Reviews

"Cron and Stabile walk through the Enneagram's nine different personality types and their distinct ways of seeing the world, showing how each one has a potentially infinite number of expressions, strengths, and weaknesses. Cron describes his own Enneagram experience as a feeling of waking up after having been asleep for a long time. He explains that in catching a glimpse of the person he was created to be, he began to see himself with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees him, and to sense the immediacy of God's grace. 'In the spiritual life that's no small thing, ' he writes."--Foreword Reviews, Fall 2016
"An aid to those seeking to identify personality types, with a little bit of spirituality on the side."--Sandra Colllins, Library Journal, October 1, 2016
"Cron brings his witty, energetic voice to this collaboration with Stabile, a retreat director and expert on the Enneagram--a system of personality typology with roots in Christian and Islamic mysticism. The beauty of the Enneagram is its charity: the system clearly names the flaws as well as the virtues of each personality type. The Enneagram also counsels humility and acknowledges its own limits ('[The Enneagram] is not infallible or inerrant, ' writes Cron and Stabile)--a welcome modesty in religious understanding today."--Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW, August 8, 2016
