Book Synopsis

Have you wanted to dive deeper into the Enneagram but resisted because you don't want to be labeled? Or do you ever wonder, Why does this part of me still get so easily stuck? What's next? Discover a revolutionary and transformative approach to the Enneagram in this thoughtful, explorative guide to understanding all the remarkably unique ways you reflect the image of God . . . because you are more than your number.

More Than Your Number takes a deeper dive into the world of the Enneagram by moving past the quickly assigned and sometimes stereotypical Enneagram Types to consider and engage your unique, multidimensional personality that makes you so much more complex than just a number.

Explore the Enneagram beyond the surface in a thought-provoking journey to discover your previously unexplored Enneagram Internal Profile (EIP). By clearly identifying five unique parts--such as "family members" within your internal world--you'll be able to not only name what has affected you your entire life, whether positively or negatively, but also understand and apply the truth of how God intends to redeem and use all of you, not just parts of you.

Through the EIP, Enneagram coaches Beth and Jeff McCord provide a simple, tested, personal strategy to understand and welcome these parts through God's grace, equipping you to better lead and shepherd your internal interests. You can become AWARE of these parts by:

  • awakening to our thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and inclinations;
  • welcoming these experiences without judgment;
  • asking the Holy Spirit for guidance;
  • receiving what is true; and
  • engaging with God, yourself, and our relationships in a new way.

Discover your real identity in Christ, readjusting your internal world toward a healthier path for your unique personality type.
