"Oahspe a new Bible in the Words of Jehovih and his Angel Embassadors - a sacred history of the dominions of the higher and lower heavens on the earth for the past twenty-four thousand years, being from the submersion of the continent of Pan in the Pacific Ocean, commonly called the flood or deluge to the Kosmon era. Also, a brief history of the preceding fifty five thousand years together with synopsis of the cosmology of the universe, the creation of the planets, the creation of man, the unseen worlds, the labor and glory of gods and goddesses in the ethereal heavens; with the new commandments of Jehovih to man of the present day with revelations from the second resurrection formed in words in the thirty-third year of the Kosmon era." - The full title of the Oahspe. I know I missed some capitalization and punctuation, but the words of my transcription should all be correct.

I encourage the reading of Wikipedia on this book. - Jon Wobber
