The rise of the study of the religion and spirituality in the field of health sciences has been remarkable. Certainly, a significant increase in research has been documented within the field of the psychology of religion and spirituality in the Puerto Rican context. In this article, I briefly discuss some Puerto Rican books that expose content associated with this topic from different perspectives. In addition, I reflect in our commitment to promote the scientific study of religious and spiritual dimensions in the field of mental health. We extend a call to the community of professionals and students to join this path.
