God’s Not Dead 2 depicts a teacher under fire for answering a student’s question about Jesus
“It’s very unfortunate. The idea with the movie is that Jesus shouldn’t be an uncomfortable name to say.”
The movie is based around a high school history teacher, played by Hart, who comes under fire for answering a student’s question about Jesus.
The actor, who is also a fashion designer and a producer, has also put her relationship with God at the centre of her life.
She said she had signed up to Bible study and spent a lot of time praying.
“God has been a sort of snowball effect in my life,” she added.
