Can anyone remember the books that were in the old sets of the "Missionary reference sets"? Has there only been the 2 difference sets?

Current set includes "Our Search for Happiness" by Elder M. Russell Ballard, "Jesus the Christ" by Elder James E. Talmage, "True to the Faith", and "Our Heritage".


Seems like there was "A Marvelous Work and Wonder", Articles of Faith", "Jesus the Christ", and what else??? in the old set?

1- Would it be ok to say these books have been commissioned or sanctioned (lack of better word?) as books ok’d by the church?

2- And are there anymore?

A Marvelous Work and Wonder was taken out. Not sure why. So it use to be in there. Our Heritage is really just an updated version of Truth Restored. Sanctioned by the church? I would probably use Packers Holy Temple to replace Talmage's, even though I assume they probably cover similar things.

I served 2002-2004 and we had:

A Marvelous Work and a Wonder
Jesus the Christ
Truth Restored
Gospel Principles
Articles of Faith
Our Search For Happiness


My mission president also encouraged us to acquire and study The Great Apostasy, by Talmage.

Lectures on Faith wasn't included in my set (the one I got in 2004 before they changed it). If it was, it was well before my time.

They're two different works. The Holy Temple focuses on preparing for the Temple and Temple worship. The House of the Lord primarily gives us a walkthrough of the Salt Lake Temple.
