Description
 
Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary, facsimile of the original edition, is a national treasure and a primary source tool for daily study. The Dictionary defines words according to their meaning during the founding generation (making it a prerequisite to understanding America's founding documents) from a Biblical context. Many definitions contain Scripture references and excerpts of Bible verses.

The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary is a unique and essential tool for educating Christians. It has the greatest number of Biblical definitions of any reference. Roots are traced in 26 languages. Usage examples come from classical literature and the Bible. This dictionary becomes not only a tool for defining words Biblically, it becomes a way of thinking that forms your worldview. It will equip you for Christian leadership, strengthen your vocabulary, give you an edge in communicating your view and become your foundation for thinking and reasoning Biblically. This tool can be the turning point for you to be more effective in communicating Christian principles used in government, economics, and marketing or for your student to clearly understand how the Bible has influenced every area of life.

A fund of wisdom, knowledge, and information September 18, 2009
Reviewer: tepi from United States  
This book is a facsimile of the 1828 two-volume dictionary in one volume. Noah Webster was a very learned and very devout man, and his ideas about language in his very long Introduction to this book make for interesting reading. The frontispiece gives us a marvelous portrait of Webster.
As for the actual entries, Christian readers will find it rewarding to compare his definitions of such words as "marriage", "education", "law", "prayer", etc., with those given in any modern dictionary. They will probably be surprised at the great differences, and may come away with a renewed respect for this great American.
It's a great pleasure to handle such a well-produced book, and to read its definitions and ponder the great changes that have occurred in the meanings of words over the last 130 years. This is a book that should be in everyone's library, as providing a fund of wisdom, knowledge, and information that few modern books can even begin to approach.
