I’ve published at a bunch of different places over the years, but the places I write most regularly for are:
Mere Orthodoxy– Theology, politics, history, culture, and whatever else the editors let me get away with. They also host my Doctors Without Boredom blog, where I write shorter posts that don’t really fit well on this website and share interesting links. Many of these links are then aggregated into the Read In Case Of Emergency newsletter my friends and I run.
Comment– The online and print magazine associated with Cardus, a really great think tank publishing great research and writing on the common good.
Plough– The Bruderhof publish this beautiful quarterly featuring the best Christian writers of our day on the topics that are most important. I’m honored to be a part of their community in a small way.
Christianity Today– In 2016, I wrote a column every other month called “Bodies and Souls” about public health. They also published my first cover story, Why Christians of All People Should Get Their Vaccines.
Some places I don’t write for much anymore but you may find my archives interesting:
Books & Culture– I love this magazine’s approach to thoughtful engagement with good books and their desire to not just talk about great books, but also to wrestle with ideas and cultural currents that would otherwise not get highlighted. Sadly, Books & Culture ended in 2016; you can read my eulogy for it here.
Christ and Pop Culture– Christ and Pop Culture because they’re willing to take things very seriously… or not. And both are totally okay!
Off The Page– This ministry of Our Daily Bread has featured some of my shorter articles, mostly about the practical implications of “life together” for Christians in our day and age.
The American Conservative– Mostly I’ve written stuff here about Baltimore and community development.
Some other articles of note:
We Already Jumped– Athwart Magazine helped me find a place for this piece about the strange way that my teachers in medical school wanted to talk about virtue ethics but couldn’t quite get it together.
Faith, Fatalism, and Freddie Gray– Written in the midst of the Baltimore Uprising in April 2015 and published in First Things, I explored the structural forces that foment injustice and how the Church can counteract them.
Raising a Molecular Family in an Atomic Age– I wrote for Fare Forward about what I think are the most important aspects of parenting in an era where there are more demands on parents than ever before and more forces pulling families apart than ever before.
Maryland Family Doctor: Challenging Patients– I was guest-editor for this edition of the Maryland Academy of Family Physicians’ quarterly journal and wrote the editorial about how family doctors are uniquely suited to help the most challenging patients in our healthcare system.
Why Should A Straight Person Care About Spiritual Friendship? – I’ve loved and followed the Spiritual Friendship blog for a while, so it was a real honor to write about their work and why it’s so important for Christians to think through the questions of friendship and community.
I also contributed a chapter about International Economics in the book Cultural Engagement.
I also write music and sometimes record it with my friends. If it’s decent enough, I’ll post it on SoundCloud.
I published the first 13 chapters of my novel Trousseau Syndrome and I am slowly working on finishing it. It’s about patients and doctors in Baltimore that explores themes of class, community, health, and spirituality. Just imagine if Flannery O’Connor wrote Season 6 of The Wire and replaced all the drug dealers with physicians.
