Publisher's Summary

A promotion. A new house. The rewards of winning at life's game can be thrilling. But eventually everything goes back into the box, and what ultimately matters is whether we've played according to God's rules. John Ortberg uses popular games and his trademark gift of storytelling to help us live our lives for the things that really count.

Excellent, As Usual

John Ortberg is one of my favorite authors, and once again he hits the nail on the head. There is much in here worth listening to over and over.

The book is read by the author, and it is obvious that he has not done it very often. But, it's not terrible enough to warrant not listening to it. Just not as well done as some I've heard.

Great perspective on life

I appreciate everything of John Ortberg's that I read. This book does not disappoint. He weaves game analogies throughout the book to help us see life from God's perspective. Very entertaining, humorous at times and extremely perceptive.
