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.

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.


  • The Christian Booksellers Association uses How We Got the Bible as a training tool for new bookstore owners.
  • Bible Study Fellowship has recommended 100 Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus as a key resource.
  • Focus on the Family has given away hundreds of copies of Reasons to Wait (on abstinence) to pregnancy centers.

Kind Words From People Who Use Our Charts:

  • “I would like to tell you how much we admire the effort and work you put into your products. They are wonderful…” —Katrina Ruminski, New Hampshire
  • “I’ve seen a lot of charts in my time, and Rose charts are different. They are not boring. They are clear and understandable.” —Jennifer Kennett, Moody Bookstores, Chicago
  • …I have been in the ministry for over 30 years and I have never possessed such detailed and artistically crafted resources…God has certainly blessed you and your organization with talented designers…I will certainly employ these products in my ministry here on Capitol Hill…” —Dr. Barry C. Black, Chaplain of the U.S. Senate
  • “Your material is fantastic.” —B. Bisiaux, Nevada
  • “God bless you for the great work you are doing. Your charts are THE BEST.” —John Sanden, New York
  • “We have your charts all over our living room for our home church. It is a unique way to have a personal relationship with a living God.” —John Harter, Big Valley Grace Community Church
  • “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.

    I have some questions about the genealogy of Yeshua that was published? I’m not sure if you all noticed BUT the list from Matthew and Luke are completely different lines BUT you have them both ending at Joseph. Thus in your conclusion Joseph, the husband of Mary, has two separate family lines which we all know is NOT possible. Just something to go back and study out: The account in Luke is the lineage of JOSEPH. The account in Matthew is the lineage of MARY, so Joseph (her husband) can NOT be associated here in connection to Yeshua. When you go back and search this out the translation in Matthew was incorrect in saying “husband of Mary” where in fact it should be translated “father of Mary” Mary’s father’s name was Joseph and the word is very similar to husband so the error was through translation. One wrong word can make something completely backwards. But just comparing the two genealogies you’ll be able to conclude something is obviously incorrect. If you can help me understand how Joseph can have two different daddies
    Also, in a map showing the exodus journey out of Egypt, Scripture clearly tells us that Mt. Sinai is in Arabia(Midian) “Jabal Lawz” not in the traditional site that you have continued to use. There is so much evidence and video proof today of this I just encourage you to update your materials.
    I think overall you have done a decent job with the maps and timelines but I can’t recommend you as a reliable and trusted source. I feel like you still use to much tradition and not enough actually biblical evidence in searching out these things. Yeshua said He would be three days and three nights in the belly of the earth (72 hours), sign of Jonah. Counting to 3 is very elementary stuff but yet we still remain stubborn for traditions sake. But I prefer the truth, hope you do too. The churches “palm sunday” was really a Sabbath day event a week prior to the resurrection. To better understand these events in a proper context we have to erase the programmed thoughts of religion/tradition we have grown up in. We need to know about Passover and Unleavened Bread instructions instead of the pagan rooted fertility goddess practices called easter in which we think we can honor our Saviour with. Understanding the Heavenly Fathers Holy Days/Feast will put the death, burial and resurrection of Messiah Yeshua in their proper places. There are special days within the feast of Yehovah that are counted as a Sabbath days (separate from the weekly Sabbath).
    If you would like to have more information know you are welcome to ask. I do apologize if my words sound insensitive, but out of love I share. Thank you. Maybe you are able to connect me with the right person to express these concerns.

  5. I am the Chaplain of the Bridgeport Correctional Center in Texas. We have a small library in the Chaplaincy Office and I’d like to add Rose Publishing to its inventory. We have nothing of yours at this time. I am looking for a donation of at least any returns or damaged inventory you may have. Thank you for your excellent work and consideration. CDR

  6. As concerning the Word of life, Luke 10 section 25-28 says: On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
    Luke 18 section 18-25 says: A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.'” “All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said. When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was a man of great wealth. Jesus looked at him and said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
    Matthew 5 section 43-48 says: “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
    In Old Testament, the Jewish people and their ancestors were given the Law to observe. First, What Adam and Eve should observe was that they could not eat the fruits from the tree of wisdom. Then, their son Cain was told that he should not kill. As sins became increased, the laws were also added more. Up to the generation of Moses, the Law in Old Testament was given to Israelites. We know that the Law is good and the Law is used to punish people who commit sins, but people cannot obey the Law because the sinful spirits are in people. Even that we know stealing and giving false testimony are sinful, but greedy and pride spirits in us drive us to do sinful things. So as Old Testament prophesied we need to get rid of our sinful nature from our spirits.
    Jeremiah 31 section 31-33 says: “The time is coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
    Ezekiel 36 section 24-27 says: “‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
    The prophecies are fulfilled when Jesus begins to teach love. The two greatest commandments are ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Love is above the Law and if people have love they are free from the law of sin and death. People who are full of love will not think about stealing or giving false testimony but are merciful and they feed hungry people or give thirsty people something to drink or invite strangers in or clothe people who need clothes. The Law is for people who commit sins. Nobody will say that he will get reward because he does not steal before. But love is the grace we get. And with love we will get eternal life.
    Romans 13 section 8-10 says: Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
    Luke 17 section 20-21 says: Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say,’ Here it is,’ or ‘ There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”
    John 4 section 23-24 says: Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”

    Hello, I’ve used your materials for a decade, and they are unparalleled. Now, in 2023, with so many Christian churches & publishers of materials, there is a certain shift away from Bible integrity. For example, I just read one comment in another study resource that said, “one really shouldn’t put too much stock in this statement in the Biblical text.”
    So you see that while Rose could get away with not being specific in what they believe in times past, I respectfully ask you to re-think this. I want to know where you stand on things. I’m not going to further any company with my dollars that are so “culturally relevant” that they are Biblically irrelevant.
    As I said, I have used your materials for a long time, and yes I do trust what you’ve done — to date — but how do I, an average consumer, know that you haven’t shifted in your positions, like so many others have? Being circumspect, Cathy

    I find some of your information is not factual and more research should be done.
    One: the church of Christ began the day of Pentecost.
    I have read some of your opinions, from your thoughts and not fact.
    I like most of Bible charts, maps and time lines.
