IVP signs Suzanne Stabile as Enneagram Daily Reflections series editor
WESTMONT, IL—Suzanne Stabile has signed a contract with InterVarsity Press to serve as the series editor for Enneagram Daily Reflections that will provide daily readings for those who want to learn more about the Enneagram, a personality typing system. The first two books in the series on the Enneagram numbers two and three are scheduled to release on October 6, 2020.
Suzanne Stabile is the author of The Path Between Us and coauthor, with Ian Morgan Cron, of the bestseller The Road Back to You. She is also the creator and host of The Enneagram Journey podcast. As an internationally recognized Enneagram Master, Stabile has conducted more than five hundred Enneagram workshops over the past twenty-seven years. Along with her husband, Rev. Joseph Stabile, she is cofounder of Life in the Trinity Ministry, a nonprofit, nondenominational ministry committed to the spiritual growth and formation of adults.
“I am so pleased to have Suzanne Stabile onboard as series editor,” said Cindy Bunch, associate publisher and director of editorial at IVP. “Suzanne has been offering Enneagram training for the past twenty-five years and understands the intricacies of each number. Her wise and compassionate approach to the Enneagram will offer a grounding context for the series.”
The Enneagram Daily Reflections series will build on the 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, Juanita Campbell Rasmus (Spring 2021)
- Forty Days on Being a Two, Hunter Mobley (October 6, 2020)
- Forty Days on Being a Three, Sean Palmer (October 6, 2020)
- Forty Days on Being a Four, Christine Yi Suh (Fall 2021)
- Forty Days on Being a Five, Morgan Harper Nichols (Spring 2021)
- Forty Days on Being a Six, Tara Beth Leach (Fall 2021)
- Forty Days on Being a Seven, Gideon Yee Shun Tsang (Winter 2021)
- Forty Days on Being an Eight, Sandra Maria Van Opstal (Fall 2021)
- Forty Days on Being a Nine, Marlena Graves (Winter 2021)
Stabile said, “The authors in this series write from experiences that reflect racial and cultural difference, and they have been influenced by different faith beliefs. In working with spiritual directors, therapists, and pastors they identified many of their own habits and fears, behaviors and motivations, gifts and challenges. And they courageously talked with those who are close to them about how they are seen and experienced by others.
“From a place of vulnerability and generosity they each invite us to walk with them for forty days on their journeys toward transformation. It is our hope that you will not limit your reading to only your number. Read about your spouse or a friend. Consider reading about the type you suspect represents your parents or your siblings. You might even want to read about someone you have little affection for but are willing to try to understand. Keeping in mind that the Enneagram is ancient wisdom and some say it is always helpful.”
