Kurt Warner

He’s a football hall-of-famer with two MVPs and a Super Bowl ring. But before Kurt Warner shot to fame, he had to put the idol of football behind him. On today’s episode of the Great Stories Podcast, Charles Morris shares his conversation with Christian filmmaker Andy Erwin (one-half of The Erwin Brothers who brought you films like Imagine and I Still Believe) about their newest film American Underdog that tells the story of Kurt Warner’s rise to prominence in the NFL — as well as his unwavering faith in Christ.

In this episode, you will also hear part of Kurt Warner’s testimony from a 1999 Billy Graham Crusade, which was recorded just after he won a Super Bowl championship.

After playing college football, Kurt Warner didn’t have many options. But just when it seemed like his dreams of going pro would never pan out, he went from being a stock boy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback.

On the surface, this may seem like your typical rags-to-riches Cinderella story, but that misses the most essential part of Kurt’s story — his unwavering faith in Christ.

After years of challenges and setbacks, it wasn’t just hard work that led Kurt to success in the NFL … but faith, hope, and love. And this is the story you’ll find at the heart of the Erwin Brother’s most recent movie American Underdog.
