Pages: 190   

Out of the Depths is a true story of one Marines experience on the USS Indianapolis.  Edgar Harrell was a Marine stationed on the USS Indianapolis when tragedy struck the vessel.  The enfolding and horrific experience is told with such raw honesty and peace.  As I read Mr. Harrell’s account of the events that unfolded, I could tell that this is a man of great faith and a true believer.  He held on firmly to his faith during a time of death, chaos, anguish, and uncertainty.

Mr. Harrell wrote so honestly that I found myself becoming emotional at some of the experiences he and his comrades went through.  For me this was an unforgettable read.  Mr. Harrell is a man of true faith and is a great example of this.  His story is a testament to the Lord’s faithfulness and love.
I recommend this book to everyone.  Maybe history fans might like this more but I do think that everyone should read Mr. Harrell’s courageous and faithful story; I believe that all who do will be greatly affected by it.  He is a great example of living a faith-filled life.
