"For all the ways we live unawakened lives, the enneagram is here to help. The Sacred Enneagram is a trustworthy, richly insightful guide to finding yourself in the enneagram's 9-type profiles, and applying this practical wisdom for a life transformed. Far more than a personality test, author Chris Heuertz writes, the enneagram is a sacred map to the soul. Lies about who we think we are keep us trapped in loops of self-defeat. But the enneagram offers a bright path to cutting through the internal clutter and finding our way back to God and to our true identity as God created us. Chris Heuertz' life was forever changed after he learned about the enneagram 15 years ago. Today, he leads enneagram workshops all over the world. Join Chris as he shows you how this ancient tool can help you awaken to the gifts God has given you, find freedom from your personal patterns of sin and fear, and grow in acceptance of your identity as you grow with God. In conversational style with compelling stories, The Sacred Enneagram will show you: How to understand the 'why' behind your type, beyond caricatures and stereotypes; How to align your type with prayer postures; How to identify and find freedom from self-destructive patterns; How to grow in spiritual discernment; How to face your past wounds and step toward healing; How to awaken your unique gifts to serve today's broken world. Chris's own journey with the enneagram is an accessible introduction and exploration of how the enneagram can change your life, because to the extent that we are transformed, the world will be transformed."--Provided by publisher.

The Sacred Enneagram by Christiopher L. Heuertz is a beautiful look at an immensely helpful personality typing tool. I love the whole way through the book he sites other people's work. He's obviously done his homework and "heart-work". If you've never heard of the Enneagram, it's an ancient tool that can be traced worldwide all the way back to the 4th or 5th century. It started to be written down and used as a psychological personality typing diagram in the 1950s.

If you're looking for a basic 101 primer to the Enneagram, perhaps it's better to read "The Road Back To You" by Ian Morgan Cron or "The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective" by Richard Rohr. But, if you've started learning about the Enneagram already, I couldn't recommend this book higher. Heuertz brings self knowledge to the table for dinner, but also offers soul knowledge for dessert. He weaves in thoughts and practices on contemplative prayer practices. It's this added perspective that really drives home what can be gained through using the Enneagram effectively.

On a personal note, the Enneagram has changed my life in radical and dramatic ways. It has changed my relationship with myself, my wife, my children, and my general surroundings. It has been like ointment on a deep sunburn. It has done more healing within my heart than I'd care to admit. It's just incredibly impact, and I hope that everyone gets a chance to do their own research into this life altering tool.
