I cannot recommend this bible highly enough!
This is a King James version with the most comprhensive notes and references of any bible I have seen. Each page contains four columns, the center two being scripture and the outer two notes and references. There are also extensive notes at the end of each book, as well as a summary containing the date and place, the author, theme, purpose and statistics. Symbols indicate prophecy, promise, command or message from God.
According to the preface, there are 500,000 cross-references and 35,000 notes! It is mind-boggling to say the least that a person could put such a work together without the use of a computer.
There is also a complete concordance and atlas in the back, as well as many other helpful aids for an in-depth study of the Word.
The only criticism, if you could call it that, is that the print is small. But get out the specs and dig in, you'll get a blessing.
One final thing, with such comprehensive references, if you don't find yourself in complete agreement with the author's notes you will still have a wonderful time with this bible.

This has got to be one of the very best books that I have ever purchased. It is easy to read and understand. Loaded with extras to make studying the bible a pleasure. This is one of the best gifts that can be given to a person that wants to learn more about the word of God.

This is a wonderful Study Bible that is Beautifully done. One nice feature is that prophecy's are marked with a black star, promises with a black triangle, Commands with a black circle and message from God with a Black Box. The Bible uses the King James text witch is an excellent version, its two sided columned and has notes on the side columns and bottom. The notes are conservative Christian, evangelical, and Dispensational. The Notes help define and explain the text, key words are shown to us in the Original Hebrew and Greek and are defined. There are also Book outlines and information at the end of each book as well as notes which contain questions and where they are answered in the text, lists, Doctrines, Words study's, Character studies, and much more. In the Back of the Bible are Maps, Diagrams, Dispensational Charts, and a complete Concordance and Cyclopedia index. This Bible is a wonderful Study Tool.

The Dake Annotated Reference Bible is simply the best biblical scholar resource that I've ever come across. I was pleasantly surprised to have received exactly what I've ordered - delivered on time.

This book has an indepth search and explanation of scripture. I being only a layperson, it has helped me to understand so many things in the Bible that had before hand gone unnoticed. I am enjoying studying like never before. I highly recommend this Bible to anyone who has a love for the Word.

Great product, great price. Much cheaper than from Dake's direct website. Glad that I got the large print...it's larger but still small. It's also a red-letter. It hasn't been set down since it was opened.

Though, as an Independent Baptist, I don't agree with Dake's conclusions every time, this is a masterful work, truly comprehensive beyond any other study Bible I've had, and I've had quite a few. The study helps alone would fill multiple regular volumes, yet they are at your fingertips right in your Bible. It also comes in large print.

The only disadvantage I saw was very little space for notes (all the space is filled up with study helps) and maybe the concordance could be a little more complete for a work this extensive.

I received the large print-leather edition yesterday and returned it immediately. The large print wasn't large at all because the pages are too crowded (4 columns), even though the book is 8.5 x 11. As I flipped through the pages the letters were already fading and the printing (title, etc) on the spine of the book was fading as well. For the price that is being charged I expected excellent typesetting and time withstanding pages and cover. The print doesn't appear to be computer generated. Maybe I am being too harsh, perhaps the publishers intended to preserve a manuscript appearance. It was a turn off for me. However, the information contained therein was substantial and impressive, I just wish they would significantly improve the appearance (including type size and spacing) and the overall quality of the book. If this is done, I would certainly purchase another one.
