God's NOT Dead 2 By Travis Thrasher

God’s not dead . . . but they’re trying to kick him out of the public square!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 Thawley’s 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 doesn’t even believe in. Tom’s 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 Grace’s 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.

God's Not Dead 2 is similar to the first book. However, in this book it is a  high school teacher defending her faith.  The make up of  the book is refreshing with  short chapters and interesting dialogue. The story is not at all hard to follow. The author  switches from one character's story to another, but he does it in a way that is not confusing. The characters are well rounded and very likeable. I found myself wanting to enter the story and defend Grace myself. The story shows how someone's Christian faith can separate them from some people and draw others to them, The book also shows how our religious liberties are taken away from us day by day. The situations that the characters face in the book are situations that each of us face. I like the idea of Christian books and movies getting the attention that God's Not Dead 2 is getting. It has a better chance of touching someones life that is possibly struggling. 
I gave this book 4 stars.  I recommend this book and I hope you read it before you go see the movie.
