  • Missio Alliance Essential Reading List of 2016
Ignorance is bliss--except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships--and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach--a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Witty and filled with stories, this book allows you to peek inside each of the nine Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you have read the chapter about your own number. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help take you further along into who you really are--leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

Prior to reading this ...

Prior to reading this book, I knew little about the Enneagram system. I'm fascinated by the ways in which we can be typed into different personality groups, so I was happy to delve into this ancient system. The Enneagram is similar to the Myers-Briggs system, with more emphasis on behavioral patterns over thinking patterns. This book is marketed as "Christian", but a specific religious leaning is not necessary in order to read, enjoy, and learn from the material. While the authors do occasionally talk about their relationship to God, the connection emphasizes spiritual connections more than a specific religion or belief system. The writing style is conversational and flows well. The authors interject personal anecdotes throughout, giving the intimate feel of a friendly discussion rather than a dry textbook lesson. I particularly like that the authors don't use The Enneagram to simply label us with a personality type number and a list of traits, but, more importantly, they teach us how to identify our negative behaviors and offer ways to work on correcting them. The authors stress that our personality types don't cast us in concrete. When we're self-aware, we're able to challenge ourselves to grow and become the best version of ourselves. *I was provided with an ebook copy by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.*

A friend recommended this book as being filled with a great insight about life. It is a framework for understanding how people develop their personalities. It is also a means of better understanding yourself. For me the challenge is to grasp the presented spectrum of personalities well enough to know how to clarify yourself and your loved ones. The expectation is that knowing yourself better opens the door to a fuller and more satisfying life. I finished the book realizing that at best it is just an introduction. I will need to know more before I can begin to be confident about categorizing people. And in the end even if you don't fully accept the schema for categorizing people you have enriched you insight into the working of your mind and the mind of others.

This is a helpful and honest introduction to the Enneagram-it's written from a Christian perspective. I felt empowered in reading this and appreciated the unbiased insight as well as the theme of compassion and mutual understanding.
