This is a bibliography of works on the Latter Day Saint movement.



  • Hinckley, Gordon B. (1947). What of the Mormons?: A Brief Study of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. ISBN 1494053462. [1]
    • As part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Mormon pioneers' arrival in the Salt Lake Valley, LDS church president George Albert Smith tasked Hinckley (then employed as the Executive Secretary to the Church Radio, Publicity, and Mission Literature Committee) to write a book which would introduce the Church to non-members; it is divided into two sections— "The Mormons Today: A Contemporary Picture" and "The Mormons Yesterday: Their History"; beginning in 1969, the Church began publishing the historical part alone under the title Truth Restored: A Short History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  • Hardy, Grant, ed. (10 August 2005). The Book of Mormon: A Reader's Edition. University of Illinois Press. ISBN 025207341X. [22]
    • A reader-friendly version reformating the complete, unchanged 1920 text in the manner of modern translations of the Bible, with paragraphs, quotations marks, poetic forms, topical headings, multichapter headings, indention of quoted documents, italicized reworkings of biblical prophecies, and minimized verse numbers; also featuring a hypothetical map based on internal references, an essay on Book of Mormon poetry, a full glossary of names, genealogical charts, a basic bibliography of Mormon and non-Mormon scholarship, a chronology of the translation, eyewitness accounts of the gold plates, and information regarding the lost 116 pages and significant changes in the text.
  • Hardy, Grant (7 April 2010). Understanding the Book of Mormon: A Reader's Guide. Oxford University Press. ISBN 0199731705. [23]
    • An analysis of the work's narrative structure; takes readers through its characters, events, and ideas, as it explores the story and its messages; seeks to reconcile believing and nonbelieving readings by offering a literary approach.
  • Nyman, Monte S. (1 September 1991). The Most Correct Book: Why the Book of Mormon is the Keystone Scripture. Salt Lake City, Utah: Bookcraft. ISBN 088494798X.
    • Mostly written with a beginner in mind; it makes a case for Joseph Smith's description of the Book of Mormon as "the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion," and that "a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book."[1]
