#100 – The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective by Richard Rohr (My 100 Favorite Books)

A few weeks ago I was invited to share pictures of seven books on Facebook, with no comment.  I love reading and had trouble picking just seven favorite books.  So I decided to spend the summer sharing my 100 favorite books.  I tried to roughly put them in some order, so my all-time favorites will come last.  There will be books from a variety of genres.  Enjoy!

#100 – The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective by Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr is one of my favorite writers and I could have included any of these books on the list:

The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See

Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation

Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality

But I chose his book on the Enneagram.  I learned about the Enneagram a few years ago and began reading up on it.  It was Rohr’s book that made it the most clear to me, especially when he connected each personality type on the enneagram with a specific sin.  For me, this is when the Enneagram went from another useful personality profile to a tool for self-analysis and spiritual depth.  Since learning about the Enneagram, I’ve seen a few more recent books published with a Christian take on it.  I am sure they’re great, but they’d be hard-pressed to compete with Rohr.
