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

God's not dead, but he is disappointed
I am a Christian and this is one of my least favorite movies of all time. The type of Christians who like this movie are mostly mindless consumers who don't question authority or even their own beliefs. This movie is out right Christian propaganda. By making every non Christian in this movie a terrible person, they attempt to keep from drawing any of your own conclusions about religion. There is absolutely nothing subtle about this movie. Real life Chrstianity is complicated and filled with many tough questions. Instead of addressing these questions, God's Not Dead terminates the narrative entirely by making religion as simple as 'Christian- good, Not Christian- evil'.
If this was a movie that simply panders to the Christian audience then maybe it could be forgivable. But on top of that, the acting is awful, cinematography is bland, and the writing sounds like an alien trying to guess what real people talk like.
God's Not Dead may think they are helping Christianity, but their obvious bias towards Christianity only turns people away from religion.
