Our History

History of Hendrickson Publishers:

In 1980, Hendrickson Publishers was started with the publication of The Works of Josephus. Since then, we’ve produced thousands of high-quality books and Bibles to help people study religious texts in varying capacities and have grown to expand into a publishing group that includes eight distinct imprints, including Rose Publishing. And yes, after all that, we still publish Josephus.

History of Rose Publishing:

Rose Publishing was started by a Sunday school teacher and a public school teacher in 1991. The mother-daughter team realized there were very few good Bible charts, time lines, and maps on the market for their classes and began creating their own. Other teachers started asking for the charts and the company was born. From those few charts locally, to thousands of loyal customers worldwide today, Rose Publishing is the only Christian publisher that specializes in graphics-rich products. Rose has become known for providing quality products developed by expert authors, including professors and consultants from evangelical Christian colleges and seminaries.
