Dake’s Annotated Bible: New Testament (#2)

Year: 1961
Decade: 1960s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible for The New Testament, a 1961 first printing that includes addition of Daniel, Psalms and Proverbs.

“The Dake Annotated Reference Bible, published in 1963, represented the first Pentecostal study Bible. Dake’s study Bible has sold hundreds of thousands of copies and, despite the controversy surrounding it, has helped shape Pentecostal thought, both as a foundation and as an influence on later Pentecostal preachers such on Benny Hinn and Jimmy Swaggart. The Dake Bible continues to be popular with over 40,000 copies sold each year by the Dake family ministry.

This should not be considered in anyway an endorsement of the Charismatic movement, pre-millennial eschatology, dispensationalism, or Dake’s personal failings.

Dake lived in Georgia and was affected by the segregationist attitude of his times. He thus recommends separation of the White and Black population in his commentaries of the Bible. These segregationist comments were taken out of later printings of his Annotated Bible, and thus one must find a copy printed in 1961 to find them.
