Item Description...
"I applaud this . . . value-centered, family-oriented dictionary."
--The Reverend Billy Graham

A Dictionary Resource for the Whole Family

The aim of Webster's American Family Dictionary is unique and challenging: it is to capture and record the standard vocabulary of American English in a way that reflects the common ethical, moral, religious, social, and civic values of mainstream Americans. It is, in short, both a lexical and cultural record of standard American English at the dawn of the 21st century.

A family reference that goes beyond removing offensive language, Webster's American Family Dictionary reflects the language and cultural values of most American families. While remaining inclusive enough for use through the college level, this new dictionary also covers special categories that are not typically treated in other standard dictionaries, such as:

the Bible
religious notables
cultural literacy
American history and civics
American folklore
popular proverbs and sayings
world history
world religious

The most comprehensive dictionary of its kind, Webster's American Family Dictionary has 116,000 entries, 135,000 definitions, and 300 illustrations, maps, and charts. In addition, we have included important documents that define American cultural and religious traditions:

Declaration of Independence
Ten Commandments
Sermon on the Mount
Amendments to the Constitution
Gettysburg Address

Webster's American Family Dictionary provides expanded definitions and biblical references, not typically found in other nonsectarian vocabulary resources, for terms such as burning bush and crown of thorns. Additionally, the Topical Index of Selected Key Terms will provide starting points for further study. Most importantly, definitions and discussions of controversial ideas and entries are treated with sensitivity

The First Modern American Dictionary to Cover the Bible and Our Contemporary Language

Not since Noah Webster created the first American dictionary has a guide to our language covered both important Bible terms and the essential vocabulary of the modern home, school, and office.

The dictionary that reflects your values
A valuable reference for the entire family
Clear definitions essential for understanding difficult and controversial topics
"The new Webster's American Family Dictionary should be very helpful for anyone interested in the full meaning of words, expanded to include their historical, literary, and religious connotations."
--Jimmy Carter

"I think Noah Webster would have been proud to see his name affiliated with this dictionary, which is in keeping with his original concept of what a dictionary should be."
--Billy Graham

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Comprehensive Yet Suitable For All Ages  Sep 15, 2007
My daughter is an advanced reader and has pretty much outgrown our children's dictionary. Because of her young age, I'd obviously been very concerned about letting her use our regular dictionary. There was one word we looked up that was on the same page as a term for a sex act, yikes! The "Webster's American Family Dictionary" is perfect for us since it's a basically a sanitized version of the "Webster's College Dictionary". It is comprehensive enough for our needs (135,000 definitions) while still being appropriate for all ages. Highly recommended!
A Most Excellent Family Resource  Jun 14, 1999
After having searched for some time for a good school/family reference source (and unfortunately being frequently alarmed and offended at many of the "definitions" in other works) I am pleased to say I have found none better than "Webster's American Family Dictionary." It truly lives up to the cover statements giving comprehensive coverage of our modern issues while yet respecting and preserving our religious and cultural heritage, the Bible, and common decency. And it is done without a deprecating patronizing tone! Thank you Random House! I highly recommend this dictionary for family and school use.
