Product Description

Life is like a game. It moves towards a goal, has rules to follow, and won't go on forever. John Ortberg explains how to play the game of life in When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box. Rather than striving to be Master of the Board, Ortberg reminds us that the object of life is to be rich towards God---loving Him and loving others. Everything else---your possessions, your resume, your money, your power---will all go back in the box when your life is over. Learn how to play the game, recognize hazards along the way, and collect eternal trophies when you follow Ortberg's kingdom-based strategy!

Publisher's Description

Remember the thrill of winning at checkers or Parcheesi? You become the Master of the Board—the victor over everyone else. But what happens after that, asks bestselling author John Ortberg. You know the answer: It all goes back in the box. You don’t get to keep one token, one chip, one game card. In the end, the spoils of the game add up to nothing. Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box neatly sorts out what’s fleeting and what’s permanent in God’s kingdom. Being Master of the Board is not the point; being rich toward God is. Winning the game of life on Earth is a temporary victory; loving God and other people with all our hearts is an eternal one. Using humor, terrific stories, and a focus on winning “the right trophies,” Ortberg paints a vivid picture of the priorities that all Christians will want to embrace.

    The book certainly helps to put the circumstances in our lives in an eternal perspective, and the author includes many anecdotes and meaningful examples to prove his point while using the playing of Monopoly as a metaphorical, and sometimes very realistic, backdrop.

    Great book. Some truths need to be repeated over and over. John Ortberg does this well, using personal stories and good humor.
