Freshman university student Josh Wheaton attends a philosophy class, where Professor Radisson requires all students to submit a signed statement staying "God is dead" and never existed. When Josh refuses because of his own beliefs, the professor challenges him to defend his position, which leads to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury.Written by
At the end of the movie, before the credits, a list appears onscreen of 37 real-life court cases by Christian students suing colleges because they feel that administrators are not allowing them to practice their faith. None of the cases parallel the film, but many involve Christians expressing unpopular viewpoints about controversial issues. See more »
When everybody stands up to say, "God's not dead," there is only one student that doesn't stand up. During filming the actor got stuck in the seat and wasn't able to leave the seat. See more »
I could drop the class, run away, pretend like it never happened, which is what my girlfriend wants. I could sign the paper saying something I don't believe. Or I commit academic suicide in front of a live audience by trying to prove that God exists.

I find it ironic that this is a Christian movie, purportedly filled with Christian morals - honestly, you would think, being one of them - and yet this film manages to be completely dishonest in nearly everything that it does.
I am a Christian, and this movie offended me just as much as I am sure it offended atheists. It is completely dishonest to portray atheists as terrible, villain-esqe people who can do no good because they don't know Jesus.
The bottom line is this movie was made for a Christian audience which is only interested in patting each other on the back that they're "the good guys" in God's eyes. It's laughable, and downright depressing (as a Christian), that other Christians actually think this movie might be some form of evangelism for non-Christians.
