    The 1500’s Spanish reformer, Juan Perez, wrote a lengthy tract seeking to confirm and comfort protestants in the heart-breaking circumstances of living under the fear and suffering of the Spanish Inquisition.

    This work has been newly translated into English by Charles F. Johnson for the first time and will be especially encouraging to anyone going through difficult times. May this old book bring us hope for this life and the next.

    “For there is no Jesus Christ without a cross,
    nor a true and blessed cross without Jesus Christ.”


    Perez, Juan – The Epistle of Consolation to Those Imprisoned by the Inquisition 1560 130 pp. Translated from Spanish by Charles Johnson, with a biographical preface about Perez.

    Perez (c.1500-1567) was a Spanish reformer who spent time in Geneva and also translated the New Testament and Psalms into Spanish.

    Brilliant. Have you any other translation projects currently in progress?

    I don't. But it would be great if any of the persons here who know Spanish took a stab at translating the various reformed writings yet to be translated into English:

    And Daniel, I believe you asked previously about translations of reformed orthodox material in journals. Here is a piece from Rutherford by Rev. McCurley:
