Do you know the secret to access the most important thing a human being can possess? It cannot be purchased with gold or silver in a shop or department store or online. It is not found in the university or any other school established by mankind. It’s origin is not in the world of politics or government or in any human institution. It truly is a rare commodity among the people of the earth. It is where freedom, life, love, hope, faith, purity, truth, goodness, and peace abounds. Do you know about this greatest of all possessions? Do you know what it is? Wisdom leads you to it. Wisdom shows you where it is. Wisdom knows it. Are you listening to wisdom? She cries out daily to the children of mankind, and invites us to spend some time with her. She has a magnificent table set, and invites us to dine with her. She has something for us to discover. It is holy, and like His Name, it is incomprehensible. It is deeply personal and richly intimate. It gives substantial meaning to our existence.. It is our only salvation. It is an authentic relationship with the Personal God, who made the universe. Intimacy with the living God is what this book is about. It’s what Proverbs is about. Come to dinner and partake.

This book analyses Noah Webster's and Samuel Johnson's use of verbal examples in their dictionaries as a means of giving guidance on word usage. The author's major interest lies in elucidating how uniquely Webster, who was originally a grammarian, made use of verbal examples. In order to achieve this purpose, the author provides chapters based on types of entry words in their functional contexts. Johnson's selection of sources of citations and the frequency of his quoting citations tended to vary strongly according to the type of entry word; he also supplied invented examples rather than citations when he thought it especially necessary to clarify the use of a word. By contrast, with the exception of biblical ones, almost all of Webster's citations were taken from Johnson's »Dictionary«. However, Webster significantly made full use of such citations to express his view on word usage, which differs essentially from Johnson's. Besides, Webster had a strong tendency to quote phrases and sentences from the Bible for the same purpose.

Jesus commissioned believers to "make disciples of all nations," which, according to Bible Commentator Matthew Henry, means to "do your utmost to make the nations Christian nations." How do we make the nations Christian? How do we build Godly nations? The Bible teaches that if a people obey God's laws they will have liberty, peace, prosperity, and justice. But we must obey all of God's laws to experience the abundance of God's blessing. To the extent we obey in all areas of life, is the extent we will experience the Godly fruit of liberty. The Founders of America understood this vital truth and attempted to build the nation upon the precepts of God, and though not without fault, their efforts produced the best example of a Christian nation in history. Thus there are many important lessons we can learn from the American Founders as we seek to build Godly nations today. This book examines the mandate for building Godly nations, lessons from America's Christian history, and how to apply Biblical principles to governing the nations.
