Introduction

Title: God’s Not Dead

Studio: Pure Flix Entertainment

Publication Date: March 21, 2014

Format: Movie

Length: 113 Minutes

OVERVIEW

A collage freshman is taking a philosophy class and is asked to admit that God is dead. This young man happens to be a Christian and refuses to say that God is dead. In return the professor, as a mocking joke, asks him to prove God is alive. Although everyone was telling the freshman man to keep quiet and let it go he refused to admit God is dead.  The boy gives a few lectures to the class and digs deeper into the professor’s life. Many other stories of Christians are also taking place at the same time.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

4 out of 5 stars

Suggested Audience

Teenagers or adults

Christian Impact

This movie shows what it means to stand up for Christ and how it can impact others. Everyone leads different lives but we all have purpose and meaning.

The story is very beautiful and impacting but also unlikely. I do not think many professors would allow a student to contradict their lesson for a week. Also a professor would never break down in front of the class and admit that he hates God because his mother died. The story is definitely fiction but the point does get across. At the end of the movie I did see Gods overwhelming power and I did feel more on fire for Christ. It is a good family friendly movie that I would definitely recommend.
