Discovering ... : The Guideposts Home Bible Study Program

(last updated .08-19-2014)

Please note: this was a one-time documentation project only. I no longer have any copies of any of these books and I have no further interest in this project, nor in making any further updates to this page. Thank you.


 

 

 

 

      This page lists the set of 22 Guideposts Home Bible Study Program books purchased at the 9-28-2010 Book Sale at the Oshkosh Public Library. It is NOT a compete set of all known titles. There is no mention of these books on the Guideposts Web site. (Wikipedia)

      To anybody reading this not connected with First Congregational Church of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, these books are NOT for sale or trade. It is not a want list. It is simply an attempt to list every book in the series, a list I could find nowhere else on the Web.

      The following Books in the King James Version are not listed here. Do series books exist for them? - Old Testament: (Minor Prophets) Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi; - New Testament - Series Completed
      If no series books ever existed for these Bible Chapters, it is unknown why the Series was halted before completion.
      Series Title = a title in bold with no number is one found via Web searching. I do not have complete details about these books. Please write if you have one of the books in bold, and send details about it similar to what is included below for each book. - details needed

The Guideposts Home Bible Study Program,
General Editor: Floyd W. Thatcher, Associate Editor: Robin White Goode, Technical Consultant: Bob E. Patterson,
Guideposts Associates, Inc., Carmel, NY 10512, Series published 1985-1990

      All are hardcover books with no ISBN or LC numbers. Only 8 of the 22 books have an Index. Unlike other books, the Authors are not listed on the Title page. They are on the Frontispiece. Also, every Table of Contents is incomplete. If a book has an Index, it is not mentioned in the TOC, and the complete Chapter titles are not listed. For example, two Chapters: "Lesson 1, Genesis 25:1-27:45, Abraham's Family Tree" and "Lesson 2, Genesis 27:46-31:55, Jacob's Years in Haran", are simply "Lesson 1" and "Lesson 2" in the TOC. They are all in like new condition with no Library markings.

          09-05-2013 Note: When I moved from Oshkosh to Ripon on 6-01-2012, I had to downsize considerably, so I donated many, many books to local libraries which presumably have since sold them at one of their regular book sales.
