The first movie has its romances intertwined with the real message, and is well done. It follows a college freshman who enrolls in a philosophy class. Herein lies the core of the message. The professor requires the students to write God is dead on the opening day of classes, and one student refuses. He also refuses to drop the class, but instead matches wits with the professor in logical discourse, his position is God is not dead.
The arguments continue throughout the movie, with the professor quoting authoritative sources. The student soon is forced to do research to counter the professor’s position logically.
The movie handles the debate well, and the sources used often are atheists, whose writings are quoted by the both the professor and the student in a persuasive manner. After each discourse it is obvious each will seek additional material to continue the ongoing debate. There is an entire semester over which the logical arguments span.
There are two clergymen, but their denomination is never revealed. While there is a church, the arguments for the existence of God should be appealing to all, since there is no focus on Jesus. The focus is simply on God.
The depths of the arguments is what I appreciated most, but even though it is a deep topic the arguments are easily understood by all.
