He has co-edited a book on the spiritual care of the dying, Safe Passage: A Global Spiritual Sourcebook for Care at the End of Life (Oxford University Press, 2014). He has also written a book on nursing ethics, Caring Matters Most: The Ethical Significance of Nursing (Oxford University Press, 2017).
