I am requesting that Logos make the Dake Annotated KJV Reference Bible available as a Logos Resource.

This is a significant work that deserves your careful consideration.

 

At the following web page, this description can be found -

Dake Bible Information

The purpose of this work is to give in one volume the helps a student of the Bible needs from many books—Bible Commentaries, Dictionary, complete Concordance, Dispensational Truth, Topical Text Book, Bible Synthesis, Doctrines, Prophetic Studies, and others.

Special features include nearly 9,000 informative chapter and verse headings; 500,000 cross-references throughout 35,000 notes and comments; a summary of interesting facts at the end of each Book; and lists of all the commands, prophecies, promises, prayers, questions, sins, apostasies, complaints, failures, plagues, judgments, healings, wars, miracles, assassinations, kings, queens, dukes, lakes, rivers, farm products, valleys, mountains, cities, empires, nations, etc.

Thousands of texts are amplified and there are many renderings from various versions. Important Hebrew and Greek words are given with definitions and various ways translated. Obsolete and difficult English words are defined.

Parables, types, symbols, fables, allegories, figures of speech and numerous idioms are dealt with. Alleged contradictions and seeming difficulties of the text are made clear. Bible and secular history are harmonized as well as the Gospels.

There are enlightening notes on astronomy, bible animals, reptiles, birds, insects, trees, plants, minerals, precious stones, weights, measures, coin values, and other things which will enrich the reader’s enjoyment of the Word of God. Modern-day costs are given for the tabernacle of Moses, Solomon’s temple, and the sacrifices wherever they are mentioned throughout Scripture.

Of particular interest to ministers will be the wealth of sermon material in the 3,400 note-columns—over 8,000 outlines on a great variety of subjects, and 2,000 illustrations.

The general principle adhered to throughout is that of literalizing instead of spiritualizing. Statements of fact and historical accounts are accepted as such. THE RULE OBSERVED IS: Take the Bible literally wherein it is at all possible; if symbolic, figurative or typical language is used, then look for the literal truth it intends to convey.

During the author’s 100,000 hours in 43 years of searching the Scriptures this all-important and fundamental principle of interpretation has been strictly and consistently followed. Novel interpretations have been rejected, and theories supported by personal opinion alone have been laid aside.

In the preparation of this work, therefore, the aim has been to prove the teachings of the notes contained in this work with plain Bible references. The reader is invited to see for himself what these related passages are actually saying on any given subject found in the notes. In this way he will learn well the lesson of “rightly dividing the Word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15); and he will see that the Holy Bible is in perfect harmony throughout.

Notes for the entire Bible are being prayerfully presented in the hope that they may be used of God to bring a simple and clear understanding of His Word to the average person, and that it will inspire him with faith to received the full benefits of the Gospel for body, soul, and spirit.

David,

Yes, I know. I have it in Large Print.

As a Logos user, I want to leverage all of the powerful tools in Logos so that with 500,000 cross references, etc., I will not have to spend the rest of my life flipping pages. I want to hover and/or single-click to view the reference. Logos would allow me to be much more productive. I need this resource in Logos. Please God, hear my prayer ..... amen!

They have it in wordsearch bible software. I say this to point out that it should not be a problem to get it in electronic form for logos. 

Having said that, I would love to see it in Logos.

Tes,

I don't have Dake in Wordsearch. Can you tell me about it. Do the cross-references and such hypertext link for a popup when you hover over them? Do they link to the passage when clicked? I'd be interested in your experience. Thanks

David,

When I spoke with the distributor recently, he told me that they will not be reprinting the Large Print edition. When the current stock runs out, that is it.It is being replaced by another edition which is physically a little smaller but with the font at 8.5-9 point, a 3 column version like the Large Print.

Yes they do. I did a hover and a click...it worked as you describe and if the resource wasn't opened, it opened it in a new window. I also noticed that since I had my commentary window linked to my Bible window and clicked on a verse, it changed the commentary to the appropriate volume in the series.

Hi Dennis, Bill has already explained it beautifully. I want only simply  to present it on a  screenshot.

Blessings in Christ.
