He passed away on Sunday, January 27th at the age of 97. As a new chapter begins for the church, Mormon historians took time to reflect on Hinckley's legacy, both spiritual and institutional. What challenges does the religion face, and what will be the relationship of Mormons to the outside world under the leadership of the man who's likely to succeed Hinckley, President Thomas S. Monson?
