Strong By Design Podcast

Jul 20, 2022

Everyone longs for a hero to save the day and most people all over the world love a good Superhero movie. 

So then, what are the characteristics we associate with a hero that make them so powerful and amazing?  Well, heroes are brave, courageous, strong, and fearless.  

Yes, those are great but what about this list of attributes… loving, compassionate, truthful, devoted, humble, meek, patient and oh yes, sacrificing. 

While the first list gets the attention at the box office, the second list is the foundation of any great Superhero at his or her core.  And those attributes are also associated with the ultimate hero, Jesus of Nazareth. He is often the star of the movie, whether people realize it or not. 

In his 3rd time on the Strong By Design podcast show, Frank Turek shares his insights about his latest book, Hollywood Heroes with host Chris Wilson. 


“We all want to have a hero come in and save us and take us to a place of bliss… That’s what Jesus actually does.” - Frank Turek
