Some of his publications on Zambian Christianity, on the Luangwa Valley, on witchcraft and Satanism, culture change, and on healing are available on the FENZA website (fenza.org/documents). A forthcoming publication ("Coping with unseen worlds: demons, witchcraft, and Satanism") proposes concrete steps and useful procedures and rites when helping families affected by spiritual forces in a holistic way.
