Biblical Definitions Restored

 

Webster considered "education useless without the Bible." And as a result he utilized God's written word as a key to the meaning of words.
This is the reason, the Webster 1828 is one of the most important reprint of the twentieth century, the essential tool of education for Christians. Compare definitions of such words as education, marriage, truth, and many more. Compare a few of these definitions in the chart below, you will be amazed to discover the secularization of our modern English language.
