Dr. James KA Smith



What has your spiritual journey been like?

A conversation with Dr. James KA Smith

Episode Description:

Dr. James KA Smith is a philosophy professor at Calvin College, and a speaker on college campuses across the country. He came to The Ohio State University to speak on the topic of one of his books called You Are What You Love. As you might expect as a philosopher, Dr. Smith is a deep thinker. What you might not expect is that he has so much to say that is very practical. Join us in our conversation with Dr. Smith as we explore his spiritual journey and his experience of doubt even after becoming a Christian.
