About Us

The Crossroad Publishing Company (www.crossroadpublishing.com)
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.

Our books are consistent with basic Judeo-Christian values, advocate the dignity of life, and aim to share the rich experience of the Catholic people, their brothers, sisters, and friends around the globe and in history. Our catalog includes the most stellar writings on spiritual tradition, discipline and formation; writings in support of family life, community building and personal and professional development; and writings of academic brilliance in search of theological and mystical truth.

During a time when material concerns seem to carry undisputed authority over all areas of our lives, Crossroad and Herder & Herder books act as signposts toward the bold promise, permanence, and, indeed, happiness of a life directed by faith, hope, and love.
