The syllabus for SCJP (310-065) and OCP 1Z0-851 are different it would seem.
As such what are the prescribed books to refer for the OCP JP exam
that are written in accordance with the new syllabus

Welcome to the ranch
Kathy Sierra's study guide will suffice for the OCJP exam. It has additional topics like serialization which are removed.

agree with john rai. kathy seirra and bert bates book will be sufficient. also check the oracle site for current syllabus. i would recommend one more book as well . thinking in java by bruce eckel is very good book . there is another one effective java . you can refer these two as well. but i think kb 6 book and the online forums will suffice.

Both exams are same. Oracle has changed the exam code only but the exam objectives are same. You need to pass 1Z0-851 exam which was earlier CX-310-065. Oracle has not changed the exam objectives, so you can take this exam if you have prepared for 310-065.

Although everybody seems to talk about K&B book, I feel it might not be the best book for OCPJP. The reason is that it is covering both the OCAJP and OCPJP topics in a single book which might be over-killing and that might not do justice with the OCPJP topics. Another thing is that this book will be available in April end, people may look at the other available alternatives. For instance, the book from Ganesh & Sharma looks like a strong alternative which is available now to order on Amazon. You can refer to this blog for more details.
