He has given many professional papers at the Evangelical Theological Society and was a contributor of introductory and study notes on 1 and 2 Chronicles in The Ryrie Study Bible.

The site, Tel Qasile, had both Philistine and Israelite occupations and yielded the first Philistine temples to be discovered in Israel.
