Idiotic.
Verified purchase
This nasty have been an ok Christian movie if they hadn't have made all the non believers nasty and mean caricatures. From the emotionally abusive professor to the Muslim father slapping his daughter around for believing in Jesus this movie demonises non Christians in a way that is very Un-Christian. Some people are good hearted, some are not, the reasons are complex and there is certainly no neat line down the middle with Christians on the good side. Nasty.

A wilful misrepresentation of good university education, atheism and humanism - an embarrassment
Verified purchase
The headline wrtten above says it all. Academinc lecturers are portrayed as power-crazed jackasses, and - unsurprisingly - Christians are portaryed as victims: a trope which they love to play out, especailly since it mirrors the Christ story. But, I actually enjoyed watching the film with my friends. We howled with laughter as one blantant falsehood about lecturing and atheism and humanism followed another falsehood, and another, and another. Christian apoligists: please be honest. Don't cherry-pick, misquote, set up straw-man arguments, or downright lie because there's some greater truth which will prevail. Just go on believing what you will, and leave the rest of us alone.

Great film for Christians and non-Christians alike
Verified purchase
A great film for Christians and non-Christians alike. The main character ends up being challenged to deny his faith by an angry athiest lecturer (played by the excellen Kevin Sorbo) to accept that God doesn't exist (or as lecturer Kevin Sorbo tried to force his class to agree - God Is Dead). He then has to prove and present an argument to his class for why God Isn't Dead which is delivered brilliantly and sites modern science and philosophical thinkers. The film also contains several other characters who each have their own storyline and all of whom are going through their own personal battles which will lead them to finding their way to faith.

A really enjoyable, entertaining and thought-provoking watch which I recommend to both Christians and non-Christians alike.

An excellent and easy introduction to apologetics
Verified purchase
Too often Christian films lack substance and are poorly made. Not so with this title that shows you can argue for the existence of God (or at least oppose the non existence) using well thought out and structured argument.

All the small side stories fit nicely in too and help to show that there is a cost to following God and that can sometimes be high but in the end it is worth it.

This film would fit nicely into an introduction to the topic and could be followed by further detailed discussion covering points that were only just touched on in the film. Cover the showing in prayer. Maybe even see people come to faith in Christ as a result or at least bring them closer to relationship with Him.

Rubbish
Verified purchase
Rubbish really is the only word for this film.
As if a professor would be say his whole class passes almost a third of their course if they write God is dead on a sheet of paper and then telling them to read 3 books before their next class. Sure you get 30% of your pass mark for writing three words but you’re also expected to read 3 books within a day or two?
I really hope the US education system is better than that. Not that I believe for a moment anyone would get away with asking students to do such a thing or denying them freedom of religious belief in a public university.
Why the student couldn’t just write god is dead and say he is writing it about Zeus or some other god I have no idea.

As soon as the student starts presenting his case you know things aren’t going to get any better when he leads with things like you may not be able to prove god exists but you can’t disprove it. As if it’s not the job of the person making the assertion to prove it.
He immediately follows this with the Big Bang being an explosion and 98% of the matter in the universe being formed in the first 3 minutes. Here was me thinking it took thousands of years before electrons combined with nuclei but I guess it depends what you mean by matter and it was the explosion part that troubled me.

god is dead
Verified purchase
At first it was a understanding film ..until the near end then I was disgusted . You should be able to make ur own mind up .. Because of this film I could never believe in god!! It totally went out of its way to say if u do not believe u will die for your sins .. My view is not to watch this its or allow your children too ..
Instead of me at one time believing u had a right to believe in what u wish too " now I can say because of this film I will never believe in g0d not ever

What would you do if you enrolled on a course and found your beliefs were tested? This is what happens to Josh Wheaton when he begins Professor Radisson's philosophy course. The professor, a staunch atheist, requires his students to sign a declaration that God is dead and doesn't belong in the classroom.
Christian believer, Josh is unable to sign the form and is given the task to convince the other students that there is a case for God.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. There were a cast of strong characters with intense emotions that kept this pacey plot going. It kept me interested and there were some brilliant arguments presented for the case for God.
Why have I only given it 4 stars instead of 5? Well although it was a very good film, I have also watched the second one and preferred this. The story line is good and if you are questioning your faith you will enjoy some of the arguments presented.
Worth watching!

Very watchable but
Verified purchase
A very watchable film but with some twee moments and not really how I feel and see my God to be which is both personal as well as 'without beginning or end'. Plus .... spoilers here ....I thought it sounded a duff note when the Prof was hit by a car and died. That made it come across (to me) as a vengeful God saying I'm not dead but you are, when my God is a forgiving, loving God.

And, while my belief has been unshakeable since almost the year dot, I would most likely tell a preacher type where to go if he started with that Elmer Gantry saving soul stuff as my life force wass ebbing away. Mark you, that could be because I still prefer Tridentine Catholicism for mystical reasons.

Some good bits, and it's been a while since I saw Kevin Sorbo in anything. (I already knew he was a professed Christian.) If anything, I thought he was holding back for the sake of the younger actors.
