God’s Not Dead cover


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 acrossroads, 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.

  9. rosemary fong says:

    Powerful! Would love to share with my chinese friends. Will the dvd have chinese sub-title?

  10. Jo Ann Blinstrub says:

    This is the movie of 2014 that should receive the Oscar. Not the same old worldly killing, swearing, full of sex and brainless behavior and void of message to our youth. I’ve seen it 3 times and will buy it on the release day and continue to watch it over and over. I know I will be Blessed by God each and every time I watch it. I can’t wait for my sons to watch this movie with me. God Bless all who watch and receive his grace.

  11. Victoria Adkins says:

    This movie rips into your Soul, To watch my husband wipe his tears you know this is a heaven sent movie. We can’t wait to purchase on DVD

  12. John Turull says:

    I have four son’s so you no there is a lot of machoism in my home. So when I see my boys crying deep deep tears snot and all, I know it had an impact. I asked one of them why are you crying like this his statement was “I know how much I mess up and God still loves me.” He’s only 12; that says a whole lot. This was an amazing movie.

  13. cherie martin says:

  16. Anita Simon says:

    I thank God that this movie is a teaching
    From our history books…The most
    important teaching that there is in this world,
    Is in The Bible , the thing is it has never been
    taught in public schools….a fact to the wise,
    If you are in different parts of this world, you
    Will be murderd if you say the name God,son
    Of God, Jesus!!!!!!!, Again I thank God I’m
    Living in America,and not Perfect but we
    Can learn more and read and see what
    We believe !!!!!!!!!

  17. Ruby W. says:

    My daughter and I just returned from the movie theatre. We were so happy to have had the opportunity to have viewed this great movie we are encouraging and taking others to see it. My daughter, who is graduating from high school this year, wants us to buy the DVD to ensure all her friends will see it at our house. Not many movies have evoked such emotion from her as this one and I highly recommend it.

  18. Judy says:

    Movie very well portrays the belief of atheist and christian. Excellent
    and would recommend to family and friends. We need more movies like God’s Not Dead. Will buy the dvd for my family.

  19. Geri Mitcell says:

    Most powerful,emotional,and most thought provoking movie I have ever
    seen. The DVD will be a valuable witnessing tool, with a high possibility of creating a much needed revival,especially for the younger crowd.

  20. June B. says:

    Absolutely wonderful movie! So well done. I have already e-mailed ALL my family, friends and others, “God Is NOT Dead”. A Must See. Also, an excellent way to be able to ‘let God, Himself, speak to every heart’. Best Christian movie I have ever seen! I know there will be many more like this to come…..Sooo grateful for this production.

  21. Kristen says:

    This movie was so awesome. I wish it wasn’t limited in theaters this movie should have been shown nation wide. Everyone did a great job in this movie.It was very powerful and you didn’t know what emotion was coming up next. I watched the whole thing without getting up cause I didn’t want to miss a thing.

  22. cindy says:

    One of the best movies ever. I texted everyone I know to tell
    them to go and see it. To bad it was limited release. Can’t wait
    to buy copies of the dvd to send to family and friends.

  23. Richard Slack says:

    I just got back from a local Theatre here in Utah, with my Son, Daughter-in-law, and Grandson ! And, I must say, that hands down, This is one of the Best movies that I have EVER seen !
