The Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship is the American Bible Society’s scholarly arm. As such it is responsible for the careful study and dissemination of theories and practices that affect how the Bible is translated, interpreted, and employed for the benefit of the church and humankind. Drawing upon the Bible Society’s nearly two-centuries’ worth of translation and publication experience, the Nida Institute is committed to assuring that the best modern scholarship from a wide range of disciplines is brought to bear on the challenging task of presenting the sacred text to the modern world in engaging ways that will change lives. To accomplish this, the Nida Institutes draws upon the expertise and experience of many partner organizations, including the United Bible Societies and the Society of Biblical Scholarship. In partnership with the San Pellegrino University Foundation, the Nida Institute sponsors the fully accredited Nida School of Translation Studies (NSTS) held each summer in Misano Adriatico, Italy.

The Nida Institute is proud to be partnering with New York Theological Seminary in the establishment and development of a Doctor of Ministry program focused on Bible Engagement, a three-year program that began in the fall of 2011. Nida Institute staff will work alongside New York Theological Seminary professors to present courses on Critical Interpretation, Culture Leadership and Identity, and Mentoring and Research. In addition, doctoral candidates will have opportunities to interface with one another and discuss their dissertation projects as part of a springtime Nida-sponsored retreat at NSTS campus in Misano.
