My first book was, "What has religion done for mankind." in 1956.

The first Bible was, "The Scofield Reference Bible 1945.

Although Scofield said 'Jehovah' was the covenant name, he gave credit to it by including it in many places, EG: Page 6, 11 times. Page 7, 18 times. Although out of print, I still use it for references to the King James version. (Authorised Version)

I should have added that the WT society in the early days disliked the word, "Religion", which was the reason for publishing the book 'What has religion done for mankind."

I kept that (Yellow) book until 2012 when I moved to an old age home then gave my collection to a very devoted brother. Prior to that I also owned the Harp of God which was given to the congregation library. It belonged to my wife's grandmother.

My wife and I studied in the Paradise book and the United in Worship book. We also studied for a time the Truth book, but allowed family pressure to dissuade us from studying for a time. We have added some of the older books to our collection over the years just for the novelty of it. Sadly though, some apostates love to take what was spiritual truth at the time when the older publications were published and trash talk the society for some of their beliefs. It is time for friends to have these in their personal library, but there is a reason they are no longer in print and many are no longer cited in current articles at all.

WOW,  thats  so  nice,  study  together  as  couple :x   I  couldn't  do  that,  bec. my  husband  didn't  want  it :(  So  I  did  it  step by step  alone,  first  with  my  girlfriend.  But  he  was  very  cooperative, friendly  &  loving :)  Nice  books  you  got  for  study  the  truth  with  the  Bible...  Yes,  some  older  books  are  very  valuable  too !  But  the  most  JW  maybe  have  NO  place  at  home  for  many  books  -  today,  all  is  saved  in  their  tablets.  I  don't  know,  which  books  we  all  will  have  in  the  NW  and  paradise...   what  do  you  think  Brother  David ?@David Normand   -   With  the  apostates,  its  a  special  problem  -  they  like  it,  bring  us  in  conflict  with  Jehovah  and  always  working  against  to  bring  us  in  confusion !  We're  firm  in  the  truth  with  many  or  less  books...  Many  JW  on  little  islands  or  poor  countries,  have  of  sure  only  less  books  at  home.  The  heart  is  deciding  for  Jehovah  and  thats  perfect  I  think      Greetings  rom  Germany !

Yes...  our  WT  society  was  making  some  mistakes  in  the  past  Brother  Colin,  we  all  knowing !  The  Bible  is  too  complex  to  understanding,  not  so  easy.   But  the  Brothers  always  made  it  public,  thats  good !

WOW,  very  old  books  you  got  in  your  life :)   Now  probable  a  'place - problem'  in  your  last  home ?

Do  you've  still  some  theocratic  books ?  But  you've  a  comp.  at  home,  so  you  have  alot  to  read  and  to  talk,  its  not  boring  around  you :D   Talking  with  others  is  very  importend !   In  some  old  age  homes  in  Germany,  living  Brothers  and  Sisters  and  they  have  regular  meetings  in  a  separate  room,  thats  very  nice !   In  your  home  similar ?     May  Jehovah  bless  you,  our  Brother  Colin ❤     @Colin Browne    Greetings  from  Germany !

I did not see the Paradise Lost to Paradise Restored book there.  My parents studied that with me as well as Let God be True and Things in which it is Impossible for God to Lie.  I came across a fairly new looking copy of the Let God be True a few years ago, an in-law left it in the house. I am treasuring it.  I have books mostly from the late sixties and 70s, and bound volumes from the 60s, as there was a special reprinting in the 90s of the sixties bound volumes.  I have stopped keeping bound volumes from last year and hope the Watchtower CD would be adequate.

Gracias  hermana  Wilma...     @Wilma

Esto  es  interesante,  ya  viejos  libros  que  consultaron  Su  padre,  que  nunca  tuvo  estos  antiguos  tesoros!

Tal  vez  va  a  encontrar  en  nuestra  Asamblea - biblioteca?   Pero  sin  duda  en  Bethel.
Gracias  por  su  comentario :)       Saludos  desde  Alemania !
