I would like to know what everyone’s “go to” commentary is to accompany their study, sermon preparation, etc.

I have a few, but I am always searching for more.

*As a side note, a recommendation from you does not mean you agree with everything the commentators wrote in the commentary. I understand that we will all find something we disagree with in every commentary. I’m looking for “overall” or “for the most part” recommendations.

It always depends on the book being studied, Jarrod. I don’t tend to ever use single volume commentaries or stay within one set since they can be a mixed bag.

I like to say #DAKE so I can see Timothy Carter doing this 🙂

Nothings more detailed than dake.

First and formost it is Holy Spirit coupled with a Strongs. Knowing the orginal meaning of a word cna ghange an entire though process! I also have a Dake, but also with PC study bible software the are 27 translations to look through, with commentaries going back to the 1800s and earlier.

The #DAKE is in the details 🙂 John Conger Ricky Grimsley

I use bestcommentaries.com for recommendations on unfamiliar books of the Bible. It is a user-based rating system which gives you an idea of which commentaries are most popular

Derrick Harmon [11/27/2015 10:11 PM]
Um, Dakes is one of the worst. His commentary notes could lead you to believe he is unorthodox.

John Conger [11/27/2015 10:28 PM]
I don’t agree with everything Dake says (I’m mid trib, open theist, not a Trinitarian) and have no respect for who he was as a person but it makes you think, gives good info and honestly I’m not sure I’ve read any book I’ve totally agree with. Van impe, MacArthur, are way off. ryrie, was ok. and some like swaggart and to a lesser extent hagee are basically rehashed dakes

John Kissinger [11/28/2015 7:30 AM]
Nice observation on Dake. Which notes apart from Christ sonship do you find unorthodox Derrick Harmon ???

Timothy Carter [11/29/2015 1:39 PM]
We must take each book individually. Its difficult to make a blanket statement. Well difficult not really the right word it is unwise to make a blanket statement.

John Ruffle [11/29/2015 3:14 PM]
Early Church Fathers.

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 3:29 PM]
Early Church Fathers rock!

Derrick Harmon [11/29/2015 3:33 PM]
I took some classes with the renowned Pentecostal Theologian R. Hollis Gause who knew Finis Dake personally. He never had anything good to say about him. What is interesting is how the Scofield Bible has had more influence over Pentecostals than the Dake Bible. http://www.equip.org/article/dakes-dangerous-doctrine/

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 3:48 PM]
Never heard Dr. Gause comment on Dake – has anyone else? Timothy Carter Ilya Okhotnikov Bill Coble

Ilya Okhotnikov [11/29/2015 3:53 PM]
Nope, haven’t.

John Conger [11/29/2015 4:34 PM]
No but he went to jail for pedophilia. No respect for him

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 4:37 PM]
So was Charlie Chaplin under the same Mann Act [acquitted]

Charles Page [11/29/2015 4:40 PM]
no, not Dr Gause???

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 4:40 PM]
Timothy and he’s back after MI[turkey eating]A since 11/21 Charles Page

John Conger [11/29/2015 4:54 PM]
Yeah but he was married and plead guilty. Not much wiggle room there.

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 8:27 PM]
Charles Page is back after MIA turkey eating since 11/21…

    Matthew Henry for the facts. Spurgeon for the communication. Finney for the drive, Srongs for definition and the similiar verses and Vines for the as used per verse. but with the new phone bible apps you can pray more and lay it out quickly when you have the received from the Lord what it is He has for His people. then the foundation and impetus and compeling argument will fall into place. when all else fails throw yourself on the mercy of God they are His people after all and talk about Jesus. if you cant do that quit. But generaly speaking any of the doctrines of the church should be taught with authority and understanding at any given time (w/ time for prayer of course)… does that make sense?
