Canadian Christian leaders give God’s Not Dead 2 rave reviews

During the month of March, Pure Flix Entertainment hosted a series of screenings for the new movie God’s Not Dead 2, giving Canadian Christian leaders a sneak peek of the sequel to the highest-grossing independent faith film of 2014 in the U.S.

With the film already receiving strong, early interest, evidenced by a massive social media fan base of over 8 million Facebook followers, the screenings were filled with key influencers in Abbotsford, Red Deer, Saskatoon, and Waterloo, eager to see the film before it releases across Canada on April 1, 2016.

The story and cast

The film focuses on a Christian teacher (Melissa Joan Hart) who must fight for her job and her reputation after mentioning Jesus when answering a student’s question in her public-school classroom. Her refusal to apologize leads school district officials to enlist a civil liberties group to find her guilty of violating the “separation of church and state.”

God’s Not Dead 2 also stars Jesse Metcalfe, Hayley Orrantia, David A.R. White, Sadie Robertson, Robin Givens, the late Senator Fred Dalton Thompson, Pat Boone, and includes featured appearances of The Newsboys.
