Movie Mayhem – God’s Not Dead 2

Back in the day (around the fifties), Biblical and faith-based films were box-office behemoths. That popularity waned, though, through the seventies, eventually relegating these types of films to the niche and straight-to-video markets. But over the past decade or so, faith-based films have made a comeback, attaching themselves to a hungry, dedicated audience. This year alone has already seen several Biblical or faith-based films. In Risen, an atheist (before atheism was really a thing, I think) has his faith tested when he witnesses a man he knows was executed rise from His grave; a mother has her faith tested when her young daughter is stricken with a terminal disease in Miracles From Heaven; and in God’s Not Dead 2, a high school teacher’s faith is tested when she’s put on trial for having the audacity to answer a question about Jesus in class. (For the record, I didn’t see The Young Messiah, so I can’t comment on the specifics of that film — but I do believe a character’s faith will be tested at some point. If anyone saw it, tell me if I’m wrong.) Read Full Review
