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. Radisson assigns him a daunting
task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s
existence over the course of the semester. 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?
