His evaluation of an 88-campus, Lilly Endowment initiative, The Purposeful Graduate: Why Colleges Must Talk to Students about Vocation, was published in May 2015 by the University of Chicago Press. Presently, he is wrapping up a collaborative project on the Changing Spirituality of Emerging Adults that included a national survey of twentysomethings in America, in-depth interviews with more than 200 young adults, and ethnographic study of 11 congregations that attract scores of young adults.
