Konkel is well-versed in Ancient Near Eastern history and archeology, and he does a nice job of commenting on not just the Hebrew but also the Greek texts of Kings when discussing textual difficulties. But the "Bridging the Gap" and "Contemporary Significance" sections usually fall flat (with a couple happy exceptions, especially when he discusses the temple). The writing is also choppy and disjointed, and sometimes seems like a random list of facts.
