There is only one that I know of. Translated by Erik Pema Kunsang and published by Rangjung Yeshe.

If you find the above translation too hard to get begin with, I would also suggest reading Ways of Enlightenment. It's basically an easier to digest introduction to the topics in the khenjuk, although you might find it a tad annoying if you prefer books written in an academic style.

IMO, EPK's (which Thomas mentioned) is pretty good. It's the only one I know of as well. I think it's well worth looking into/buying.

Patrul Rinpoche in Belgium did an abridgement with facing Tibetan and English text IIRC but yeah the only full translation is by EPK.
