Product Description

Perseguidos, marginados, encarcelados y reprimidos, los protestantes de España supieron vivir su fe en un Dios misericordioso y fiel en medio de la adversidad y de un país al que amaban pero que no les correspondía. La historia del sufrimiento y la persecución de los protestantes durante los años del franquismo muchas veces han quedado relegadas a un segundo plano, a veces por sus propios protagonistas, satisfechos de la sociedad democrática que empezó a gestarse. Sin embargo, es el deber de un pueblo guardar memoria de su historia, y por esa razón Monroy nos cuenta en Un protestante en la España de Franco su propia vida como testigo excepcional de aquella época: una historia de España diferente, real y cruda, que no sale en los libros. Monroy no dejó de luchar por defender su fe y la de sus hermanos en uno de los escenarios más hostiles que se podían encontrar.

Persecuted, marginalized, incarcerated, and repressed, the Protestants of Spain knew how to live their faith in a merciful and faithful God in the midst of adversity and a country they loved but that did not belong to them. The history of suffering and persecution of Protestants during the years of the Franco regime often has been relegated to the background, sometimes by its own protagonists, satisfied with the democratic society that began to take shape. However, it is the duty of a people to remember its history, and for that reason Monroy tells us in Un protestante en la España de Franco (A Protestant in Franco’s Spain) his own life as an exceptional witness of that time: a different, real, and raw history of Spain that does not appear in the textbooks. Monroy did not stop fighting to defend his faith and that of his brothers in one of the most hostile scenarios that could be imagined.
