About the Resource:
Kevin Sorbo portrayed the invincible Hercules on TV, but in real life, as a vulnerable human, he found “true strength” in God.
After a health crisis left him partially blind and incapacitated, the television actor playing a demigod hid details of his medical condition, including an aneurysm, from the media and others. He continued to film Hercules, which was at the time the number one television series.
His health crisis helped him redefine “success,” and today, he shares his testimony to encourage others. In his book, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life, Kevin Sorbo recounts his illness, his painful recovery and his triumph over adversity with God’s strength!
