The Crossroad Publishing Company
The Crossroad Publishing Company is a leading independent publisher with roots in the 200-year-old family heritage of the publishing house of Herder, in existence since 1798. The Crossroad Publishing Company was first developed in 1980 as an influential imprint at the Episcopal Seabury Press, and is heir to the prestigious booklists of B. Herder Book Company, founded 1884 in St. Louis, Missouri, and later Herder & Herder in New York.
As did the earliest publications during the late 1700s and early 1800s, such as The Detailed Account of the Conversion of Philipp Luchs, The Young Jesus, and Prayer Book for Citizens and Farmers, our books today seek to present and guide the reader to relevant, life-giving content, wisely chosen and expertly prepared. From the beginning of the company?s journey stood the desire to make educational and inspirational materials widely accessible. Today, in an environment that offers readers unlimited available content, it is our mission to bring attention to the best of life-giving words.
