The Phoenix Seminary Text & Canon Institute exists to encourage research and publication of scholarly work on the history of the canon and the text of the Bible.

To accomplish this mission, the Institute:

  1. fosters and supports scholarly research, academic colloquia, conferences, and professional presentations on biblical and related ancient texts, traditions, languages, methods of textual criticism, and the history of the canon.
  2. serves the church by providing publications and public events that illuminate the integrity of the Bible’s textual history and canonization.
