One of my favourite authors is John Ortberg. I have read all of his books and I have used most of his bible study series’s that are based on his books. I enjoy his down to earth style. I find him very easy to read and very applicable to every day life. Today I began reading his newest book (2007) “When the Game is Over, It all Goes Back in the Box.”
Here is a synopsis of the book:
Winning the one game that really counts.
A fantastic career. A new house. plush 401k and a secure retirement. Good, all good – but it that what it’s all about? No matter how skilfully you play it or how many tokens you acquire, a time arrives when the game of life comes to an end. Now what?
Now it all goes back in the box.
No more game cards. No more tokens.
No more promotions, no more financial planning, no more RV’s and vacation homes.
What did you win that you get to keep?
Beginning with the right object – being rich toward God – bestselling author John Ortberg shows what it takes to really win at the game of life. “When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box” helps you live with an eternal perspective, keeping your eye on the true prize – the one that unlocks the gate to the kingdom of God.
From what I have read so far, this book is definitely going to reinforce some of the themes that God has been teaching me over the last year. I am excited to see what God is going to teach me through this book!
Has anyone read this book? What did you learn from it?
