Have you heard? An exciting new Christian film is releasing in theaters later this month. God's Not Dead, a Pure Flix Entertainment production, is releasing March 21st in theaters around the country. The full synopsis reads:
"Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? God's Not Dead weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.
God's Not Dead features a talented cast of actors including Kevin Sorbo, Shane Harper, David A.R. White, and Dean Cain, with special appearances by Christian super-band Newsboys and “Duck Dynasty’s” Willie and Korie Robertson.
To prepare for this movie's release, they've asked all their supporters to participate in a "21 days of prayer" event starting March 1st and leading up to the movie's release on the 21st. It's never too late to start, though, as you can still download this prayer guide here. This would definitely be a great opportunity to support and encourage the people working on reaching out to others through this film.
