In the mid twentieth century the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein famously asserted that games are indefinable; there are no common threads that link them all. "Nonsense," says the sensible Bernard Suits: "playing a game is a voluntary attempt to overcome unnecessary obstacles." The short book Suits wrote demonstrating precisely that is as playful as it is insightful, as stimulating as it is delightful. Suits not only argues that games can be meaningfully defined; he also suggests that playing games is a central part of the ideal of human existence, so games belong at the heart of any vision of Utopia. Originally published in 1978, The Grasshopper is now re-issued with a new introduction by Thomas Hurka and with additional material (much of it previously unpublished) by the author, in which he expands on the ideas put forward in The Grasshopper and answers some questions that have been raised by critics.

Standing on the border of a promise, the ancient Israelites savored every word of the spies who witnessed the wonders of the Promised Land. But between their dream and reality were giant inhabitants. "We felt like grasshoppers next to them, and that's what we looked like to them " The grasshoppers had spoken, and the people were faced with a choice: run with the grasshoppers or trust the promise of God. Each of us face intimidating giants. Our problems have different names, but they are enormous in our eyes. And in their menacing shadows we are grasshoppers. If it was simply a matter of our size or ability, we would lose every time. But God is always bigger. Running with the Grasshoppers is a collection of inspirational devotionals that bring encouragement by focusing on the power of faith through a fresh and insightful look at some familiar (and not so familiar) people from the Bible. How often do we read well-known Bible stories and forget that they were people just like us? They were ordinary people with an extraordinary God. God has provided us with a record of these fellow grasshoppers as examples for our inspiration and encouragement. Through our knowledge of these random expressions of faith we can find the encouragement to help us and others persevere in troubled times. R. Mark Webb is an author who lives in Florida with his wife, Wendy. They are proud parents of two amazing daughters and great son-in-laws. Mark describes his passion for writing as a "fire in my bones that cannot be contained" and has had many opportunities to use his love for word crafting to communicate the truth and encouragement found in God's Word.
