Book Review: Self-Actualization and the Radical Gospel

Self-Actualization and the Radical Gospel, by Louis Roy

I started reading this book thinking that it was going to be well...better than it was.  Ok, that's not fair.  It's not that it was bad.  Because I think it's a valid question - when we're talking "self-actualization" (reaching our full potential, becoming who we truly are, etc), how are we supposed to balance that with giving yourself up for the sake of the Kingdom?  Or, in other words, how do we sacrifice everything, take up our cross and follow Him, and not be completely miserable? 

The upshot, as I understood it, was basically that when you're doing what God has called you to do - and it's always a radical call - you'll be self-actualizing.
