    "Great perspective on life"

    I appreciate everything of John Ortberg's that I read. This book does not disappoint. He weaves game analogies throughout the book to help us see life from God's perspective. Very entertaining, humorous at times and extremely perceptive.

    "Expand your thinking"

    This was my first book to read (listen to) of John Ortberg. It is not the typical motivational book that seems to be so popular with Christian writers lately. He challenges us to look at some of our attitudes in light of eternity. If you want to grow I recommend you trying this one. BTW, it's nice to have the author read the book.

    "Excellent, As Usual"

    John Ortberg is one of my favorite authors, and once again he hits the nail on the head. There is much in here worth listening to over and over.

    The book is read by the author, and it is obvious that he has not done it very often. But, it's not terrible enough to warrant not listening to it. Just not as well done as some I've heard.
