GOD'S NOT DEAD
The new drama hit that weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief.
Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words "God Is Dead" as instructed, Josh find himself having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal prompting 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. Can he actually prove the existence of God?
The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.
"God's Not Dead" starts Friday at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 113 minutes. It's rated PG for thematic material, brief violence and an accident scene.
