IVP signs Christopher L. Heuertz as Enneagram book series editor, as Enneagram Today website launches
WESTMONT, IL—Christopher L. Heuertz has signed a contract with InterVarsity Press to serve as the series editor for Enneagram Daily Reflections, which will provide daily readings for those who want to learn more about the Enneagram, a personality typing system. The series is scheduled to release in October 2020.
“What an honor to be included in this much-needed devotional series. With the rapidly growing body of Enneagram literature, type-specific contributions that are reflective and rooted in spiritual experiences are a welcome addition,” said Heuertz.
The Enneagram Daily Reflections series will build on current interest in the Enneagram and add new voices and perspectives to an already rich conversation about each personality type expressed through the Enneagram. The complete series will have nine volumes, one volume for each Enneagram number. Each volume will be written by a different Christian author, representing their own personality type and providing unique and personal reflections on daily living within the context of that number. The volumes will include Forty Days on Being a One by Juanita Rasmus, Forty Days on Being a Two by Hunter Mobley, Forty Days on Being a Three by Sean Palmer, and Forty Days on Being a Nine by Marlena Graves.
Cindy Bunch, associate publisher and director of editorial at IVP, said, “This is a very significant book project, and we are so pleased to have Chris’s expertise and perspective to guide us through this series. It will give readers an opportunity to view the Enneagram through fresh eyes and go deeper into their own number. These daily volumes will reflect the spiritual path of growth that Enneagram wisdom offers.”
Heuertz previously authored The Sacred Enneagram: Finding Your Unique Path to Spiritual Growth and currently serves as an International Enneagram Association Accredited Professional. He is also founding partner of Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism. Known as an authority on the Enneagram, Heuertz recently contributed a feature article to IVP’s newly launched Enneagram Today website, //enneagramtoday.com.
Enneagram Today launched on October 16, 2019, and is intended to be a resource for all Enneagram enthusiasts. For beginners and experts across the full faith spectrum, Enneagram Today sets out to provide rich, trusted content from a Christian perspective and to open up a space for thoughtful teaching and learning.

Lorraine Caulton, IVP’s director of creative and customer engagement, said, “As a publisher that has and continues to release resources like the forthcoming Enneagram Daily Reflections series, we saw an opportunity to fill a void online around this topic. Curating content from many different authorities on the subject and providing it all in one central place with this website, we believe we are meeting an important need.”
