I really hadn’t dove into the Enneagram way of life until recently. I blame my friends for that one (saying that in the bests way possible). Honestly, it’s one of the most eye-opening personality tests I’ve taken to truly see what makes you unique. Social media has really taken this by a storm. There are so many accounts and teachings about what to do with your “number”, but there really aren’t many great resources on how to use the Enneagram spiritually. I think I’ve found the solution to this!
This book is RICH. I’ve been pouring of this book for days, devouring the information bit by bit as it has challenged me in the best ways possible. You will want to come at this book knowing something about your enneagram number (I personally am a nine). The authors really do a wonderful job at analyzing what we think of ourselves, analyzing things that may harm us, and actions we need to take to focus our shift on viewing life in a positive light. The book is set up in three parts based upon three groupings of the enneagram numbers: the gut, the heart, and the head. Then, each chapter focuses on a specific number in one of those triads. The chapters include a table that uses words to show you “I am”…. and “I am not”…, thoughts on a true self and a false self, healing childhood hurts, discernment, and spiritual rhythms to get into. This is a must-have tool in your library for working with your enneagram and how it relates to your spiritual health. Like I said previously, it’s deep, so you will want to come back for more, over and over again, as you grow in faith and as a person. I highly recommend this book.
Thank you InterVarsity Press for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
