Forty years ago, the first edition of Divergent Paths of the Restoration was published. It has been updated several times with the 5th recently completed and awaiting publication. This presentation will give insights into the challenges of keeping track of a movement that continues to expand, becoming more diverse in its expressions. What are the challenges of categorizing these expressions? Are they denominations, groups, ministries? The historical roots of divergencies in the Latter Day Saint movement and examples of current expressions will be shared.
