Part of Signature Books’ Essays on Mormonism series, The Search for Harmony combines the insights of twenty different authors writing about the intersections between science and Mormonism. The theological implications of science range from probability of prophecy in quantum mechanics to determining parenthood for genetically engineered organisms. Mormonism teaches that God is subject to natural laws and that humans can similarly learn to create and nurture. In light of such an optimistic world view, LDS scientists attempt in this anthology to harmonize current research with church teachings.
