Author A. J. Sherrill still remembers the moment when his life was forever changed by a word he didn't even understand at the time: Enneagram. A personality theory that includes nine different "types," the Enneagram has become a popular tool for self-awareness and improvement. But in this book, Sherrill goes deeper, exploring with Christians how the Enneagram can be a pathway to profound spiritual transformation. Sherrill reveals the Enneagram as a tool to unlock new ways of viewing identity, personality, discipleship, spiritual practices, evangelism, and the Bible. Using this fresh approach, Sherrill shows how our true identity is that of a beloved child of God. Recognizing that, we can move confidently into the world expressing this identity through our unique personality. Through Sherrill's detailed spiritual exploration of each type, readers will emerge viewing the Enneagram as a precious gift to following Jesus more closely. Foreword by Chuck DeGroat.

A lot, actually. In fact, more than you can imagine. WANT TO KNOW YOUR ENNEAGRAM TYPE? Being able to understand the basic motivations of different personality types can help you communicate with and relate to others. Everyone has innate fears and desires; we may seem different on the surface, but in reality, we are all seeking similar things: connection, understanding, support, and acceptance. When you know a bit about what makes people tick, it can help you relate to and empathize with them. The Nine Enneagram personality types describe individual behavior tendencies, motivations, and desires more deeply and more specifically than other personality frameworks. While each type has distinct differences, there are even more variations within each of them with secondary types (known as "wings"), stress levels, and different levels of maturity. For this reason, the Enneagram is a helpful tool for personal development, counseling, and building your most important relationships. What are you waiting for?

Being with God

All fruitful doing must begin with being. For many Christians, it's easy to be swept up into the fast pace of modern life, desiring to do much for God. But we struggle to slow down and be with God. According to pastor, Enneagram teacher, and author AJ Sherrill, being with God is what empowers doing for God. Sherrill shares his own journey from "busy" Christianity to the ancient paths of contemplative practices. He equips readers to integrate rhythms of stillness, silence, and solitude, offering step-by-step guidance and examples of finding solitude both personally and on retreats. Sherrill warns that making these changes appears absurd in a society where time is money, productivity is central, and hurry is a way of life. He guides readers gently through the beginning and often confusing stages of contemplative practice. Citing timely insights from the world of neurology and mental health, he shows that solitude is crucial not only for Christian growth but also for holistic flourishing. Foreword by Rich Villodas. Readers will emerge, centered in Christ, well on their way to this goal: slow down, pay attention, be still, and be loved.

Exploring the intersection of personality and spiritual practice, this book aims to consider how human uniqueness should pair with specific practices, biblical narratives and seasons in the Church calendar. Far too often spiritual formation in the Christian faith is over-simplified or omitted altogether. The Enneagram reveals an individuals areas of great strength and also humbling weakness. This book is one of the few resources on personality theory that asks the question: NOW WHAT? The first half of "Enneagram and the Way of Jesus" provides a brief analysis about the present crisis of discipleship, the origins of the Enneagram, and concise descriptions of each of the nine types for the purpose of assessment. The second half leads the reader to consider several spiritual practices based on personality--practices that both pair well and also practices that challenge the individual toward transformation. The reader will then discover biblical narratives and seasons the Church calendar where s/he should pay most attention based on type.

*This WORKBOOK is exclusively designed as a companion guide for the live workshop* The Enneagram is an ancient tool that helps describe your personality in terms of who you are and how you relate to God, to others, and to yourself. It has been the single-most transformational tool for personal growth and spiritual formation in my life. The Enneagram is different from other typology systems in that it exposes the ways in which we have been uniquely wounded by sin and are motivated by shame, fear, and anger, which all handicap our capacity for trust and deep relationship. Better understanding our core motives, fears and sin strategies allows for tremendous spiritual growth and greater freedom from the unhealthy patterns that keep us stuck. In the live workshop you'll learn about:* the 3 triads* the 9 main Enneagram types* wings, directions of integration and disintegration* a brief overview of the 27 subtypes* the lie each type has believed and the truth they need to hear Join me as we explore this fantastic tool through the lens of the Gospel, and grow in compassion and self-awareness.

In Till We Are Fully Formed, the current spiritual formation approaches in the English-speaking Presbyterian Churches in Malaysia are examined. Its findings may have relevance to contemporary churches in general. Christian spiritual formation is the intentional and ongoing process of inner transformation to become like Jesus Christ, become a people of God, and become God's agents for his redemptive purposes. Christian spiritual formation as a process may be sensitive to the context of the Christian faith communities in which it occurs. It takes effect in the individual via a spiritually nurturing community, and corporately as the community interacts with the dominant culture. A holistic approach to Christian spiritual formation--which comprises the formative strands of person-in-formation, persons-in-community formation and persons-in-mission formation in a Christian growth paradigm--is proposed.

Sheltering Mercy

Sheltering Mercy

—AJ Sherrill, author of Being with God and The Enneagram for Spiritual Formation “Praying the Psalms is de facto praying in technicolor. Smith and Wilt's Psalm-based book of prayers, Sheltering Mercy, enables us to pray them in 3D.

Sheltering Mercy helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms--through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns--as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. While each prayer corresponds to a particular psalm and touches on its themes and ideas, it is not a new translation of the Psalms or an attempt to modernize or contextualize their content or language. Rather, the prayers are responses to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life. This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and beautiful hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
