Soon to be a major motion picture—The Upside—starring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart, and Nicole Kidman. Born with wealth and privilege, Philippe Pozzo di Borgo was not generally someone in the habit of asking for help. Then, in 1993, right on the heels of his wife’s diagnosis of a terminal illness, a paragliding accident left him a quadriplegic. He was forty-two-years-old and unable to do anything—even feed himself—without the help of another person. Passing his days hidden behind the high walls of his townhouse, after his paralysis Philippe found himself isolated and depressed. The only person who seemed unaffected by Philippe’s condition was someone who had been marginalized his entire life—Abdel, the unemployed, outspoken Algerian immigrant who would become his unlikely caretaker. In between dramas and jokes, he sustained Philippe’s life for the next ten years. A Second Wind, the basis for the upcoming major motion picture The Upside, is the inspiring true story of two men who refused to ask for help, and then wound up helping each other.

In A Second Wind Pastor Arni Jacobson and writer Robert Mims explore what happens when lifes greatest successes and spiritual victories are unexpectedly followed by stunning setbacks, doubt and depression. That journey begins with the ancient Jewish prophet Elijah and his confrontation with the wicked King Ahab and his murderous queen, Jezebel over the soul of Israel. Interspersed with Elijahs story are modern-day examples from the famous Dr. Gary Smalley, Pastors John and Joel Osteen, Pastor Rich Wilkerson and others as well as everyday people Pastor Jacobson has met and ministered to during times of grief, sickness, divorce and derailed dreams. All these accounts are connected by the need for the spiritual equivalent of what all long-distance runners crave the breath and grace to finish what remains ahead. That second wind is the blessing to rebound from victory-to-valley experiences to even greater triumphs in life. Arni Jacobson is a pastor, mentor, church planter, motivator, author, father, and grandfather. He loves to build lasting relationships and see people come to a real understanding of their relationship with Christ. Over more than 30 successful years in ministry, Arni has built dynamic churches in Merrill, Wisconsin; Salt Lake City, Utah; Salem, Oregon; and pioneered a church of more than 3,000 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In 2007, Arni and his son, Chad, embarked on a new ministry, returning to Utah to co-found City Church. Arni continues to be a much sought after speaker and counselor to churches both in the United States and abroad. Arni and his wife, Jan, and have two children, and are very proud of their grandchildren.

Perry Stuart, TV meteorologist, chiefly predicts periods of English drizzle, with bursts of heavier rain and sunshine to follow. His life calm and ordered, his face familiar to every British household, Stuart’s profound weather knowledge and accuracy have given him high status among forecasters, but no physical baptism by storm. Not, that is, until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small aeroplane as a holiday diversion. By frightening accident, Stuart learns more secrets from the flight than wind speeds – and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything that nature can evolve. ‘Second Wind’ is a twisting spiralling hurricane of a thriller that will defy anyone to treat the weather as an everyday topic of conversation.

A charming memoir of midlife by the bestselling author of Mayflower and In the Heart of the Sea, recounting his attempt to recapture a national sailing championship he'd won at twenty-two. “There had been something elemental and all consuming about a Sunfish. Nothing could compare to the exhilaration of a close race in a real blow—the wind howling and spray flying as my Sunfish and I punched through the waves to the finish.” In the spring of 1992, Nat Philbrick was in his late thirties, living with his family on Nantucket, feeling stranded and longing for that thrill of victory he once felt after winning a national sailing championship in his youth. Was it a midlife crisis? It was certainly a watershed for the journalist-turned-stay-at-home dad, who impulsively decided to throw his hat into the ring, or water, again. With the bemused approval of his wife and children, Philbrick used the off-season on the island as his solitary training ground, sailing his tiny Sunfish to its remotest corners, experiencing the haunting beauty of its tidal creeks, inlets, and wave-battered sandbars. On ponds, bays, rivers, and finally at the championship on a lake in the heartland of America, he sailed through storms and memories, racing for the prize, but finding something unexpected about himself instead.

Do you need a second wind? All champions do. Perhaps you’re struggling to keep a relationship from falling apart or picking up the pieces of a broken one. Maybe you’re dealing with a life-threatening illness or the loss of a loved one. Perhaps it’s financial hardship, or stress on the job. Even if your situation defies a reasonable explanation, the bottom line is, you need the spiritual oxygen of God’s Word to breathe a second wind into you. The term “second wind” is well known to athletes. It is defined as the renewed energy or strength that empowers that long-distance runner or fighter to push forward to win the gold medal. God calls us to be spiritual athletes—in fact, champions. Champions are people like you who are willing to push forward despite the odds because of the DNA of God within them. Using wisdom, humor and storytelling, Marion presents God’s Word in a profoundly relevant way, offering life-changing truths that can be applied right where you are, so you can seize the prize and fight to win!
