His recent publications include contributions to The American Conservative, The Spectator (London), The National Interest and Modern Intellectual History. He is also the principal lecturer in seven of "The Great Courses" made by The Teaching Company of Chantilly, Virginia. He speaks in many parts of the United States and leads college-level teaching workshops. In the late 1980s he wrote a short history of American biographies of Jesus Christ.

His scholarship has been widely reviewed in the leading history journals. Professor Lawrence Moore of Cornell University says "Any writer who has attempted to track a subject through a long stretch of time appreciates how difficult it is to balance the requirement of inclusiveness with a consistent elaboration of central themes. Patrick Allitt in his confident survey of American religion since World War II succeeds in this task far better than most and has produced a volume of immense value to university students, general readers, and scholars needing a reliable reference source."
