Burge is a pastor in the American Baptist Church.

"Burge's books and articles are truly essential." --Perry Bacon Jr., The Washington Post

"There is nothing like facts to get in the way of our opinions, and I'm especially a fan of Ryan Burge's ability to blow the lid off of cherished but mistaken thinking. Each of these twenty myths is worthy of debunking." --Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary

"Americans love bad statistics--particularly the kind that prove what we already feel. But math does not care about our feelings, so sometimes we need a reminder of the facts. Ryan Burge's 20 Myths about Religion and Politics in America is just the book we need to set the record straight and help us better understand the facts today." --Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College

"Burge's straightforward writing and artful presentation of data cut through many of the misconceptions that plague our national dialogue about politics and religion. Can a clearer understanding of the facts help with such polarizing topics? There is only one way to find out." --Arthur E. Farnsley II, the Project on Religion and Urban Culture 2.0 and the Association of Religion Data Archives
