Use This If You Want to Do Serious Work In Character Transformation
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2019
This is a resource to be used for doing serious work in character transformation.
There are plenty of books out there that give you the introductory understanding of the Enneagram that we all need, this one goes far beyond that. You can take the time to look through it at a leisurely pace, but there's a lot of depth here to explore slowly. Each chapter is filled with excellent application questions and spiritual practices to engage in with God.
Beyond just the chapters on each Enneagram number, there are 12 additional resources that the authors have developed in the appendix of this book that can help you engage with God in a very powerful way if you’re willing to invest the time to go there.
I’ve read quite a few books on the Enneagram over the past ten years, and this one is very unique in the way it’s constructed. Even if you know a lot about the Enneagram itself, you’ve probably never engaged with the tool from the angle that this book was written. You’re getting a huge amount of wisdom packed into one small book!
Side Note Worth Mentioning:
There is a section near the beginning highlighting the definitions that the authors use throughout the book.
These definitions are incredibly clear on what those terms mean, particularly as they relate to the Christian perspective of these definitions.
I believe this is going to be extremely helpful for many who have been using these terms without clear mental images of what they are actually trying to say.
Ex: What comes to your mind when you think of your true self? What comes to your mind when you think of your false self? These terms get thrown around a lot now in Enneagram resources, but they are so important to be defined well if we’re using them in our journey toward complete Christlikeness.
