The Story of Rose Publishing

Rose Publishing was started by a Sunday school teacher and a public school teacher in 1991. They realized that 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.

Rose Publishing, Inc. publishes full-color easy-to-use Bible reference materials, including Bible charts, Bible maps, Bible timelines and biblical reference pamphlets for pastors, Bible study leaders, New Member Classes, and small groups. Rose Publishing specializes in graphics-rich Bible teaching aids. Its mission is to make Bible and Christian topics easy to understand and more interesting.

Then and Now Bible Maps: Rose Publishing produces the the #1 Bible Atlas according to the 2007 Christian Booksellers Assocation Core Inventory Report. It is the only full-color “Then and Now” Bible Maps that show a Bible map with clear plastic overlays of modern-day cities and countries. These Bible maps show where Bible places are today. They are available in many formats and sizes: large wall maps, spiral-bound map books, small maps to fits in the back of a Bible, and even as PowerPoint Bible maps.

Rose Publishing produces the #1 Bible Reference work according to the 2007 Christian Booksellers Assocation Core Inventory Report. The Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps, and Time Lines has more than 180 full- color pages of Bible charts and teaching aids. Fully reproducible!

Comparison Charts of Christian Churches and Christian Denominations: Now you can compare the beliefs of 12 Christian denominations (including Baptists, Lutherans, Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians, Orthodox, Anglican, Adventist, Pentecostal, Anabaptist, Churches of Christ and more).

Our Mission

To publish and distribute easy-to-use Bible reference material, especially Bible study charts, maps, and time lines.

How do we decide what new products to make?

All of the editors and designers at Rose Publishing are pastors, teachers, or Bible study leaders who test and use the materials themselves. Every year people call and write to us with requests for new charts. We pick the topics that are the most important and look for experts who can write solid Bible material in a clear, easy-to-teach way. We specialize in making difficult concepts clear and easy-to-understand for all ages and backgrounds.

  • “Rose Publishing has an excellent fold-out pamphlet on the Trinity that is lay-friendly and deals with cultic objections to the doctrine. HIGHLY recommended.” —Paul Carden, Executive Director, The Centers for Apologetics Research
  • “[The Trinity] is a great publication.” —John Morehead, Watchman Fellowship
  • I have heard nothing but praise for your materials. They are very effective and extremely well made, more so than any other charts and graphs I have encountered.” —S. Jackson, Colorado
  • As a Sunday school teacher, I found that I preferred the Rose Publishing map of Paul’s journeys over those of other publishers. Since the map is laminated, I can write on it as our class progresses, and then erase it for the next session…—Paul Trask
  • When we were thinking about opening our store I saw Rose Publishing in other stores so I went to the Rose website to take a look. Immediately I realized that these are products we must carry in our store. Our display came last week and there is no question we made the right decision. It is perfect. As a former missionary in the Congo, I want products that are evangelistic and missions minded. Rose products are more than the “cute” products I could carry… they are an indispensable and integral tool in helping Christians grow.
