Publisher's Summary

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.

A Pretty Good Book, Not a Great Audiobook

The book gives a decent overview of the Enneagram, its history, and its implications. The overview of each of the nine identity structure types, however, was wanting. It’s as if the author assumes the reader already knows quite a bit about the enneagram. As is unfortunately often the case with modern Christian literature, the same point was made repeatedly with slightly different wording. It didn’t help that the author repeated words and phrases throughout, an issue only amplified by the biggest problem with this audiobook: the narrator.
The narrator’s attempt to convey the author’s meaning with his voice was absolutely horrible. His inflection made it difficult to tell when one sentence ended and the next began. His whispery emphasis on unimportant words distracted from the point of a sentence. I found myself repeatedly going back and listening to entire sections over after realizing that the way it was narrated is not how it should have been read.
Overall, I would not recommend this audiobook. I would only recommend the physical book to those who have not first looked at more established places for information on the Enneagram and its application in our spiritual and personal development (Richard Rohr, the Enneagram Institute, to name a couple).

No accompanying documents!

This book is tough to understand because it explains a visual concept without any diagrams or pictures. I am still unsure about many of the thoughts and ideas because I don't fully grasp what they are. Also, I have some reservations about the ”Sacredness" of the Enneagram. This was the first book I have ever read the book topic I recommend starting with a different book if this is your first time learning about the Enneagram. However, if you are already familiar with the topic, this is probably an excellent book for you.

Good information on the Enneagram

Very good book on the enneagram, excellent narrator. The material was dense and for that reason works best in written rather than audio format.

Disappointed!!!!

Thoroughly disappointed in the book! This is a history book....lulled me to sleep! I was expecting a chapter devoted to each number. Instead info on the numbers is scattered through the chapters. Difficult to follow and keep track of certain numbers and their info.
I want my money back!!!!!

New to the Enneagram?

I am relatively new to the enneagram and this book was recommended as a good resource. Wow, what a great book! I just finished it ansld and have already started it again. I also plan to buy a hard copy so that I can highlight and make notes. I don't love the reader as he is a little dramatic for my taste but still an awesome and worthy purchase.

Good enneagram insights

It goes deep into the 9 types without going too far down a rabbit hole. Lots of useful info, but the conclusion was difficult to understand and may need a relisten or read. Overall book structure of tables and footnotes can be confusing at times in the audio.

In-depth enneagram book

This book digs deeper and directs the reader to pursue greater spiritual growth. It was much to take in and I will probably buy the regular version so I can highlight.

Well Documented

Very well researched and developed. Pulls from many faith traditions. A bit hard to follow so we bought the book to get the charts and lists. Some of the stories are egoism in nature. Terrific narrator.

A mind opening read

I read this book on a recommendation. While I wasn't searching for a spiritual journey to embark upon, it found me. I am not a follower of any particular faith but I still found direction from this text. This was my first foray into enneagrams. I have determined my type and I know where my faults lie. However, I wish there was more coaching into how to get to the healthiest version of your type other than contemplative prayer.
