Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language was produced during the years when the American home, church and school were established upon a Biblical and patriotic basis. Webster made important contributions to an American educational system which kept the nation on a Christian Constitutional course for many years. This classic 2,000 page volume is the gold standard of language for the American Christian and a primary source tool for daily study.

It is not surprising, therefore, that the 1828 American Dictionary contains the greatest number of Biblical definitions given in any reference volume. Webster considered "education useless without the Bible" and while he cautioned against too extensive use of the Bible in schools as "tending to irreverence," he reiterated, "In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people..."
A dictionary shapes thinking and reasoning as words are given precise meaning. Most modern American Dictionaries reflect the current cultural erosion of vocabulary that forms a secular worldview. However, the Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language--an essential tool for renewing your mind and educating Christian families-- helps to form a Biblical worldview.
