Item description for When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box Participant's Guide: Six Sessions on Living Life in the Light of Eternity (ZondervanGroupware) by John Ortberg & Stephen And Amanda Sorenson...
Overview Using popular games as a metaphor for the temporary nature of life on Earth, this six-session DVD curriculum neatly sorts out what's fleeting and what's permanent in God's kingdom. Winning the game of life on Earth is a temporary victory; loving God and other people is an eternal one.
Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session small group Bible study, 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

Trying to fix an unfair rating Aug 3, 2009
I will confess up front that I have not purchased this particular version, but another visitor made a buying mistake and unfairly skewed the rating, so I'm hoping to bring it up to the other rater who actually used this. I have read the original book and it's TERRIFIC! There's plenty of humor, clear-headed prospective and encouragement for those hoping to achive peace in a troubled world. I have a friend who's been giving copies out by the boat-loads and have come here to buy for a family member who's facing some tough challenges. Dig and enjoy this wonderful author - whatever he brings to the public!
Funny But Insightful Feb 23, 2009
Ortberg is a wonderful author who uses humor to get the point across about sin and grace. Excellent read.
Disappointed Dec 1, 2008
It's probably unfair but I thought I was ordering the book instead of the Participant's Guide, so I was disappointed & didn't feel like adding to the expense of my mistake by going back & ordering the book. The guide without the book is pretty useless.
