The Evidence Behind the Hit Movie
The goal of Gods Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty is straightforward: to help readers develop a faith that is real and credibleand strong enough to help others find faith in God. To that end, Rice Broocks outlines a roadmap that guides seekers to acknowledge the most basic truths of Christianity:
- There is overwhelming and exciting evidence for Gods existence
- The God who exists is indeed the God of the Bible
- God has revealed his nature through his Son, Jesus Christ
As shown during the movie, this is the original book on which the main character bases much of his debate points with the atheistic professor. Persuasive arguments crafted with tools borrowed from logic, science, and philosophy, as well as scripture, solidify the faith of the Christian reader and provide starting points for discussions with skeptics. With clear, easy-to-follow explanations of key concepts and controversies, Gods Not Dead is apologetics for the twenty-first century, presented in laymans terms. Readers will be empowered not only to talk about their own faith with confidence but to lead others to a relationship with Jesus.
Rice Broocks is the cofounder of the Every Nation family of churches, with more than one thousand churches in more than 73 nations. The senior minister of Bethel World Outreach Church, Nashville, Tennessee, Rice is also the author of several books, including Man, Myth, Messiah, Gods Not Dead, The Purple Book, and Every Nation in Our Generation. A graduate of Mississippi State University, Rice has a masters degree from Reformed Theological Seminary and a doctorate of missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary.

UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5God Is Definitely Alive!June 21, 2013UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4You and I know that God is not dead but how can we convince others of this fact? This book is a helpful apologetics tool and is pretty easy to read & understand (not too technical or heavy). The author presents 9 key concepts to show that God exists and to help readers answer questions received from unbelievers/ atheists/skeptics. Questions like "Why are we here?" "Why doesn't God remove evil from the world?" and "Who designed the Designer?" and more. Indeed, there's overwhelming evidence for the existence of God...from the incredible fine-tuning of the universe and the intricacies and complexity of life to the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the witness of Scripture. Sadly, regardless of the abundance of evidence pointing to God, some people are blind or stubborn (refuse to go where the evidence leads to God); they're willing to embrace any alternative...anything (no matter how absurd) but God. Scientifically, historically, archaeologically, philosophically, and logically, the evidence for God is clearly seen and undeniable!
I enjoyed reading this informative book and kept underlining as I read. Each chapter starts with two interesting quotes and ends with a concise summary. I found God's Not Dead useful and a great complement to what I learned from the Truth Project. I highly recommend this book for any seekers (you may find answers to your doubts), any believers (you will be able to use what you learn in the book to confidently articulate your faith to unbelievers), and any skeptics (you want truth? I hope you can handle the truth :)).

Some will debate this question. In this book, you will read about the debates and offered evidence to the fact that God is alive and well. The author gives a close look at the evidence for God's existence, at nine key proofs in his book that present a solid foundation for believers. Any of these proofs is enough.
The author quotes from both sides of the debate. He quotes from difference atheists and from the scientific community. Giving both sides of the debates gives you the information you need to understand that God is not dead and wants you to believe in Him and follow in his word.
Quoting from the book jacket: "God's Not Dead guides seekers and reminds believers that real faith is not blind --- it is based on evidence. "

We live in an age filled with skepticism. Sadly, many believers ignore the need to head the call of Scripture to "always be ready to give an answer for reason for hope that is in you." Skeptics in our day are continually seeking to wage new and increased attacks on the faith. As great as works like Mere Christianity are, they alone do not help us deal with the newest assaults on faith in Christ. In God's Not Dead, author Rice Broocks addresses the current attacks on religion waged by people like Richard Dawkins. Broocks establishes evidence for God from the realms of philosophy, science, history, and theology. The does a wonderful job of addressing tougher issues such as the dilemma of good and evil, as well as addressing the idea that religion has done more harm than good throughout history.
It can be easy for an average person like me to shy away from deep and heavy apologetics books. I read plenty of them in college and seminary and finished them with more of a headache than a confidence to handle questions and objections. God's Not Dead is not a dead apologetics book! It does a wonderful job of addressing the issues in a way that any reader can follow and comprehend with confidence. For anyone serious about being ready to defend the faith against the latest swarms of attacks, I would highly recommend this book. But I would also recommend this book for any believer to help establish their own faith as one that is based on evidence and not just a blind leap of faith.
