A thought-provoking battle between atheist science and the acceptance of God. Philosophy teacher, Jeffrey Radisson tries to persuade his class to sign a declaration that God is dead and never existed in order to pass their course. However, one evangelical Christian student, Josh Wheaton cannot bring himself to do such a thing, even if it effects his education.

Jeffrey is a very intense character who is clearly highly intelligent and backs up his fight with reams of philosophical evidence that God should not exist, bullying his class into believing his views. Josh rises to the challenge proving otherwise, or at least gives the rest of the class the opportunity to understand and make the decision for themselves.

We are all given a choice to decide if we believe or don’t believe, and yes, it can feel like one of the hardest decisions of your life. Especially when we have to deal with death, war and famine, or acts of pure evil. It can be hard to understand, and to come to terms with how and where God fits in to all of this.

'Gods not dead' does a superb job at fighting the case of Gods existence and does it in a very theological way to help us understand why life is the way it is. The film has come under scrutiny from critics, suggesting that its very focused on the oppressed Christian and all the non-Christian characters within the film are bad and their views are wrong, which I can see their point. However, there will be many circumstances in life where these types of scenarios do exist and the whole point of the film is to give Christians and others the confidence to believe.

"Atheists say that no one can
prove the existence of God and
they're right, but I say no one
can disprove that God exists."
