You see, present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton(played by Spencer from Good Luck Charlie), finds his faith challenged on his very first day of Philosophy class(I remember taking Philosophy and I remember how dogmatic my professor was....it must be a Philosphy thing) by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson(played by Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that … Morefirst day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words "God Is Dead" on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh finds himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that "God Is Dead," he must prove God's existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God's existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? It amazed me as the story progressed and young Josh finds his life shaking to its core....but his passion for God burning out of control. There are several lives that are touched in this movie and I do not want to blow the movie for anyone. I will say....if you are going for an action packed movie....you won't find it here. The movie is a bit slow at times....but you cannot leave this movie and say it did not touch your life in some way. If you get a chance....go see it....take a friend.....take a non-believer....it may make a difference. You will leave knowing in your heart that God's Not Dead.
