He has devoted much of his life to promoting Day's life and legacy, editing Dorothy Day: Selected Writings, The Duty of Delight: The Diaries of Dorothy Day, and All the Way to Heaven: Selected Letters of Dorothy Day. Aside from his two Crossroad titles, he has also written The Saints' Guide to Happiness, and edited anthologies of Gandhi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Charles de Foucauld, and Flannery O'Connor.
