The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that can be a valuable tool for spiritual growth. Perhaps you've heard about it, or have used it in your own journey of self-discovery.
I first came across the Enneagram about 15 years ago, and have continued to find so much to learn from it (in case you're wondering, I'm a type 1 with a 2 wing). It has been a source of wisdom for me in my relationships, my sense of self, and my relationship with God. If you haven't yet discovered the Enneagram, I encourage you to jump in! You can begin with a good book (which I will share about below), or explore online at The Enneagram Institute.
Because of my ongoing work in the Enneagram, both personally and with others as a spiritual director, I've read many books on the subject. There are a lot out there, especially as more people discover the Enneagram and interest in it has grown.
A common Enneagram question I hear is, "I want to learn more, but where do I begin?" In response, I often find myself recommending the same books over and over again, so I decided to put together a list of my favorites. These are all books I've read and referenced multiple times. I actually wanted to round out the list with a fifth book, but nothing else quite made the cut. These four books are my go-tos.
Here is the short list of Enneagram books I recommend (click on the book or title for affiliate links):

I, too, absolutely loved the Sacred Enneagram by Chris Heuertz. Another book that I enjoyed was Enneagram Spirituality: from compulsion to contemplation by Suzanne Zuercher. There are definitely some great books out there.
