#Review Borderline

Reflections on War, Sex, and Church
By Stan Goff
ISBN: 9780718894078

borderline“A health warning: this is not a book for the squeamish. Stan Goff is a former American soldier and Vietnam war veteran. He served in the airborne Rangers and Special Forces Groups. He is very frank about his experiences during this time, admitting to terrorizing and brutalizing the weak and poor, burning houses, killing livestock, maiming people and exploiting women for sex. He describes himself as a divorced alcoholic who left a damaged trail that involved the suffering of his own daughter, ‘avery young witness to this insanity’ (p. xvii). And he took a human life.”

Alan Billings, Theology, Vol. 119 No. 3, May/June 2016
