Someone recently said, “Tony Green has lived about four lives in one and is telling his story in a new book.” There is much truth to that statement.
Tony Green’s speaking and writing credentials do not come from any formalized theological training. Instead, his story reflects a life that has experienced the battle of good versus evil firsthand. He grew up in humble beginnings, achieved a long career of worldly success, fell far off his high horse down to street rags, and has been rescued to a life of kingdom riches. In full transparency, Tony fearlessly tells on himself and in doing so demonstrates real accounts of God’s grace and mercy. Not called to live a comfortable life, Tony’s dramatic seasons in the refiner’s fire inspire his speaking and his writing. He yearns for God-through-him to make an impact on eternity.
He grew up in a small town in Arkansas, graduated high school and college in Texas, and worked in corporate America for thirty-one years. He was a Vice President of Sales for Coca-Cola for over a decade. In those years, he out-earned 99.6 percent of the world’s population. Yet he also lived classified as “homeless” for seven years, finally hitting the rock bottom of sleeping on inner-city sidewalks.
Through it all, God lived up to His promise, never revoking Tony’s spiritual gifts or his kingdom calling. Awakened to triumphant life in Christ, Tony broke a promise to himself and wrote and published Triumphant Surrender. In it, Tony fearlessly tells all the ugliness of his life striving to do things on his own versus the beauty of his life when he walks it out in the Spirit. His new favorite scripture comes from Apostle Paul in his second letter to the church family in Corinth: “If I must boast, I would rather boast about the things that show how weak I am.”
Triumphant Surrender was released on New Year’s Day 2021 and instantly became the new year’s first #1 New Release within Amazon's Christian Discipleship category.
His closest covenant friends refer to him in these ways: “A magnetic personality, a gifted mind, a gifted writer and speaker, extremely passionate, a resilient overcomer, an incredible communicator and motivator, a gifted visionary, compelling, inspiring, passion on fire, faith-filled, genuine, vulnerable, transparent, and believable.” Yet life’s challenges have also given him a deep self-awareness of his own shortcomings.
He has three life goals: First, to increasingly grow in his intimate relationship with God. Second, to be a loving dad that Chris and Carleigh will be increasingly grateful for and brag about. Third, to allow the love of God-through-him to love, respect and serve humankind.
Tony resides wherever God plants him, even if that is at the ends of the earth.
