"God's Not Dead 2" shines a light on the religious freedom battles being waged across the country that many Americans are not aware of. Using a similar formula as the first film, the creators of "God's Not Dead 2" move from scientific proof of God's existence to evaluating historical proof of Jesus' life on Earth.
Having a female lead this time around, '90s icon Melissa Joan Hart ("Sabrina the Teenage Witch," "Melissa & Joey") takes on one of her most dramatic roles to date and brings the plot home with her convincing performance of persecuted teacher Grace Wesley.
When not looking after her grandpa, Walter (Pat Boone), Wesley spends most of her time in the classroom teaching high school history. But one day her answer to a student's question about Jesus' teachings compared to Gandhi's ideology, lands the happy-go-lucky teacher in court. more >>

Evangelicals are the least engaged with the presidential election compared to other major faith groups, even though they acknowledge the importance of the race, according to a new survey.
A national survey by Barna Group says that while less than one-third of registered voters are following the news about the election "very closely," only one out of five, or 20 percent, of evangelicals are doing so.
On the contrary, voters who associate with non-Christian faiths, including Judaism, Islam and Buddhism, reported the highest level of engagement, as 41 percent of them said they were following campaign news very closely, which is twice the proportion among evangelical Christians, notes the survey, in which 869 registered voters participated between Jan. 28 and Feb. 4. more >>
Christians should be open with God about their feelings and ultimately trust in His plan for them, the Rev. Billy Graham advises in response to those who feel that God isn't solving their problems quickly enough.
The 97-year-old Baptist minister was responding to a question published in the Kansas City Star Wednesday that read, in part: "I'm kind of angry at God because he doesn't seem to be doing anything about my problems. What would happen to me if I told him?"
In his response, Graham encourages Christians to present their true feelings to God openly, saying that He already knows all of our thoughts and emotions anyway. more >>
