If you’ve read this site for awhile, you’re likely aware that, despite my interest in films about faith, the “God’s Not Dead” films and I are not on the best terms. I called the first movie dangerous and offensive. And while I thought this year’s “God’s Not Dead 2” was a tad gentler, it still didn’t work for me.
But there was improvement! And maybe, I thought, the series could continue to get better over future films. Alas, despite a post-credit tease that hinted at a third entry, the next step in the “God’s Not Dead” saga is unclear. The film disappointed critics (again) and it grossed only a third of what the first did. But I don’t think writer-director Harold Cronk needs to give up. All he needs is a fresh idea, some new tunes from the Newsboys and an open slot in David A.R. White’s schedule. And there’s no better time to start thinking than today, with the Blu-Ray release of “God’s Not Dead 2.” So, with that in mind, here are some can’t-miss ideas for a third entry in the “God’s Not Dead” franchise that he can feel free to use.
