“God’s Not Dead” is an engaging film about a college student who has signed up for a philosophy class in which the professor insists all students agree in writing that “God is dead.” When student Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper) refuses to make such a statement, Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo) tells Josh that he must successfully prove the case for theism or fail the class. Josh takes on the challenge and presents arguments in class over a number of days. Shane Harper stated that the goal of the film was to inspire Christians to have the mind and heart that prepares them to take action and have the kind of conversations that were presented in the film. For this reviewer, the goal was met–and with flying colors. This clean, uplifting film holds the viewer’s attention throughout the 113-minute running time. The film is entertaining, enjoyable to watch, and not lacking in drama. You will laugh, and you will cry. There are a number of storylines in this film that are interrelated. I look forward to seeing this film again. Some atheistic critics of the film thought the professor’s actions were unrealistic. However, this character was based on real legal cases, which were listed in the credits at the end of the picture. Some resources to help Christians defend their faith are at the movie’s official website. Additionally, I highly recommend Lee Strobel’s books, “The Case for a Creator” and “The Case for Christ” at bookstores.
