On a sidepoint, the WTS has never studied the Mankind's Search for God book (released in 1990) at a book study or through #1 talks at the TMS although it has questions. I kept waiting and asking and here in 2013, almost 23 years later....still waiting.
I went through all the publications to see what was scheduled to study at the book study from 1990 to now...that book never appears. I have had people who say they remember it, but the WT publications do no bear it out.
I asked about the reasoning book too but said there were not enough changes to warrant re-printing; that was 12 years ago. Since most jws use the "society says" approach and do not "reason" using the Bible, I'm sure the WTS sees it as a waste of money.
