Dake Annotated Reference Bible
Notes, Topics, Lists, & Chart
Many years ago we aquired a Dake Reference Bible and we are still amazed at the amount of material Finis J. Dake put into it. Although I don't agree with some of Dake's doctrine, his Bible is full of countless notes, topics, and lists of Bible data that are very helpful. Dake spent more than 20 years of research, over 100,000 hours, in compiling this reference Bible which includes over 35,000 commentary notes which contain over 500,000 cross-references.
One of the most valuable features are the 1000s of lists Dake has compiled. He developed lists of material we have not seen anywhere else. Here is a small section of titles of his lists of seven things,
- Seven Better Things In Psalms
- Seven Blessings For Considering The Poor
- Seven Blessings Of David
- Seven Blessings Of Godly Sorrow-It Promotes
- Seven Blessings Of Joseph
- Seven Blessings Of Perfection
- Seven Blessings Of The Corinthian Church
- Seven Blessings Of The Promises
- Seven Blessings Of Waiting On God
- Seven Blessings Promised By God
- Seven Blessings To Those Who Walk Uprightly
- 350 More "Seven" Lists!
There are over 5800 lists and topics that can be easily filtered by an entered string.
The publisher says about Dake's Bible,
Thousands of passages are amplified. Obscure readings are made clear. Ancient customs are explained, along with matters of history, culture and geography. Greek and Hebrew words and idioms are handled. In addition, parables, types, symbols, allegories and figures of speech are dealt with. Dispensational issues are treated in a systematic fashion, along with hundreds of details of biblical prophecy.
With our Bible Analyzer edition of the Dake Bible you get even more data than in the printed edition. Such as,
- All the Hebrew and Greek words are tagged with Strong's Numbers which makes the Strong's dictionary data available with mouseover or click.
- All the topics and lists are in a Dictionary module and viewable by mouseover or click from links in the Notes module.
- All the Topic and List titles are instantly filtered by typing in the Dictionary Entry Box.
- The referenced Bible text in the notes is bold red.
- Plus, Dake's chart The Plan of the Ages is included!
Finis J.Dake was a Pentecostal/Charismatic minister who was not without controversy. He held a few doctrines that are not considered "orthodox" by many today. As with any other resource, Dake's material must be read with a discerning eye. We believe there is much that can be gained from his material in spite of these issues. As with any commentary or reference work one must "feed on the clover and spit out the thornes."
Along with the Notes and Topics, included in this bundle is Dake's large and detailed chart, "The Plan of the Ages." This full-color chart is patterned after Clarence Larkin's charts and also has mapped hotspots over the Scripture references. This huge chart is nearly 5000 pixels wide and is viewable in the Bible Analyzer Image viewer.
