Cast in God's Image: Discover Your Personality Type Using the Enneagram and Kabbalah

by Rabbi Howard A. Addison. Jewish Lights Publishing, 2001.

Everyone strives to find answers to life's big questions: "Who am I?" "What am I here for?" 'Cast in God's Image' takes us one step closer to the answers we seek.

Rabbi Howard Addison explores the mystical traditions of the Enneagram and the Kabbalah, revealing extraordinary insight into personality types and divine purpose. By combining the Enneagram's rather negative view of the human condition with the uplifting views of the Kabbalah, the author lays the groundwork for people to delve more deeply into their own and others' personalities. Addison believes that our personalities offer clues to our divine spark and unique purpose. He also believes that, through the discovery and unification of these divine sparks, humankind can move closer to God.

In this book, congregational leaders will find insight into the human condition; by understanding their own personalities and the personalities of those around them, they can bring their congregations closer together. Used as a tool for understanding personality types, this book’s examination of personalities and their divine purpose will serve as a compelling resource for clergy and laity alike.
