Item description for When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box: Six Sessions on Living Life in the Light of Eternity by john ortberg...

Overview
Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session DVD curriculum 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.

Publishers Description

Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session small group Bible study DVD, When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box, by John Ortberg, neatly sorts out what s fleeting and what s permanent in God s kingdom.

Today is the day you choose which game you want to win which prize you want to collect which priorities you want to set. It s a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the other players and you own the board. It s also a thrill to win a promotion at work the new house you wanted that sports car you ve always eyed.

But just like the game cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they all go back in the box. Games can cast a powerful spell, says bestselling author John Ortberg. But the wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end. So when everything goes back in the box, you ll have made what is temporary a servant to what is eternal, and you ll leave this life knowing you ve achieved the only victory that matters.

When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box will teach you to:
Live passionately and boldly
Learn how to be active players in the game that pleases God
Find your true mission and offer your best
Fill each square on the board with what matters most
Seek the richness of being instead of the richness of having

This DVD is designed for use with the companion Participant Guide (sold separately). When used together, they work as a powerful catalyst for spiritual growth.

1. When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box

Great Book  Aug 3, 2008
I enjoy all of Ortberg's books much for his sense of humor but mostly for his down to earth presentation of the meaning of salvation.
