Out of the Depths is an Anglican theological resource, edited by Graham Kings, written for Christians of all traditions; both those who are undergoing persecution and those prayerfully trying to make sense of persecution and support their Christian brothers and sisters. 

Out of the Depths starts with our global context and six current case studies. Religious persecution, and theological responses to persecution, is then examined in Scripture. Diverse theological responses over the centuries are explored in the sections on tradition and reason, including consideration of the theological resources of those of other faiths. Each section ends with opportunities for reflection and response and the book concludes with encouragement to bring these reflections and responses to God in worship.
