Review

"This book delivers hope! Everyone needs the refreshing power and strength of a second wind." -- Lee Strobel, author of A Case for Faith "In Second Wind, Bill and Dean communicate with the joy that is a natural gift and the wisdom that is earned only by hardship and suffering. When they add to it the guidance of great souls that have gone before us, it becomes a textbook for anyone who ever faced an uphill slope on the path of life." -John Ortberg, author of Everybody's Normal Till You Get To Know Them

"Second Wind will help you renew your strength and get a new grip on your life. Truth and great humor are the hallmarks of this wonderful book of hope and encouragement." -Stephen Arterburn, founder of Women of Faith and host of New Life Live

"I have known Bill Butterworth for eighteen years and have seen him running strong, completely winded, and given a Second Wind to run again. In the book he and Dean Merrill have written, Bill speaks not only from his own experience but from the experience of countless others whose strength has been renewed from a Second Wind. So if you have ever felt your legs turn to lead, ever felt your lungs burn with exhaustion, ever felt you couldn't go another step further, this book will not only lift you up, it will cheer you on." -Ken Gire, author of The Divine Embrace, Moments with the Savior, and Windows of the Soul

"For those banged and bruised by life's first half, for those struggling with who to be and what to do with the thirty 'bonus years' twenty-first century people are given, Second Wind is a book of hope and promise." -Bob Buford, founder Leadership Network and author of Halftime; Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance

"Bill Butterworth makes me laugh, but even more important, he makes me think. Bill is much more than an inspirational speaker, more than a teacher. He is a locomotive of energy, commitment, and faith in our Judeo-Christian principles. No wonder I like him so much." -Jack Kemp, former congressman and codirector of Empower America
