Abstract: This document begins by reviewing the various crises threatening Mormon identity and survival: at its beginnings in the 1830s when the Church was first established, following the death of Joseph Smith in 1844, with the coming of the transcontinental railroad in the late 1860s, and during the anti-Mormon movement of the 1890s into the early 1900s. The second part addresses the Church in the post-World War Two era, including the 1960s, when Mormonism become more urban, youth oriented, and internationally focused.
