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

I enjoyed it
19 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My church was playing the movie "God's Not Dead" on a Sunday night (tonight). I was going to invite some non-Christian friends to join me. Before I did so, I thought I'd better check out the movie online first. After reading the reviews on IMDb, and how negative they were, I decided not to invite my friends, but to go see the movie myself. Having just seen the movie, I am sorry I did not invite my friends along. The movie was fine, and worthwhile. In fact, I enjoyed it. It's interesting to me how many reviewers proclaiming themselves to be "Christians" say they were "offended" by this movie. It's a Christian movie written and directed by Christians addressing some of today's contemporary attitudes about God and Christianity...and it's pro-Christian. And the fact it's "pro-Christian" and biased as such surprises people??? Really? Why can't some Christians make a pro-Christian movie that un-ashamedly promotes the idea of Christianity? One reviewer called it "propaganda". Goodness! Likely 95% of what Hollywood produces is "propaganda" promoting a secular perspective and agenda. The content and perspective of these movies are often extremely negative, cynical and depressing in nature. One doesn't get "offended" by that for some reason. But Christians producing a Christian movie promoting the idea of God and Christianity is offensive. Wow! The often horrible, meaningless crap we're fed by the entertainment industry we enjoy and consume without offense. Why, then, does a positive, encouraging movie like "God's Not Dead" evoke such a reaction and backlash? For me, it was a good piece of entertainment. I felt encouraged by it. And it addressed some perspectives and challenges Christians, and non-Christians, face in life. I wasn't expecting an academy award winning movie, nor a deeply intellectual exploration of Christian apologetics countered by a balanced and equally effective anti-God perspective that would leave the viewer wondering what they should believe. I was expecting to be encouraged and entertained as a Christian. I was.
