Among various scholarly articles, he has written Habitat for Humanity: Building Private Homes, Building Public Religion (Temple, 2001) and Sense of the Faithful: How American Catholics Live Their Faith (Oxford, 2009). He is currently conducting a research project – tentatively titled The Varieties of Irreligious Experience – on atheists in the United States today.
