It's the debate of the ages; this time, held in a seemingly insignificant venue, but the outcome, as always, will be life-changing. A Christian college freshman, Josh Wheaton, and his atheist philosophy professor hold court on the existence of God. To pass the course, Josh must prove to the class that God is alive and well. This dare could cost him his relationships, his career, even his future, but Josh stands up for his faith and takes on the challenge.

This is a good movie. Many things to describe about it that could go on and on.

This was a decent film, with mostly great parts and few not-so-great parts.
I just wanted to say a few things…
The acting was good throughout.
This movie was a bit cheesy, not not too much.
God CAN start cars, heal illnesses, resurrect people, or ANYTHING else that you might think of! He is GOD, for the love of cheese!
The evangelizing stuff at the end was a bit much.
If you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, your life will not be perfect. But it will be better, because you will know that God loves you and will always love you, and that every bad situation always works out for your benefit. Maybe perfection-after-conversion was a little bit implicated in this film, but not very much.
I would say that the plot was entertaining, and the message was quite clear and correct—God is NOT dead.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was well made and uplifting.

To start, I found this movie both intense and thought-provoking. Some scenes dragged, but other parts made up for them. The accident scene, and how the pastor was there, was really powerful. One thing I disliked was the multiple storylines; not all of them received enough development or closure to be interesting. Finally, I understand that you may strongly dislike this movie, (especially if you disagree with the faith presented therein) but still, at least be willing to consider a different viewpoint.

Interesting idea for the movie! Great characters! For most part, the drama and acting was good... until it got closer to the end! It got exceedingly preachy, using this movie as an Evangelistic tool for the non-Christians! Using the real couple from the Duck Dynasty was really cheesy and not very wise! This reality show characters are known for their extreme ideas! Also, the idea that God can start the car, although plausible for the Christian crowd, was ludicrous, bearing in mind that this Film was meant to be realistic!
The movie was based on some of the true events where the Christian students were persecuted on the University campuses, were not allowed free expression, experienced quite a bit of intolerance, and, possibly, the loss of the degrees! A valid subject that definitely needs to be addressed! My problem is over-the-top evangelistic bombardment towards the end! So unnecessary and yet, seemed to be required from the Christian movie industry by the Christians themselves! Subtlety would have been Much more effective and more praiseworthy! It tells me that the Christian evangelical people seem to be out-of-touch with the people that are not in their circle! Even the acting gets very cheesy, contrived and poor at this point!
My other problem is the presentation of this idea that if one accepted Jesus as one's Saviour and Lord, then your life will be more smooth and perfect! This only encourages the hypocrisy! I don't think that it is purposeful, but it's definitely the effect! This Utopian premise is not even Biblical!

In general, this is a good drama, provocative on the two subjects! If you can ignore the 2nd part's evangelism, and suspend some of your judgement, you just might enjoy it..! I would have given this movie more stars, but, alas, I could not!

Really good and based on several real life cases. A very 'satisfying' watch.

Finished watching this movie and have to give it rave reviews as it is swirling around in my mind! A wonderfully complex film following several characters in a flowing and easy to follow manner. It was comprehensive in its message and arguments on the existence of God and some trials that we may endure in this life. If you have a 13+ year-old youth or a child in university or struggle with faith, then this is for you. This should really be screened in schools.

Josh quietly says, "How can you hate someone, if they don't exist?"
