Godís Not Dead, the movie
By Janey DeMeo
Special to ASSIST News Service
VISTA, CA (ANS) -- When a college philosophy professor mandates that his students each sign a paper stating, ďGod is dead,Ē what is a Christian freshman to do? Godís Not Dead (produced by Pureflix) tells the story of how God uses one young manís effort to defend His Christian faith before his entire Philosophy class.
In spite of a coy demeanor, Josh relentlessly accepts his professorís daunting and derisive invitation to prove to the entire class that God is not dead.
Josh Wheaton plays the part of apologist and inadvertently finds himself being used by God not only to confront the biased claims of an arrogant college professor but also as a voice of reason to fellow students from different countries and cultures who would hear the Gospel presented in a well-researched and intelligent manner.
The powerful message in Godís Not Dead is further enriched by special appearances by the Newsboys and ďDuck DynastyísĒ Willie and Korie Robertson add to the relevant message as well as the pure entertainment of Godís Not Dead.
On the down side, some of the actingóor maybe the problem is the lines in the screenplay rather than the actingó is overstated. In fact, a few scenarios seem redundant and silly (such as the pastorís car not starting and then the rental cars doing the same thing). Joshís girlfriend, for example, is just too bossy to be believable. Still, the movieís well worth seeing. And well worth bringing people to, especially if they have questions about God.
