Book Review: A Book Called YOU Author: Matthew Stephen Brown

How do you feel about yourself? There are probably some things you like, some things you hate, and some things you’ve never told anyone about. But do you know that Jesus wants you to find yourself? Your real self?

A Book Called YOU will help you learn about the person you were made to be and how a biblical view of self-discovery can improve every part of your life.

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, 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.
