It is a perfect source for the serious student of the Bible. It could be too overwhelming for those who only want surface information -- Dakes digs deep and is packed with teachings and insights for anyone hungry to learn. A very thorough study of the Bible.
I love the 10 point font! I think that the book summaries should be at the beginning of each book and not at the end. Dake believes in God but just like the Apostle Paul he does not know that Jesus is God, the fullnest of the Godhead bodily so you really have to be careful about trusting his annotations to the letter. However, I do love the collective history/information of bible times and customs but not his opinions so much because we all have one. Dake contradicts himself concerning the diety of Jesus and the Holy Ghost.
The is the BEST study bible anyone could purchase and, probably, the only one you will ever need to study the scriptures. What I like best is that each book is categorized and broken into topical points and lists that make it very clear. I am amazed that someone was able to put this together. Buy it. You will not be disappointed. I showed it to my son who loves indepth studies and he is getting one.
The bible is full of notes and information. The pages are very busy and of course all of the theological points I honestly do not accept but to be frank that can be said for most study type bibles on the market today. The only problem I had was the print, it was small. I would like to get one with bigger print.
