    I went through several words in Webster's dictionary and found that the explanation of the word also came with a bible reference which I found helpful. I also used the Strong's concordance to check the meaning of the word and found that the meaning was the same.

    This is a great tool to use in bible study to help you fully understand the meaning of words found in scripture.

    Biblical fidelity restored to our English vernacular; substandard print quality, not comprehensive for teaching

    I bought this out of loyalty to 19th century Christian ideals that are largely absent from society today. It truly does help to preserve and restore biblical definitions to our venacular that are being erradicated by secularism. That said, it's a substandard fascimile copy, not a computerized reprint. My eyes tire quickly reading the small, unclear print. A lot of common words my daughter tries to look up aren't defined. It's an elegant and colorful work, reflecting a Christian American heritage, but it's not a comprehensive dictionary by any means. There's great patriotic and nostalgic value to having this on your bookshelf. But don't buy this believing this can perform as a stand-alone resource for teaching kids how to spell. I can't recommend this to any budget-conscious friends when an online edition is available. Buy it, but spend your $54.99 understanding its best applications and limitations. I'd appreciate framing a couple pages from this dictionary to remind the kids of how the English language used to be defined, and then use the free online version for definitions. Entrepenural opportunity?

    I had put off buying this book because of the cost. It is worth every cent, I have used it for many definitions since purchase and this has helped greatly. I use the NIV version of the Bible, but it still is a good help for our English language. Getting back to the basis of our grammar and usage of word are excellent.

    I have been so thrilled with this dictionary. Not only is it a thorough dictionary but it includes sentences from great literature and from the Bible. Some of the definitions are, of course, historical rather than contemporary for example: Awful - "1. That strikes with awe; that fills with profound reverence; as the awful majesty of Jehovah." But includes an explanation of more common usage; "Our common people use this word in the sense of frightful, ugly, detestable" as well as a reference to how Shakespeare used the word. It is a wonderful tool for word study and a great accompaniment to a classical education.
