The Greener Grass Conspiracy: Finding Contentment on Your Side of the Fence
By Stephen Altrogge
With humor and honesty, Stephen Altrogge helps us do battle with discontentment by steering us back to the central truths of the gospel. He addresses issues such as complaining and idolatry, reminding us of all that we have, and will have, in Christ.
“Often we are not content, sometimes we are content with too little. We need help with contentment, and Stephen Altrogge offers it. His style is friendly, funny, and easy to read. He’s perceptive, clear, relevant, biblical and Christ-centered, drawing as readily from the Puritans as contemporary culture. God spoke to my heart through The Greener Grass Conspiracy. Don’t be content not to read it.”
Randy Alcorn, author, Heaven; If God Is Good; and Hand in Hand
“This book should be titled, ‘how to be happy.’ Not the superficial, frivolous, world-saturated happiness either. No, the soul-quenching, perspective-shaping type flowing from springs of gospel contentment. Stephen Altrogge has found the source and invites us to come and satisfy our thirst. Get this book, drink deeply, and be happy.”
Dave Harvey, Teaching Pastor, Summit Church, Naples, Florida; author, When Sinners Say I Do and Am I Called?
“Stephen Altrogge skillfully polishes off the rare jewel of Christian contentment collecting dust for generations and lets it shine brightly to a new generation of gospel people whose cluttered and discontented hearts long for less to live with and more to live for. His timeless insights are most timely. I highly recommend it!”
Tom Nelson, author, Work Matters; Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church, Overland Park, Kansas; President, Made to Flourish
“We crave the other grass when Christ has given us the lushest, all-satisfying plains of hope and joy. With humor and grit, and written within the crucible of suffering, Altrogge exposes and scorches these discontented dreams by magnifying how rich we are in Christ.”
