Noah Webster and the Reformation of America $6.95

Noah Webster affected the course of education in early America more than any other person. He wrote a series of textbooks including a speller, grammar, reader, and U.S. history. His famous "Blue-Back Speller" sold over 100 million copies from 1783 through the 1800s, and was designed to allow individuals to be self-taught. Webster wrote the first exhaustive English dictionary, translated his own version of the Bible, helped to found a college, started the first magazine in America, and formed a newspaper. He was one of the first persons to publicly promote a constitutional convention in the 1780s. He secured copyright legislation on the state and national levels, and he served in civil government in many capacities.

Webster spent his entire adult life working to reform America and to provide a foundation of liberty, happiness, and prosperity for all citizens. He understood that ideas have consequences, that the battle for the future of our country would be waged in the market place of ideas, and that those adhering to Godly truth must enter into the battle in every conceivable sphere. Webster's life gives us a great example of how to bring reform to America, or any nation, today. A look at his life and accomplishments reveal what we need to do, where we need to be involved, strategies for bringing reform, proper motives and reasons for action, and the fruit we can expect from planting Godly seeds.
