God's Not Dead

God's Not Dead movie.

Suppose that, on your first day of college, an atheist professor required you to sign a declaration that "God is dead" or face a failing grade.

That's the dilemma faced by students in "God's Not Dead," a Pure Flix production that debuts in theaters March 21. The faith-based film focuses on combating skepticism and atheism through equipping viewers with scientific evidence and reasoned arguments for God's existence.

The movie features appearances by "Duck Dynasty's" Willie and Korie Robertson, members of the White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La., along with a concert appearance by the Newsboys, whose 2011 rock anthem shares the movie's title.

At fictitious Hadleigh University, Dr. Radisson (Kevin Sorbo, best known for his TV stint as "Hercules") gives the dreaded mandate to his philosophy class. Every student takes the pledge that "God is dead" - except freshman Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper of the Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie"). 

After prayerful consideration and conflicting guidance from his personal network, Wheaton refuses to comply. His decision catapults the inexperienced college student into a series of one-on-one, Lincoln-Douglas style debates against tenured professor Radisson over God's existence.
