Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” testified that the forthcoming film “God’s Not Dead,” which tells the story of a college student who accepts his professor’s challenge to provide a defense for the existence of God and the Christian faith, inspired him and strengthened his own faith.

“I was very impressed with how they made the movie,” Robertson told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday. “I would definitely say my own faith was strengthened – I was glad to be on the side of the kid defending his faith.”

Robertson and his wife Korie play themselves in the film, movie stars interviewed about their faith in God by a reporter also covering the outspoken student’s debate with his professor. Since the movie was filmed in separate takes, the actor told CP he had no idea how the story all fit together until he saw the entire film recently. “I thought it was well written and it came together,” Robertson said. “It inspired me.”

“I think the movie was certainly made as a teaching tool to definitely bring people to a belief in God,” Robertson told CP.

In contrast to other explicitly Christian films, however, this movie has a true blockbuster feel, the actor said.

“I’ve seen some Christian movies where the acting’s not as good or the story’s not as good, or it’s just a lower budget film,” Robertson admitted. This film, however, “really raised the bar with these faith-based movies.”
