An uncommonly honest, heartbreaking and hilarious memoir that will have you putting the book down only to laugh out loud, For the Love of God! is a story of wavering faith, wavering love and a rock solid contractual commitment.
When Private Ortt, a Bible-thumping, over-zealous boy joins the Army, he’s systematically whisked through a rude awakening; to the reality of the United States Army. There he learns that his Christian girlfriend wants to convert to a form of Judaism and says that God wants her to be single. His sole hope is that he can hold on to her long enough to get home and show her that they were meant to be together, but he is stuck in the testosterone-drenched school of combat.
