Storyline

Radisson finds the topic of religion painful because his Christian mother died when he was 12, though he had prayed and begged God to spare her life. This may be what led him to study philosophy so in-depth that he ultimately became a philosophy professor, but his desire to now avoid the topic of religion does not mesh well with his career as a philosophy professor. His anger at God has him requesting his students quote Friedrich Nietzsche and, in exchange, he promises to allow them to skip the chapter on religion. This is not the only clue the movie makers give that they have read atheist material extensively. Radisson tells Josh that if he won't reach a consensus with the class, he must prove God is not dead. Radisson had already explained this was a metaphor and, taken in the context of Nietzsche's point, Josh does an excellent job of proving this. Radisson promises Josh that he will keep his comments to a minimum (Radisson won't debate Josh), though Josh begins his argument ... Written by rdnyscott

Trivia

The film's title comes from a book of the same name by Dr. Rice Broocks, which focuses on the subject of apologetics (Greek "apologia" for an intellectual defense). Broocks is credited with having provided apologetics research on the film as well. The song performed by the Newsboys was actually written by Daniel Bashta and originally titled "Like A Lion".

Goofs

When the pastor is trying to start the car, it will not run. We hear the starter spinning the engine, but it does not start. He comments it may be the battery or the starter. That is impossible since if the battery were low or dead the starter would not have the electrical power to turn over the engine, and if the starter were bad it would not turn over the engine.

Mark: Love is the most overused word in the English language. It's what we say when we want something, when we need something.

Propaganda at its finest.
5 July 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

You know when a movie made by Christians is about religion, it's going to demonize secularism. It makes out that Morality is entirely exclusive to Christianity and that without God, there is no point in being moral, which is just ridiculous. It makes every non-Christian look either evil or stupid, which is just insulting. It is just propaganda, no way around it, it's trying to make Christianity look perfect when it isn't and it's trying to make secularism and any other religion look evil and immoral. It's almost like this movie was made Christians who knew absolutely nothing about their own faith and of other beliefs. It's a new low for cinema, it's upsetting to think that this movie was allowed to be made.
