Dr. David Gushee: Ranked among the world’s most-read Christian writers by BGN wire service

As Dr. David Gushee’s publishing house for his two landmark books—Changing Our Mind and Introducing Christian Ethics—we were not surprised to learn that Baptist Global News (BGN) found that he ranks among the world’s most-read Christian writers via their wire service.

BGN reported on its ranking of readership for its most-popular columns throughout the calendar year 2022:

Baptist News Global’s 2022 Top 15 list of opinion pieces represents the range of weighty and controversial issues that faced the church and nation in 2022, with columns on race, gender and sexual identity running neck and neck with those about biblical and theological interpretation, Russia’s detention and release of Brittney Griner and Samford University’s treatment of LGBTQ students and alumni.

High on that list of most-read columns was Dr. Gushee’s July 2022 column, headlined:
