Movie Info

Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words "God Is Dead" on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that "God Is Dead," he must prove God's existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God's existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn't it just be easier just to write "God Is Dead" and put the whole incident behind him? GOD'S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions. --(C) Official Site

Audience Reviews for God's Not Dead

    Would have been an interesting debate if it wasn't so one-sided.

    One of the most overstuffed and shallow screenplays in cinema history is complimented with some terrible visuals and some horribly one-sided messages that will be offensive not only to minorities, but also potentially Christians. God may not be dead, but with this movie, it sure seems like good cinema is.

    Do casting directors have to go to special agencies to assemble a cast so bereft of talent? This film is probably best appreciated by those who have not been to college and have no need for intellectual conversations with others.

    I was advised by my Christian friends I had to see this movie and would help me with my misdirected faith, and they were wrong. Manipulative and convoluted with sub-par acting and it played as a info-mercial for Duck Dynasty and the Newsboys Christian band. Kevin Sorbo and Dean Cain should lose their sag card for the horrible performances they give and Kathie Lee Gifford's daughter is horrible. No inspiration for me! 07-12-2015
