Noah Webster's description of the Bible

The Bible is the chief moral cause of all that is 'good', and the best corrector of all that is 'evil', in human society; the 'best' book for regulating the temporal concerns of men, and the 'only book' that can serve as an infallible guide to future felicity.

-- from the Preface to Noah Webster's 1833 limited revision of the King James Bible.
