Reviewed by (David Hill, Virginia Beach, VA) - Dake's Study Notes
I realize that not everyone agrees with Dake's stance on many passages. I'm afraid I surely have to disagree with his understanding in more than one place. However, his work does provide insights, thoughts, opinions that one may not have considered. And he supports his opinions with scripture, now we may disagree with his understanding of those, but it is far better than simply giving opinions without support.

First of all e-sword is free !!! Nothing is free how did e-sword do it !!! I have a really great Dakes KJV Bible. I have used e-sword since 2011. At first it was hard to get use to e-sword and not holding my Bible. Eventually I really started using it a lot and now every day. My references were only a click away. I like the Dakes notes and wanted them for a long time. This man spent his life taking all of the notes he wrote during his life. He has a lot of summaries too. I use to have to thumb through all of the pages to read his summaries and his gleanings for each verse in the Bible. All I have to do now is click a tab and I can see his notes on the verse I am reading at the time. I use other commentaries too. I use J Vernon McGee's commentary, Bible Knowledge, Believers Bible, UCRT Cross Refences. I also have the NASB ,NAS 77, King James and ESV. I can also do word studies with the Stongs Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries, New American Standard Exhaustive Concordance,Vine New Testament and OT Dictionaries. Also I have Nelsons complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts. I also have other material and resources and if I used the Books it would be cumbersome and time consuming and just unfortunately wear me out! Everything is a click away and if I want to share scripture or write a paper it is so easy to copy the text !!!I really cannot share how this has made such a big difference in my life because I can cover everything in lightening speed. I often wondered what reward in Heaven the people that make this available will have waiting for them. It is such a huge Ministry to edify the brethren. Well done !!! Tip copy your Journal Study and Topic notes and save them in a handy place.

The Dake's Commentary is one of the most complete and detailed commentaries there is. Not for the novice and even for the learned it takes some time to learn to navigate. I would have given it 5 stars but I do not hold to Mr. Dakes Apostolic views. But for any individual who is rooted and grounded this is a great study tool.

It was not in the format I expected. I expected it to be in a separate book or booklet form too. That would have made it easier for me to use as a study aid rather than having to follow the references back and forth like in the actual bible. I love all of his reference notes but when you are studying, it is cumbersome to have to search for a reference and lose your place where you are studying. But, having said that, I do like it.

F.J. Dake: Modernity's "Enoch"! (8/14/2018)
Reviewed by (Jeffrey Ady, Honolulu, HI) - Dake's Study Notes
I've owned--and worn out--two Dake Study Bibles since coming to the Lord over 40 years ago. As a father, a pastor, and as a disciple of Jesus who just wants a STRAIGHT, "fundamentalist" systematic theology and grounded commentary as I read God's Word, I have valued Finis Jennings Dake's work. So glad his children have taken up the torch.
Now, I own numerous Bible translations, but keep mainly to the Dake and Amplified (Classic), moving back and forth as I need. But, when reading the Amplified, I miss Bake's columnar notes and "Complete Concordance - Cyclopedic Index"...primarily because either the Lockman Foundation or Zondervan evidently went with a standard Concordance. The latter is good, but Dake's resources take First Prize.
I must confess that, in the earlier years, I often paid more attention to the commentary/notes columns on each page instead of the Biblical text.
AND NOW--as the curtain is falling at the end of the Age of Grace (Dake was a dispensationalist), you've made available his great work for my Mac(s)!!!! Praise the Lord and God bless you!
