Product Description

What can we take with us to the Kingdom of God?

Bestselling author, pastor, and consummate storyteller John Ortberg tells us we can take pretty much only what we brought to the game. Everything else goes back in the box--the cash atop the corporate ladder, the vacation home at the lake, and the status vehicle in between.

All the tokens, game pieces, and prizes are left behind when we walk away from the table. The only real "winnings" we claim and keep are our own souls and the love we have for Christ and each other.

If you think you might need a better game plan--one that offers an eternal perspective--this strategy-filled playbook walks you through what it takes to really win big at the game of life.

    another great book in the Ortberg tradition --- takes a truth, paints a picture of present reality, and applies God's Word. Excellent resource to cause the listener to evalutate what they value in this life.
