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.

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.

Expand your thinking

This was my first book to read (listen to) of John Ortberg. It is not the typical motivational book that seems to be so popular with Christian writers lately. He challenges us to look at some of our attitudes in light of eternity. If you want to grow I recommend you trying this one. BTW, it's nice to have the author read the book.
