A Book Called YOU: Understanding the Enneagram from a Grace-Filled, Biblical Perspective
We all ask the question, God, who am I and how am I suppose to be real with other, but we must start with being real with ourselves. A Book Called You, helps us learn who we are with using the Enneagram personality assessment tool. I love that the book breaks down in Enneagram model in a biblical way. We are to step outside our box and the book gives us a starting point for truly understanding how God has made us. A great tool for Community Groups or bible study.
I received a copy of the book from Just Read Tours in exchange for an honest opinion. All opinions are my own.
Title: A Book Called You
Author: Matthew Stephen Brown
Publisher: W Publishing / Thomas Nelson
Release Date: October 5, 2021
Genre: Christian Growth / Enneagram
A biblically grounded Enneagram book that looks at the Enneagram numbers of people in the Bible so readers can discover more about themselves and gain specific wisdom about how and why they are uniquely made.
Who am I? Everyone asks that question, no matter their age or status in life. If we truly are supposed to be real with others, shouldn’t that start with learning how to be real with ourselves? We think so. But we have to be willing to look inside and ask, “Okay, God, who am I? What is it that I don’t see about myself that you see?” A Book Called YOU will help us learn about who we are as individuals and how a biblical view of self-discovery can improve every part of our lives.
Based on his widely successful teaching series “A Series Called You” and his personal experience using the Enneagram personality assessment tool in his marriage and other personal relationships, pastor Matt Brown offers a groundbreaking, entertaining, and heartfelt guide that highlights biblical truths alongside the Enneagram to help us better understand ourselves and how we relate to the people around us.
