His works include God's Pilgrims, Life in the Word, The Church, The Churches and the Kingdom, The Hope of Israel, Ruth, The Satisfied Stranger, The Wonders of Bible Chronology, The World and its God, The Last Call to the Godly Remnant, More Than a Prophet, Dispensationalism Justifies the Crucifixion, Evolution at the Bar and Things Which Soon Must Come to Pass.

He married Emily Johnston Rockwood in 1882 and had two daughters, Margaret F. Mauro and Isabel Rockwood Mauro (later Mrs. Charles Stratton French). Together with his daughter Margaret, Mauro was a passenger on the British ocean liner RMS Carpathia when it rescued the passengers of the Titanic in April 1912.
