Welcome to the Blog Tour for A Book Called You by Matthew Stephen Brown, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: A Book Called You
Author: Matthew Stephen Brown
Publisher: W Publishing / Thomas Nelson
Release Date: October 5, 2021
Genre: Christian Growth / Enneagram
A biblically grounded Enneagram book that looks at the Enneagram numbers of people in the Bible so readers can discover more about themselves and gain specific wisdom about how and why they are uniquely made.
Who am I? Everyone asks that question, no matter their age or status in life. If we truly are supposed to be real with others, shouldn’t that start with learning how to be real with ourselves? We think so. But we have to be willing to look inside and ask, “Okay, God, who am I? What is it that I don’t see about myself that you see?” A Book Called YOU will help us learn about who we are as individuals and how a biblical view of self-discovery can improve every part of our lives.
Based on his widely successful teaching series “A Series Called You” and his personal experience using the Enneagram personality assessment tool in his marriage and other personal relationships, pastor Matt Brown offers a groundbreaking, entertaining, and heartfelt guide that highlights biblical truths alongside the Enneagram to help us better understand ourselves and how we relate to the people around us.
IN MY OPINION
The enneagram. It’s been the personality popular personality test the past several years. I’ve taken the test a few times and seem to come up with a different number (one of three so at least that’s consistent) every time. What I most appreciated in A Book Called You by Matthew Stephen Brown is that I could clearly see myself in one of the numbers because the author broke it down so well—from both the strengths and the weaknesses sides.
In this book, Brown first introduces readers to the enneagram. Then he goes through each of the numbers. He gives an example of a person or character from the Bible, the strengths of that number, he weaknesses, and how to live with and love that person. He even tells readers what numbers he and his wife and includes some personal anecdotes.
After reading this book, it became clear which number I am in the explanations of strengths and weaknesses. It also gave me insight and understanding into how to appreciate the differences in each of us. In His perfect plan, God made us unique, but sometimes that means we don’t always see eye-to-eye with those who are different than us. A Book Called You helped me celebrate our individuality from a Biblical perspective.
