The Confessional Lutheran Education Foundation has undertaken the task of translating the Popular Series from Lutheran Press into Spanish. Writing recently (Jan. 16) from Argentina, the Director of CLEF, the Rev. John Fehrmann, noted:
Many of you are familiar with the series of books produced by Lutheran Press, funded much / mostly in part by The CLEF, translations of some Dr. Martin Luther’s stuff which have never appeared in such a fashion in all of history. That, now series of 8 with more to come, is being fully translated into Spanish for the entire Spanish speaking world. Yesterday and today we finalized our joint commitments to our primary translator (he did portions of the Spanish edition of the Lutheran Study Bible so you know he is good) to finish the current volumes – three are completed. Tomorrow morning we meet with the “final editor / reviewer” and confirm that process. Additionally this evening I will meet with the copy / page editor and finalize the details of the remaining stuff to bring it to printing. Sometime tomorrow or Saturday we will accept “bids” to print the books for here in southern South America. The exact same thing will be printed in other countries to save money – primarily in shipping. AND OF COURSE – UNLIKE OTHER (even LCMS RSO’s) all CLEF stuff will be / is available for FREE through the CLEF Theological Library E-Reader Project! And the copy rights will not be ever held hostage by anyone as you can down load – even today (in English) for FREE the CLEF Theological Library with no copy right restrictions!
