    Rohr and Ebert have written what I think is the best overall book on the Enneagram on the market I have ready many I think several of them are outstanding Chestnut, Heuertz, Riso & Hudson, and Helen Palmer have all made tremendous contributions that I think are well worth reading This book is my top pick for a few reasons It will introduce you to the Enneagram if you're not familiar but its not a primer (see Cron & Stabile for a great intro book) Its not a book that focuses on all the valuable tangents of the enneagram such as wings, subtypes, and pathways for growth It's the best overall book, that will give a clear and yet unapologetic understanding of the transformative value of the Enneagram.

    Yeah, I was a little put off by the mystical name and cultish icon, but this method of discerning someone's personality, their gifts, and the reasons for their favorite sin has POWER.Dating back to the Desert Fathers, it helps reveal the true self over against the false, or shadow, self Myers Briggs and StrengthsFinder 2.0 are helpful, but this is NECESSARY.Richard Rohr writes, [] the Enneagram shows us, among other things, the dark side of our gifts [] people are are destroyed by their gifts and talents We are destroyed by our gifts because we identify too closely with what we can do well Once we were told that we were destroyed by our sins That's true, but the issue is subtle.That rang true with me at a deep levelHe went on, We cling too much to what comes our way naturally We spend the first thirty years of life developing an impression, a self image that we fixate on And by the time you're forty, this cultivated image is so ingrained that we are literally prepared to go through hell just so we don't have to give it up It determines most of what we do or don't do, say or don't say, what we occupy ourselves with and what we don't We're all affected by it.Then he poses the ultimate existential question:The question is: Do I have the freedom to be anything other than this role and this image.And the answer is Yes, you do, which Rohr spells out in the book So do yourself, your spouse and family, your community do us all a favor and READ the book.

    I was first introduced to Richard Rohr a few years ago Since that time I have purchased a number of his books, I receive his daily emails, and have taken an online course from the Center for Action and Contemplation that he directs All of these have been wonderful in assisting me on my spiritual journey some even introduced me to the Enneagram.A few years have passed since I first learned about the Enneagram, but a recent podcast by Crystal Paine reminded me of the topic and led me to look for materials to help me learn on the subject This book was my first purchase on the topic I believe that it is truly one of the best purchases that I have ever made!The authors explained everything in detail, provided examples and diagrams Although reading this book was an extremely humbling experience, I am encouraged that I can move forward and grow in many areas of my life I especially love the Christian perspective of the book Being given examples of people from the Bible who represent the 9 types along with scriptures was wonderful I am not sure that I can adequately describe how extremely happy I am that I ordered this book! It is going to be a well worn book since I am going to be rereading it and referring back to it regularly.

    This is the full explanation of the Enneagram I was surprised how much history and religion is behind this I'm working with friends to improve our communications and relationships based on the information in this book Also, I am an admirer of Richard Rohr and feel confident about working on this program because he is a notable expert on Christian based writings to help find our true selves and thus be able to have deeper and honest relationships with others.

    I am glad to be exposed to this take on the Enneagram, but would not recommend it as a first source to anyone just beginning to learn about it I have, for that purpose, enjoyed books by Riso and Hudson, who are detailed, and, I would say, straightforward Richard Rohr's book seems to me to be his personal Roman Catholic Christian interpretation and application of the Enneagram's principles I don't say I think he is *wrong;* in fact, I find his emphasis on our need to evolve beyond the types compelling Although any basic intro to the Enneagram will speak of the underlying pain which has caused an individual to adopt the approach of a chosen type, Rohr (with an RC focus on suffering?) makes this central to his explication Again, I don't think he's *wrong.* In fact, I find his thesis compelling that the talents we develop as we express our chosen type demonstrate how God makes use of our sins But if you are just learning about the Enneagram, I would recommend Riso and Hudson, who will provide detail, and, I might imagine, interest, in the first instance.

    A really great exploration of personality it is accessibly written and the descriptions are super accurate I love the in depth explorations and how it is all tied to the christian faith.


  7. says:

    My first Enneagram Book, and it’s good I was hoping there would be a copy of an enneagram test in the book, but there wasn’t, so I went online took a couple of the online inventories I like the faith perspective that Richard Rohr writes from, And the diagrams in the book are very good for helping to understand the concepts as well as the assertions that the author makes.


  8. says:

    A fascinating look at the nine Enneagram types Lots of details on each type as well as examples from the Bible Deep and detailed while also being easy to follow and understand.


  9. says:

    I don't know why we have not been introduced to the enneagram before, having said that, this book can be amazingly and uncannily true It needs to be used prayerfully and encouragingly to help those who wish to understand themselves better and be compassionate and generously forbearing of others and not used to point the finger at people, but rather 'remove the plank from their own eye' with humility I was helped a lot by reading this on my own, but a group would be good, if the members know and trust each other There are many ways that the Holy Spirit can transform us, this is a useful tool It needs to be regarded as just that.


  10. says:

    This is such an interesting book, even if you have read one on the Enneagram before, this is brilliant As with all of Richard Rohr books it is hard to put down He certainly has a gift at helping you to understand things.


  11. says:

    Started off really good then got so over complicated I couldn’t keep up, my brains already complicated enough.Would of been great if it was kept simple.


  12. says:

    Like all that Richard Rohr writes this book is first class, stimulating, incisive, enlightening I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about really living life to the full and wrestling with the deep mysteries of human nature, the world and God.
