There is a cosmic conspiracy affecting every person who has ever lived. The world, our hearts, and Satan himself conspire to steal our happiness. These powerful agents breed discontentment with our possessions, relationships, jobs, and circumstances.
Altrogge writes from his own experience. He argues that while discontentment assaults us from every direction, its promises are empty. “If only’s” may offer happiness, satisfaction, or a better life, but on their own they can’t deliver.
With humor and honesty, Altrogge helps us do battle with discontentment by steering us back to the central truths of the gospel. He addresses issues like complaining and idolatry and reminds us of all that we have, and will have, in Christ. Readers will be drawn to his winsome writing and practical application. Discussion questions follow each chapter, making this book a useful resource for small groups.
