God's Not Dead

Now Playing Synopsis: A devoutly religious college freshman must debate the existence of God with his skeptical philosophy professor in order to earn a passing grade in this faith-based comedy-drama featuring Kevin Sorbo and David A.R. White. Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper) is a Christian who never thought his faith would get in the way of his higher education. As a result, he is deeply shaken when, on the first day of his Philosophy class, Professor Radisson (Sorbo) begins the semester by demanding that each of his students deny the existence of God in order to earn a passing grade. Although Josh tries his best to graciously refuse, Professor Radisson informs him that in order to continue in the class, the disagreeable student must make an air-tight argument for the defense. Not only that, but the semester will culminate in a debate between teacher and student on the subject. Should the class still remain unconvinced of God's existence, Josh will fail, sending his entire academic future up in flames. Duck Dynasty's Willie and Korie Robertson have cameos. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Shane Harper, Kevin Sorbo, David A.R.

Persecuted

Now Playing Synopsis: A popular evangelist races to clear his name after being framed for murder by a U.S. senator in this topical thriller from writer/director Daniel Lusko (Riptide, Never Surrender). The winds of religious reform are blowing through the United States, but influential preacher John Luther (James Remar) is the one man who stands in the way of progress. As a result, Lusko incurs the wrath of a sinister U.S. senator, who turns the pastor into a media pariah by kidnapping him and implicating him in the murder of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, Luther plots to expose those who are exploiting the innocent girl's death for profit, and learns that America's Christian community will soon face mass persecution. Dean Stockwell and Bruce Davidson co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: James Remar, Fred Dalton Thompson, Gretchen Carlson, Dean Stockwell, Bruce Davison Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
