Pastor and author John Ortberg has written a new book to help people understand the only part of the human being that is eternal, the soul. In the book, he equates the soul to the king on a chessboard. He explains, saying “The king is the most limited of chess pieces; it can only move one square at a time. But if you lose the king, game over. Your soul is vulnerable because it is needy.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
