Self to Lose, Self to Find: Using the Enneagram to Uncover Your True, God-Gifted Self examines the invitation of Jesus to lose yourself in order to find your true self, and presents the personality system known as the Enneagram within a Biblical framework.

Self to Lose, Self to Find features:

  • a scriptural foundation for how the Enneagram personality tool can lead to greater freedom in one’s spiritual, emotional, and relational life
  • an easy-to-follow description of the system and the nine personality types
  • prayers for each Enneagram type
  • a practical process to experience more freedom called OWN-UP

“This is a rare find! Marilyn Vancil weaves three threads — the biblical story, the Enneagram wisdom, and real-life experiences ­­­­­­— into this compelling and essential resource for those who long for a more free and fruitful life. This grounded, hands-on offering is a rare gift indeed!”
