What Is the Enneagram?
Plenty of people have heard about the Enneagram. It’s a very popular personality typing tool. Many have taken a test to find out their Enneatype, read a book, listened to a podcast, or perhaps all of the above.

With that, not too long ago, I picked up John Mark Comer’s recent book Live No Lies. He also has a podcast connected to the book as well.
