American Family Association Says ‘God’s Not Dead’ Film Great for Families, Church Groups
American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net)
has a family-friendly suggestion for all members of the household this
weekend—and an entertainment idea for conversation-creating date nights and
church small groups.
The major motion picture “God’s Not Dead,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Shane
Harper and Dean Cain, follows the story of college freshman and devout
Christian Josh Wheaton, who finds his faith challenged by his philosophy
professor then goes on a mission to prove his professor wrong—to prove that God
is not dead.
“God’s Not Dead” opens in 600 theaters nationwide today, and churches around
the country are jumping at the opportunity to help lead their congregations to
wholesome, Christian entertainment by partnering with theaters in their
“When the film industry makes the effort to produce a thoughtful and
intelligent Christian movie, as it has done with ‘God’s Not Dead,’ we as a
community should support that endeavor,” said Tim Wildmon, AFA President.
“‘God’s Not Dead’ is a wonderful film for the entire family and can serve as a
thought-provoking lesson for small groups, Bible studies and Sunday School
classes. Personally, I am looking forward to gathering with some friends and
family soon, along with popcorn of course, to take in ‘God’s Not Dead,’ because
indeed He, as the song says, is surely alive!”
The theme song for the film is “God’s Not Dead” by the popular Christian
band The Newsboys, who also make an appearance in the film. “Duck Dynasty’s”
Willie and Korie Robertson also make a cameo.
