She's still doing well. Don't buy the spin. Churches still buy everything she writes.

The Atlantic wrote:This may seem like an uncontroversial stance. But in the wake of her tweets, the staff at Living Proof Ministries, Moore’s tight-knit organization, “could not hang up the phone for picking it up.” She got messages from women who had read her Bible studies for years but said they’d never read another. Event attendance dropped.

No specific stats offered here. The book, video and event business among Evangelical Christians has been in a decline for a while now. All of the major publishers, including Lifeway, have done some downsizing, couching it in creative terminology to make it sound like they are just making their operation more tech-savvy and efficient. But Zondervan shut down their bookstore chain, and operates strictly by on-line sales, Lifeway shed most of its cumbersome, sprawling office and shipping complex in downtown Nashville in favor of a smaller facility in a trendier neighborhood with easier access and more suited to contracting services out to vendors instead of having the employees do the work. Moore, btw, is one of their top revenue gatherers. The sales are declining because the numbers are declining.
