A New Bible in the Words of Jehovih and His Angel Ambassadors. A Sacred History of the Dominions of the Higher and Lower Heavens on the Earth for the Past Twenty-Four Thousand Years together with a Synopsis of the Cosmology of the Universe; the Creation of Planets; the Creation of Man; the Unseen Worlds; the Labor and Glory of Gods and Goddesses in the Etherean Heavens; with the New Commandments of Jehovih to Man of the Present Day.
According to the glossary in the 1882 edition, the meaning of the word used in the title is:
Oahspe. Sky, earth (corpor) and spirit. The all; the sum of corporeal and spiritual knowledge as at present.
Newbrough, who wrote Oahspe on one of the first typewriters (which was a recent invention at that time), claimed that Oahspe was the result of angelic control, and was written through automatic writing on the typewriter. Oahspe also includes many drawings made by Newbrough, which are also said to be through angelic control. The practice of “automatic writing” was well known during the period in which Oahspe was written (1881), and Newbrough said that the book was the result of that spiritualist technique. He described the presence of angels and lines of light which controlled his hands as they “automatically” typed the text.
