This essay explores the influence of Kenneth Cragg on the Anglican Church in Iran through a survey of his relationship with its various bishops. It shows how his influence can be seen especially at a time when the church was trying to find its identity as an authentic indigenous Christian presence in Iran during the 1960s and 70s. Furthermore, it underlines how traces of Cragg's theology and approach to interfaith relations have undergirded the response of the church to the persecution it has experienced in the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution as it has sought to retain a faithful presence in times of trouble.
