Item description for Audiobook-Audio CD-When Game Is Over It All Goes I by John Ortberg...

The rewards of winning at lifes game can be thrilling, but eventually everything goes back into the box, and what ultimately matters is whether one has played according to Gods rules. Ortberg uses popular games and his trademark gift of storytelling to help readers live their lives for the things that really count. Unabridged. 7 CDs.

Publishers 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

Reviews - What do customers think about Audiobook-Audio CD-When Game Is Over It All Goes I?

worth the time  May 24, 2010
Borrowed a copy from a friend, decided to add it to my library of study/teaching materials. Takes a bit of patience with oneself to work through the lessons, as one tests the theories and instructions pertaining to personal experiences. there are supplemental materials to use in class situations where a student workbook is helpful. Not light reading, but worth the time and effort to finish the book.
Living a life worth having  May 5, 2010
I think it was John Bunyan who said, "If a man would live well, let him fetch his last day to him and make it always his company keeper." This book is one to help you do just that. I read this book during Lent this year to help me with examen. It's a book every Christian should read reflectively. Ortberg mixes his words of wisdom with humor to make the medicine go down, but the book deals with a serious subject: How to live a life that really matters (to God, you and others you care for) and be the kind of person that others will love now and miss when you're gone. Life's too short to waste. I highly recommend it.
Matthew  Mar 12, 2010
This book puts life into prospective. John Ortberg is one of my favorite authors. This was my second book of his and I just got another. He's a very inspirational writer. I would recommend this book and many others of his to everybody who's looking to grow as a Christian.
Thought provoking  Jul 6, 2009
Ortberg's book is a thought provoking read. Indeed, life is a lot like a game...figure out the rules, devise a strategy, hope for a bit of luck, strive for success. But in the end, what we leave behind...our what's important. I borrowed this book from a friend and had to have my own copy.
Great inspiration.  May 1, 2009
I read this book at a time when life challenges seemed to consume me. Without doubt, the author reminded me to get my priorities straight through the use of simple stories and easy to remember recommendations. Rather than worry about "things," look for ways to help "people."

The chapters may be read in isolation. I've done that many times. We learn about the author's life (game player grandson, tennis player, church leader) on the way to a "life lesson" about trusting in God's plan. We're also reminded of people in the past that suffered while growing on the inside. Often, I simply read the end of a chapter as daily inspiration. Rather than feeling stressed about things, I was inspired to find ways of making life better for those I'm around. That's not always easy.

Will you find this book as uplifting as I did? Maybe. I needed reminders because it was so easy to fall back into that routine of trying to control temporary situations. Look back at all the time/energy wasted on things that ultimately fade as priorities until new things come up to worry about. After reading this book (multiple times), I'm a better person for coming up with ways to make God smile. In the end, that's all you take with you.

Good luck.
