How far would you go to defend your belief in God? That’s the question at the forefront of the March 21st release of God’s Not Dead, a movie about an embattled Christian student, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), who faces a failing grade from his philosophy professor, Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo).
If Josh is not able to present well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester establishing God’s existence, Josh’s lofty academic goals could be hindered. Endorsed by groups like American Family Association and Alliance Defending Freedom and well-respected individuals like Pastor John Hagee as well as professional athletes, authors, and many others, this is a film that should take moviegoers on a ride of conviction, leaving them to ask the same question to themselves.
