“God’s Not Dead” (PG)—College freshman and devout Christian Josh Wheaton has his faith challenged on his first day of philosophy class by the dogmatic Professor Radisson. 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, Josh finds 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: to prove God’s existence and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class.
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?
The movie stars Kevin Sorbo, Shane Harper and Willie Robertson.
Running time—113 minutes.
