Tyndale House Publishers completes acquisition of Hendrickson Publishing Group

CAROL STREAM, Ill. (April 19, 2021)– Tyndale House Publishers (@tyndalehouse) and Hendrickson Publishing Group have announced that Hendrickson Publishing Group has been acquired by Tyndale House Publishers. “Hendrickson Publishing Group is a trusted house in our industry,” stated Jeff Johnson, president and COO of Tyndale House. “Their catalog of products and expertise in the academic sphere will be a perfect complement to Tyndale’s efforts in meeting the needs of readers seeking sound biblical content for reference and study.”

The Hendrickson Publishing Group, including its Rose Publishing imprints, will continue to operate autonomously from their current locations but will work under a united mission with Tyndale in making the Scriptures accessible and relevant to readers now and for the future. “In Tyndale we have found a GREAT home for the Hendrickson Publishing Group with similar values as our own,” noted Ray Hendrickson, president and CEO of Christianbook. “We believe our products and staff will continue to flourish and grow under this new structure.” Paul Hendrickson, general manager of the Hendrickson Publishing Group, commented that “it will be a privilege for our imprints and staff to strategically collaborate as part of the Tyndale House team.”

Since its founding in 1962, Tyndale House Publishers has been a voice to trust for generations of readers. Today, Tyndale is one of the largest independent Christian publishers in the world. Tyndale’s mission is to make the Bible accessible to as many people as possible in language that they can relate and respond to. Tyndale publishes the Holy Bible, New Living Translation (NLT) and offers nonfiction books that equip readers with Christ-centered insight, counsel, and life-improving stories. In addition, Tyndale publishes fiction from fresh new voices and celebrated authors alike, capturing the imagination of millions of readers. With a deep understanding of the importance of nurturing future generations, Tyndale also publishes children’s products that make God’s Word and wisdom come alive.
