Camosy's books focus on a wide variety of contemporary issues. From distribution of health care resources, to religious/secular dialogue, to care and treatment of animals, to abortion, his work takes on some of Western culture's most emotional and polarizing issues. But Camosy's work moves beyond the lazy, binary views which often artificially create our culture of polarization. The result is a fresh, new, and welcome take on each of the issues he considers —
