Product Description

In this masterful biography, professor and political historian K. Alan Snyder unfolds the life, times and political thought of Noah Webster, America's premier post-revolutionary educator. Snyder recounts how Webster rose from obscurity to become the father of early American education, and how his dramatic conversion to Christianity influenced the nation from colonial times to today. The son of a penniless farmer, and descendant of Pilgrim WIlliam Bradford, Webster achieved astounding succcess in influencing early-American intellectual and moral thought. But much about Noah Webster's life will come as a surprise to readers. As an entrepreneurial schoolmaster, Webster not only compiled and edited the nation's first textbooks and dictionaries, but he also championed the use of the Bible in schools. After his conversion, he abandoned the rational philosophies of the Enlightenment and evangelized his convctions that biblical truth out to be the bedrock for all civil government and education.
