Overview

The fourth book in the Atria Books/Beyond Words Library of Hidden Knowledge, a modernized version of one of the first works to make the Law of Attraction accessible to the general public: timeless guidance on the power of prosperity, intuition, relationships, and other perennial topics.

The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds, and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.

Florence Scovel Shinn, a prominent and provocative twentieth-century leader of the New Thought movement, was known for her sage guidance on prosperity, intuition, relationships, and fulfillment. Shinn’s distinct philosophy and practical approach included enlightening affirmations, timeless anecdotes, and action-based advice that are still relevant for the fast-paced world of today.

In addition to Shinn’s original writings, The New Game of Life features Dr. Ruth L. Miller’s contemporary translations as well as additional exercises and summaries to fully engage a new generation of thinkers.

Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle, it is a game.

Florence Scovel Shinn

With incredible vision, moving stories, and accessible “game” plans for success, The New Game of Life and How to Play It deftly guides you toward a life of prosperity and fulfillment.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shinn, who died in 1940, was an important American spiritual teacher and lecturer in the early 20th century. She self-published The Game of Life and went on to write three more books, all contained here. Shinn writes in the style of a preacher, quoting extensively from the King James Version of the Bible. In her colloquial manner, she discusses what is now called "attraction theory" and provides meditations on such goals as good health and a successful job interview, as well as meditations on prosperity, marriage, and faith. Best for Christian Bible study groups and self-help completists.
From the Publisher
"Ruth Miller’s unique writing approach helped me see how far I had come in putting my beliefs into reality. The book’s play of before and after, from original ways of thinking to today’s awareness, gave me proof that learning to manifest life choices isn’t a new game. The New Game of Life and How to Play It was an insightful way to measure my journey as growth."
—Kat Cunningham, designer & intuitive; author of Kat’s 9 Lives of Self-Discovery

"The New Game of Life and How To Play It is the quintessential text explaining in contemporary language the spiritual laws of abundance, attraction, and manifestation. For me, this book personifies the Living Word, a wonderful melding of teachings from the Bible, the Koran, the Gita and current day New Thought spirituality, all addressing the same subject: abundance and how it is available to all for the asking."
—J C Pedigo, author of Views From the Pew

“I’ve been inspired by The Game Of Life and How to Play It for over twenty years, but I appreciate this expanded, updated version by Dr. Ruth L. Miller. Her insightful touches add brilliance to this powerful, classic gem.”
—Sharron Cannon, proprietor of Lucky Cats Antiques
