This course was discontinued in the 1980s after the thriving Mission Network was destroyed by David Miscavige. The mission network had grown tremendously and was a direct outgrowth of LRH's establishment of the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course. Class VI auditors streamed out from Saint Hill and established missions all over the world. One of the more popular courses was the Volunteer Minister's Course which, like the older HQS course, got a new Scientologist able to apply 19 separate areas of technology, really making the person into a "Scientologist." The old Volunteer Minister's Handbook didn't have pictures like the current Scientology Handbook — it didn't need them. It was easy to understand and got the student applying Scientology in real world conditions, which the Scientology Handbook failed to do.

In the early 90s I sup'd lots of people on the Scn Handbook version of the VM course. I thought it was wonderful, and a definite improvement over the old VMH. The checksheets were better, more relevant, with better drills, and the text was far clearer and easier to understand. One big problem with studying Hubbard originals is that a newbie without guidance will have no idea what is current tech and what is "old and not used anymore." Rewrites like the Scn Handbook and Clearbird sidestep this problem completely. Old-timers can miss this, because after 30 years they know without thinking what is currently applicable and what is not, but a newbie doesn't know this at all.
