About the Author

Alan Noble (PhD, Baylor University) is assistant professor of English at Oklahoma Baptist University and cofounder and editor in chief of Christ and Pop Culture. He has written for The Atlantic, Vox, BuzzFeed, The Gospel Coalition, Christianity Today, and First Things.


In an age of distraction and the 'buffered self, ' perhaps this is more a time for preparing the soil than for reaping. In any case, Alan Noble displays the disruptive resources of Christ's kingdom that are at hand. I will be recommending this book far and wide!

--Michael Horton, professor of theology and apologetics at Westminster Seminary California, cohost on White Horse Inn

Disruptive Witness is a timely, relevant work of cultural diagnosis, thought-provoking even if you don't agree with all of Noble's prescriptions.

--Influence Magazine, June 28, 2018

As a theologian of culture, Noble reminds us that Christian discipleship entails the habitual renewing of our minds, which is dependent on the power and work of the Holy Spirit. Even without the myriad distractions available to us, that work will never be easy or quick. It requires perseverance, patience, and time. With Disruptive Witness, Noble has plowed a stony field beautifully, allusively, and I am eager to see what harvest will emerge from the seeds.

--Laura M. Fabrycky, Fathom Magazine, July 17, 2018

This accessible, timely book provides concrete strategies for individuals and churches desiring a robust 'disruptive' Christian witness in a distracted, secular age.
