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

Sessions include:
1. When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box
2. Keeping Score Where It Really Counts
3. Resign as Master of the Board
4. Calling or Comfort? Choose Your Moves Wisely
5. Playing the Game with Greatness and Grace
6. The King Has One More Move"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
