About the Book

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.

Book Synopsis

Are you interested in the Enneagram, but want to explore your personality more fully than a single number result? Discover how the Enneagram can be paired with the power of the gospel in this revolutionary and transformative guide for Enneagram beginners and experts alike.

We are all made up of parts. Have you ever said, "Part of me wants to go to the party, but part of me wants to stay home"? We already speak in these terms without realizing it. 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. After discovering your Enneagram Internal Profile (EIP), 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. Filled with charts, diagrams, and unique insights, you will:

  • Explore the driving force behind your unhealthy thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Learn how to lead yourself out of unhealthy patterns and get real help
  • Experience deeper understanding, confidence, and peace in your relationships with God, yourself, and others
  • Discover why the Enneagram on its own is not enough and how the gospel changes everything

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

Christ-centered self-awareness, not self-help

KB Shank - 1 year ago
More Than Your Number is one of the most grounded, helpful Enneagram books I’ve found. It’s premise centers on being aware of ourselves with the goal of becoming more like the person God created us to be. This is not a book for those who want to quickly “fix” themselves or others. It’s helping us understand how we fit into something bigger and greater than our personal capabilities. This is Christ-centered self-awareness, not self-help. There is a big, meaningful difference. Both new and experienced Enneagram students can learn from this book. The insight shared serves as a helpful reminder and stimulus for reflection, no matter how much you already know.

Awesome Christ-centered Enneagram resource!

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
CalleyW - 1 year ago
As a Christian Enneagram Coach, this book is a phenomenal resource to me! I'm already using this Enneagram Internal Profile language and construct within my practice and it is helping my clients grasp a more in depth and wider understanding of themselves. This book, More Than Your Number, breaks down the beauty of the gospel from Genesis to the Ascension of Jesus while providing a road map to growth by the Spirit of God through the helpful use of the tool of the Enneagram. You will discover in these pages that God deposited divine and eternal longings into your heart with the promise of fully satisfying them! Beth and Jeff offer vulnerability in these pages, they unapologetically profess the name of Jesus and His redemption, and teach us how to bring all of our parts to Him to let Him be the one that satisfies the very longings He deposited within us. More Than Your Number is more than just a good read, it is a profound resource for growth! It is filled with incredible content for each Type. Beth and Jeff break down what it looks like for each Type to operate as the Beloved Child and Wounded Child. But they take it even further and give specifics on what it looks like to have your connecting parts operating under the leadership of each child. You don't need to be an Enneagram expert to read this book. In fact, More Than Your Number lays out the principles of the powerful tool of the Enneagram in a way that anyone could grasp and begin their own journey toward self-awareness. But what I love the most is that Jesus is always at the center of the McCord's teachings. It is obvious that they have decided that Jesus is not a problem, but rather, He is the answer.

Helpful transformational use of the enneagram!

Anna - 1 year ago
More than your number is an excellent resource for taking the enneagram beyond just an interesting idea and into deeper life change. Through a comprehensive overview of the enneagram as well as detailed descriptions of each type and how our internal world moves through our different parts, we have language to help us become “AWARE” of, and then gently guide ourselves through to an aligned place of belovedness. This is an important book within the enneagram community because it helped me to uncover a deeper process going on inside Me, one that goes beyond information. It offers me a path and an invitation to name my parts, accept them and guide them. If you’re a seasoned enneagram person you can probably skim parts of the beginning as it gets a bit long but it is a book I know I will return to consistently as I begin to use this process of self discovery, as well as a helpful tool for my enneagram coaching business.

Great Enneagram Application

5 out of 5 stars

Philly Mom - 1 year ago
I love this book. It takes basic Enneagram knowledge and insights to an entirely new level. Understanding all the complexities of the Enneagram can be very overwhelming and confusing but Beth and Jeff do a great job of explaining applications to those completely new to the concept or more seasoned Enneagram enthusiasts. The insights into various personalities from the Enneagram tool has always been interesting to me, but the way that they provide very practical and tangible applications of the tool is worth the price of admission. They not only provide understanding to various components to your personality, but also they detail how to make changes to more unhealthy responses of our personality so that we can live in a healthier way. I highly recommend More than Your Number and am so grateful to the authors for writing it!

Great beginning stepping stone for the Enneagram

ramandamatteson - 1 year ago
I have been following Beth (yourenneagramcoach) for a few years now and have learned so much from her on something that has Changed my life for the better. The tool of the Enneagram is something that has been so very helpful to my growth and healing in my life. What I appreciate the most about Beth and Jeff's perspective of the enneagram is that they focus highly on the way the Gospel can be the main focus and the Enneagram the sidekick. That is why I will continue to follow them and their work over some others. The Gospel will always be #1 in my life. When I started this book it felt a bit slow. (That's why it is a 4 star for me) I do typically love extra stories from the writers that give us more detail on their lives and their history. I like details. I was in this case a lot more "ready" for what this book was about and got a bit bored waiting for the book to give me what I was expecting in the title. For a beginner that doesn't know much about the enneagram the speed of this book may have been more fitting. But for someone who has done more work learning about it over some time, they may feel more like I did. Part 3 is where I wanted to skip to (maybe I just should have) where they explained the EIP (Enneagram Internal Profiles). They do a great job laying out the differences in healthy or unhealth. I do like that they stay true to the fact that they do want to encourage us to let God be the one to transform us. I would recommend this book to a friend. Especially one that hasn't done much Enneagram work. Perfect for a beginner, but there is still great things for a more "seasoned" Enneagram fan, I'd just give the disclaimer that they may want to jump ahead. When I am recommending anything Enneagram to a friend this book will be higher on my list because of the Gospel Focus. I was happy to receive an advanced copy through NetGalley and was asked to give my honest feedback.
