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.

    " Great book. I highly recommend all to read as it helped me put life into proper perspective as to what is truly important. All the other stuff goes back in the box and is not worth wasting my time on. "

    " Ortberg is one of my favorite Christian writers. This is his take on 'you can't take it with you.' Easy, non-judgmental read. "
