What do you believe?
When an atheist Philosophy professor (played by Kevin Sorbo) plans to forego “dusty arguments” in his class, he insists the new students declare that “God is Dead.” Unable to do this, Josh (played by Shane Harper) is challenged to defend his faith and prove to the class that “God’s Not Dead”. Against all odds, Josh stands up for his faith and takes on the challenge.
(Also starring Dean Cain ("Superman") and David A.R. White and with special appearance of the Newsboys and Willie and Korie Robertson)
To watch a preview see www.pureflix.comThis is a powerful film. Kevin Sorbo turns in a brilliant performance as a Philosophy professor who starts his new class by insisting that his students sign a paper stating "God is dead". One student, named Josh, refuses to do so and Professor Jeffery (Sorbo) tells him he must debate the topic that God is dead and give convincing evidence that he is not. Josh accepts the challenge and the viewer later learns why Professor Jeffery has been bitter at God for a long time. It should be noted that the professor's girlfriend is a Christian but he just can't seem to outrun God.
"Gods not dead - he's living on the inside and roaring like a lion." Words from the song sung by the Newsboys.
"God is NOT Dead... is a must. An Incredible, believable plot that causes one to question agnosticism"
Other plots involve a man named Mark (Dean Cain) who is self absorbed and doesn't care when he learns his girlfriend has cancer. He ignores his elderly mother too who has dementia and is in a nursing home. This compelling movie features the Newsboys who minister to the woman with cancer and a providential moment when Pastor Dave (David A.R. White) has an opportunity to minister to a certain college professor. In addition, a woman lives for Jesus despite the fact her father belongs to another religion and will reject her if she doesn't reject Christ. We are happy to award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. This movie is a powerful tool to remind every viewer: God is certainly not dead! The Dove Foundation
