say because it gives no evidence that it is truth, but to quote Pontius Pilate "What is truth?", I believe we must each listen to that quiet voice from our hearts for the answer.
