Blog Reviewer Giveaway: “The Greener Grass Conspiracy”

Do you ever wonder how it’s possible to be so blessed and so unhappy at the same time? To have more than any generation in history and still crave more?

Author Stephen Atlrogge says that there’s a conspiracy affecting every person who has ever lived. A conspiracy between the world, our hearts, and Satan himself to steal our joy. Together they breed discontentment with our possessions, relationships, jobs, and circumstances.

  • The world lies to us. It tells us we’ll be happy if we buy more things, have more fun, drink more beer, purchase a bigger house, climb the career latter, stay single, get married. The world makes big, fat, promises of immediate pleasure.
  • Satan lies to us. He says God is holding good back from us, that he doesn’t want us to be happy, and that if God really loved us – we wouldn’t be sick, struggle financially, etc. Satan slanders God’s character and goodness. He’s happy as long as we’re not happy in God.
  • Our hearts play along with the world and with Satan. It tells me I need to have certain things and I need them now. A new TV, a salary bump, a house, children, to be married, etc.

In The Greener Grass Conspiracy, Altrogge helps us battle discontentment with the central truths of the gospel.

  5. I would love to review this book. I have been following Stephen Altrogge’s blog and am a fan of his gospel centered encouragements. As the song says, my heart is prone to wander and that is because of the lie of discontentment that my heart is so prone to.

    Comment by Jeff Lewis — March 28, 2011 @ 2:06 pm

  6. I am interested. I try to read as many Crossway titles as I can and this will help with the discipline of writing reviews.

  29. What an exciting opportunity! I am new to blogging, but not reviewing. I have on average 200 readers per week on my small blog. But I hope to increase my sphere of readership. I review music for my campus (Illinois State University) radio station. I am a college student, committed to believing the gospel and understanding the gospel in my church community and unbelieving city. I am a member of Charis Community Church, an Acts 29 church in Normal, IL. Thank you for the potential opportunity!

  42. I would totally go for it. A lot of the people I work with in ministry originally came to the U.S. because of the Greener Grass Conspiracy. Perhaps this book would help with that.
