Dr James K. A. Smith, Professor of Philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI offers to believers a more accurate story of secularism today and imagines for believers how remembering the eternal and invisible parts of the story of the Gospel can change our approach to mission when secular people are saying, “I don’t believe in God but I miss him.”
