Hello, LDS scholars. Look at your bookshelf, now back at mine. Now back at your bookshelf, now back to mine! Sadly your bookshelf doesn’t have all the LDS science books that mine has, but if you stopped buying vampire love stories, it could look like mine.

This post is about “must have” books for Latter-day Saints who are interested in the relationship between Mormon theology and science. I’ve compiled a list of books that LDS scholars should consider acquiring and reading, especially those who fashion themselves as experts on Restoration theology and science. Some of these are out of print and may be hard to find.

Please respond if you know of a book that should be added to the list.
