Welcome back to Hope Springs . . . where Christian Grace Wesley teaches high school history. She is on the hot seat with the school district after she answers Brooke Thawleys question about Jesus during a classroom discussion. Suddenly, Brooke becomes a pawn in an epic court case that could cost Grace the career she loves.
Tom Endler, a lawyer with the teachers union, is tapped to reluctantly represent Grace in her fight for her First Amendment rights. He finds himself fighting for a cause he doesnt even believe in. Toms research leads him to Amy Ryan, a reporter and former skeptic who found faith while battling cancer and watching the classroom battle unfold at Hadleigh University a year ago. Both are soon on a journey to understand what genuine faith really means as they fight to save Graces job and avoid a court decision that could cripple the free speech rights of all Christians in the marketplace.
Based on the highly anticipated movie sequel, this novel tells more about the story behind the new blockbuster film and gives fans an update on favorite characters from the original film.

Travis Thrasher is one of my favorite authors and having the chance to read the book to God's Not Dead 2 by him was exciting. I just finished the book yesterday and the movie came out last week which I want to see and it will be interesting to see just how the book holds up to the movie version.
Grace Wesley is a high school history teacher when she is asked an honest question about Jesus in a public school. Her reasoned response lands her in deep trouble in a court case that could cost her the career she loves. The principal and the superintendent and a zealous civil liberties group join forces against Grace wanting to expel God from the classroom and the public square-once and for all. Tom Endler is a lawyer with the teachers union who represents Grace. What makes it interesting is that Tom doesn't even believe in the cause that he is representing.
The characters are updated in this book so it is not necessary to have seen the first movie. This story did start out slow for me..had trouble getting into the story line but halfway through I found it to be enjoyable and was trying to see just how the lawyer is going to pull it off and get Grace acquitted. With each passing day, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less in the public square. If Christians don't take a stand today, will we even have the choice tomorrow? Where will you stand?
Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for this free copy just for my honest opinion.
debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5God's Not Dead 2 ~ Travis ThrasherApril 3, 2016debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This is the story of Grace, a history teacher who goes on trial for answering a student's question about the history of the content stated in the bible. When the student tells her parents, they go to the principal and then Grace is called into the office. Because Grace knows she didn't do anything wrong, when the school board wants her to admit she is guilty and walk away, Grace won't do it. Then the issue goes to court. Grace's lawyer is an atheist and is determined to win for her. You also have Amy a reporter that decides to have a daily blog on this issue, along with a few other characters.
I would recommend this book if you like a slow paced story with lots of characters and many side stories happening. To me this story was too slow and didn't get to the point very quickly. I really had to force myself to read through the book. I just wanted to jump to end and find the outcome of the trial. I hope the movie is more fast paced, much of the book could have been deleted and kept my attention.

By Travis Thrasher
What happens when the name of Jesus comes up in school? This book will take you through just that situation. Grace Wesley, a history teacher, and her students were discussing Martin Luther King Jr and Gandhi when a student asks a question, comparing a quote of Jesus to what was being discussed. When the teacher quotes the Bible verse and the uses the name Jesus, everything gets out of hand. A student sends a text about the teacher using the name of Jesus, the principal of the school, the ACLU, and others get involved. It turns out that the parent of the student, who asked the question, brings legal account against the teacher because of separation of church and state.
The story contains many wonderful characters, some believers and unbelievers. Grace Wesley's lawyer Tom Endler, a young lawyer with his own problems; a girl named Amy, a new believer who writes a blog about the trial; the ACLU lawyer of the plaintiff; the judge; and others that makes this a great story. If you are familiar with the first book, God is not Dead, you find some of the original people in this book.
This story shows how one situation can separate some and bring others together. The book is easy to understand and will show how our freedoms are being abused and gradually taken away.
