His most popular work is his satirical search for Satan in The Devil Wears Nada.

He is the co-creator and co-editor of The Peaceable Kingdom Series.

York belongs to the Mennonite tradition that has a 500-year history of Christian pacifism.[2] He has written extensively on the North American Christians' complicity with power and suggests a return to a more diasporic understanding of Christian practice.[3] He emphasizes the witness of Christian anarchists[4] such as Dorothy Day, and Daniel and Philip Berrigan.

He teaches at Virginia Wesleyan College[5] in Norfolk, VA. He previously taught at Elon University and Western Kentucky University.
