Our list of the most popular articles of 2023 varies greatly. While the list includes a couple of articles highlighting good news (e.g., a pastor’s wedding) and major interest in an entertainment story, the list includes plenty of unfortunate and shocking news.

This list is of our most popular articles of 2023. Click the headline or photo to be taken to the respective articles.

This bit of news concerning popular pastor and author Tony Evans was likely a surprise to those who follow his ministry. However, it seems members of his church, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, had some inkling that Evans would remarry. Our article about the eventual private wedding ceremony was also one of our most popular articles of 2023: Tony Evans Marries New Bride Carla Crummie in Private Wedding Ceremony.

Bishop Carlton Pearson‘s death was a shock to many, as it seems few of his followers were aware that he had previously battled cancer. In remission for years, the cancer returned this year. However, our article about his death was more popular than our article about Pearson finally entering hospice care. That article is also among our most popular articles of 2023: ‘Gospel of Inclusion’ Preacher Bishop Carlton Pearson Enters Comfort Care Amid Recurrent Cancer.
