The Dake Bible is unique!

The Dake Bible is unique. No other study Bible in the world comes close to it. And while it may not be for everyone, we're convinced that there are a lot of people in the world who would be blessed by it. They just don't know it yet!

General History

Picture 1Dake Publishing, Inc. has been family-owned and operated since its inception in 1961. It is a Christian publishing company, boldly proclaiming
Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Birthed by the publication of The Dake Annotated Reference Bible, the company has grown out of the writing ministry of Rev. Finis Jennings Dake.
Dake was born in Iberia, Missouri, in 1902 - just four years before the famous Azuza Street Revival which became the foundation for modern Pentecostalism. He was the eighth of eleven children. Throughout his eighty-four years he pastored several churches, started a Bible school, and held numerous evangelistic meetings and lectures. His God-given ability to quote Scripture flawlessly without memorizing it earned him a reputation as the "Walking Bible" (see A True Story for Dake's testimony). He hosted a radio broadcast twice daily for thirteen years, answering any Scriptural question posed to him. In the midst of all this activity (which included over 100,000 hours of intensive Bible study), Dake raised a family with his wife, Dorothy, and wrote several books, as well as the huge volume of commentary notes in The Dake Annotated Reference Bible.
The New Testament portion of the Dake Bible (which included Psalms, Proverbs, and the book of Daniel) was first published in 1961. The complete Dake Bible became available in 1963 

Finis Jennings Dake: His Life and Ministry
The new biography of the author of the Dake Annotated Reference Bible!

Dake Bio SmallThe writings of Finis Jennings Dake have literally circled the world. His books God’s Plan for Man and Revelation Expounded have become standard reference works for Bible believers everywhere. It was Charisma and Christian Life magazine that called his monumental work, Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible, “The Pentecostal Study Bible.” And yet, while Christians everywhere enjoy his writings, benefiting from his simple and literal approach to the Word of God, little is known about the man himself.
In this factual and moving account of Dake’s life story, Leon Bible walks us through the life of a man whose writings have had a tremendous impact on the church world of our day.


by Finis J. Dake

I rejected Christianity in my youth, until I found some believers who lived the life they professed. Faced with truth backed by Christian example, I knew I had to make a decision. After weeks of struggling with my conscience, I chose to serve God the rest of my life and do His will, whatever it may be. I had the witness of the Spirit with my spirit that I was a child of God, the blood of Christ having cleansed me from all unrighteousness. I was baptized in water as an outward symbol of an inward work of Christ in my life.
But I was more hungry for God than ever before. I cried out for a closer walk with Him, to be filled with the
Holy Spirit. I spent hours in prayer and worship, seeking God.
After three months of wholehearted surrender, I received a great anointing of
the Spirit. A cool and rushing wind came over me. From the depths of my being came the “rivers of rushing water” that Jesus promised in John 7:37-39. Torrents of praise began to flow from my lips as I received in measure what the disciples had on the day of Pentecost. It was May, 1920, and I was seventeen years old.
Picture 1I was immediately able to quote hundreds of Scriptures without memorizing them. I also noticed a quickening of my mind to know what chapters and books various verses were found in. Before conversion, I had not read one full chapter of the Bible. This new knowledge of
Scripture was a gift to me, for which I give God the praise.
From the time of this special anointing until now, I have never had to memorize the thousands of scriptures I use in teaching. I just quote a verse when I need it, by the anointing of the Spirit.
I then began to study the Bible without ceasing, and have now spent around a hundred thousand hours digging into the wealth of its teachings.
From the first of my studies, I found the Bible to be simple and clear. Daily study, coupled with my ability to quote the Bible as I yielded to the Spirit, helped me “rightly divide the truth”
(2 Timothy 2:15). Difficult passages in prophecy and elsewhere did not seem mystifying to me, for what was unclear in one passage was made clear by other scriptures on the same subject. Hours of study provided a rich storehouse to draw from as I yielded to the Spirit. When I was eighteen I enrolled in a Bible Institute to prepare for the ministry. I soon learned that one must either believe what the Bible alone teaches, or spend his life wrestling with the confusing and varied interpretations of men. The professors did not agree among themselves on some of the basic truths, and a number even disagreed with what the Bible plainly stated on certain subjects.
I thus became acquainted with a perplexing array of doctrines. Some of them were in agreement with Scripture and could be proved when all passages dealing with the subject were examined. But others turned out to be “hand-me-down” theology from a former generation of preachers, many of whom were great in spite of their doctrinal errors.
I had to decide either to respect my gift and depend on God and the knowledge of the Word He had given me as a guide to determining scriptural truth, or go along with the crowd.
My decision was firm. I vowed to the Lord never to teach one thing I could not prove with two or three plain Scriptures, agreeing with Paul that “in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established”
(2 Cor. 13:1). Believing also that “no prophecy . . . is of any private interpretation” (to be interpreted without comparison with other Scriptures, 2 Pet. 1:20), I reasoned that the Bible is God’s Word in human language and means exactly what it says. Any interpretation which is out of harmony with what is plainly written must be rejected as the theory of man.
It was a big decision for a lad, and cost me a few friends now and again - friends who preferred to listen to almost anyone who had gray hair, rather than a youth just emerging from his teens. But my hair is gray too now, yet my decision remains the same. The prophecies, promises, admonitions and doctrines are there in the Bible the same as they were when I began quoting them years ago. They are in plain language, understandable by anyone who can read and will take time to look up an occasional word in the dictionary.
My early decision has paid off in many ways, one of them being letters I receive now and again from someone who says, “I didn’t have much use for your teaching years ago, but now I find your writings a great help and inspiration.” Such testimonies are my reward for carrying out my early vows to teach exactly what the Bible says on all subjects it deals with.
If I have inspired you to study God’s Word with an open mind; if I have influenced you to take
Scriptures literally; and if my testimony has made you hungry for God, His Word and His anointing, then I have accomplished the purpose I had in mind - that of blessing your life!

Prophetic Studies

Picture 1One of the outstanding differences between The Dake Annotated Reference Bible and other study Bibles is the close attention paid to the details of biblical prophecy. Contrary to some sensationalistic approaches, Dake's prophetic studies adhere to his principle of interpretation: take the Bible literally where at all possible. When the text is obviously figurative, then look for the literal meaning conveyed by it.
Prophetic Studies are just one of the many reasons why we think you'll agree that the Dake Bible is the ultimate study Bible!

Commentary Notes

The Dake Annotated Reference Bible has more commentary notes (approximately 35,000 total) than any other study Bible on the market today. As always, Dake's commentary follows his principle of interpretation: take the Bible literally where at all possible. When the text is obviously figurative, then look for the literal meaning conveyed by it.
In the broadest sense, every note in the Dake Bible is a commentary note. These notes contain Dake's comments. Here, though, they have identified different types of commentary, such as Chain Reference Studies, Biblical Context Studies, Word Studies, Theological Studies, Prophetic Studies and Dispensational Studies.
In addition to these specific categories of commentary, the Dake Bible is filled with notes which expound on the text in some meaningful way. To illustrate the quality of Dake's commentary, They have created several pages which exemplify the type of excellent study material you can find throughout the Dake Bible.
Commentary Notes are just one of the many reasons why we think you'll agree that the Dake Bible is the ultimate study Bible!
