John Ortberg takes the...

John Ortberg takes the image of a game, such as Monopoloy. He recounts anecdotes with his grandmother, who taught him a great deal about sportsmanship and games in general, and he relates it to daily life. The overall theme is to make live worth living, since it will eventually come to an end, just like a board game. The book is divided into sections - setup, hazards, how to play, and so on - with parts of games used as analogies for different aspects of living life. I don't suppose there was anything in the book that I hadn't read before in other contexts, but I found an interesting and often thought-provoking read. Ortberg's style is clear and inspiring, and there are some unexpected humorous asides here and there. Recommended.

I am reading this to help lead my small group. We are watching the companion DVD series each week. John Ortberg gives some good food for thought regarding how one lives with an eternal perspective.

The book consists of a number of entertaining stories and anecdotes to lead the reader to see what the important things in life are. The book is fairly light on Bibilical references and stories. It almost felt like a more organized "Chicken Soup for the Soul" book. It is easy to read and somewhat enjoyable, but is unlikely to change anyone's life. This one probably should go back in the box.
