I love getting the scoop on upcoming movies and I was especially excited to find out that, “God’s Not Dead 2: He’s Surely Alive,” is being released in theaters Easter Weekend 2016! If you saw its prequel than you already know why you’ll want to catch this in theaters. In today’s cultural climate this movie about faith and what it means to stand in your faith is right on time!
The film takes audiences back to Hope Springs, Arkansas to Martin Luther King Jr. High School. Grace Wesley a beloved history teacher played by Melissa Joan Hart shares her love of teaching, her love of life, and her love of people which all are manifested through her love for Christ. So when Brooke a student mourning over the loss of her brother, finds Grace at a coffee shop, their conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing with Brooke the hope she finds in Christ. However, conflict arises when Brooke asks an honest question about Jesus during a lesson Grace is teaching about Dr. King and Gandhi. Not everyone is happy with Grace’s answer which eventually leads her into trouble with the principal (Robin Givens) and superintendent. Once they team up with an attorney who has no love for God, Grace faces an epic court case. She teams up with a sympathetic and charismatic defense lawyer (Jessie Metcalfe) and faces the biggest battle of her life that could cost her the career she loves—and expel God from the classroom once and for all.
