Is It Any Good?
Whereas faith-based families are likely to enjoy the movie and its message, others are likely to find it as heavy-handed propaganda. God's Not Dead: We the People is definitely a movie that will be appreciated by those who already believe that the Christian faith is under attack by opportunistic politicians, "politically correct" bureaucrats, and so many others.
Like so much about life, culture, education, politics, media, and entertainment these days, this is divisive fare that will inspire and uplift some and will inspire disdain, mockery, or simple indifference in others. It's one of many viewpoints out there on this controversial topic.
