HBO’s hit series A Game Of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin’s internationally bestselling series A Song Of Ice And Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age.
They went to sleep the night before Christmas-or rather they went to bed, for sleep was long far from their bright eyes-with delightful expectations and thrills along their backs, and with little squeakings and gurglings, like so many little white mice, and if Santa Claus had not always been so very prompt in disappearing up the chimney before daybreak he must certainly have been caught. For by the time the chickens were crowing in the morning there would be an answering twitter through the house, and with a patter of little feet and subdued laughter small, white-clad figures would steal through the dim light of dusky rooms and cold passages, opening doors with sudden bursts, and shouting "Christmas gift!" into darkened chambers, at still sleeping elders. Then they would scurry away in the gray light to rake open the hickory embers and revel in the exploration of their bulging, overcrowded stockings. Not Columbus was to be envied when those discoveries were being made. What was a new world to those treasures! The thrill of the new jack-knife remains after forty years-it had four blades, each worth a province. Envy Columbus? Perish the thought!
Quit playing the game!ÿAll humans, by nature, are doomed to play an unwinnable game which looks remarkably like the harmless game of Rock/Paper/Scissors, but is, in reality, played out with the weapons of domination, manipulation, and intimidation.ÿFor those who want to learn to let go of the reins of control so they can be put in the hands of one who is infinitely more capable, the Lord, this book will be both enlightening and beneficial.ÿLike the game of Rock/Paper/Scissors, there are no real winners; only victims who feel crushed, cut, or covered by the process-or ominously empowered by it.ÿÿ What is the solution?ÿTo quit playing the game altogether!ÿHow?ÿBy recognizing and repenting of the game-playing.ÿGod does not "play the game"-indeed, control is not in Him at all.ÿThrough Him, humans can be transformed until the game of control gives way to a life of mutual submission-the dance of relationship rather than the dissonance of control.
