Movie Info

A church destroyed. A congregation silenced. A relationship shattered. Yet even in life's darkest valleys, a small flame can light the way toward healing and hope. After a deadly fire rips through St. James Church, Hadleigh University leaders use the tragedy to push the congregation off campus, forcing the church to defend its rights and bringing together estranged brothers for a reunion that opens old wounds and forces them to address the issues that pulled them apart. In theaters nationwide March 30, 2018, GOD'S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is a powerful reminder that in all circumstances, we are called to be a light for Jesus to a world in desperate need of hope.

Critic Reviews for God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8)

God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness isn't just the conclusion of the most successful film trilogy made for the evangelical market, it's the first time a Facebook argument has metastasized into a movie.

March 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It features all of the familiar elements from the two previous films: a persecution-complex, an 'us vs. them' attitude, and visions of the brave faithful going up against a hostile secular society.

March 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The third chapter in the conservative Evangelical franchise known for its flabbergasting box office success might have learned some Christian humility. OK, not much humility. But on this map's legend, an inch equals a mile.

A Light In Darkness isn't as offensive as the first film-it lacks the requisite misogyny and Islamophobia, and does a better job of looking like it's almost a real movie-but it's not far behind, an emblematic film for the foul moment.

Top Critic

Less strident than the two surprise hits that preceded it, but it still tells a programmatic story, rooted in presumptions.

These movies are fundamentalist propaganda aimed at people who are convinced their religion is under attack in this country just because it doesn't exempt them from the Constitution.

Audience Reviews for God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

Perhaps the best of the series, God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness is a religious drama that tackles provocative and controversial social issues. When a university uses an arson attack on a historic church as an excuse to remove it from the campus they set off a legal battle about religious liberty that ignites the passions of the community. Unlike the other two films in the series (which have an ensemble style), the plot focuses on one central story. Yet it still manages to address many of the issues that the Church and Christians are dealing with in an increasingly hostile culture. Also, David A.R. White proves to be a pretty good actor and capable of being the lead; which is a considerable step-up from his supporting roles in the previous films. God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness is a nice capstone on the trilogy that's spiritually moving and compelling.
