(In Reconstructing Literature in an Ideological Age, Danie...)
In Reconstructing Literature in an Ideological Age, Daniel E. Ritchie offers a "biblical poetics" as an alternative approach to ideological criticism, exploring how the Bible's own negotiations with language affect our view of literature, specifically with respect to older texts, gender issues, ethnic diversity, and the apparent arbitrariness of language itself.
(In The Fullness of Knowing, by placing the most promising...)
In The Fullness of Knowing, by placing the most promising postmodern insights in dialogue with eighteenth-century critics of the Enlightenment, Daniel Ritchie argues that we can begin to overcome post-Enlightenment fragmentation without abandoning either coherence (as many postmoderns have done) or the valid insights of modern and postmodern thought (as many traditionalists have done).
Ritchie earned his bachelor's degree from Amherst College in 1978. He then received master's degree from Rutgers University in 1980, as well as doctor's degree five years later.
Ritchie was appointed to the National Review as an editorial assistant in 1975. He served as a reporter at the Courier-Journal three years later. For a year from 1978, he held the same position at the organization Ritchie Daily Enterprise.

Currently, Ritchie is a Professor of English and Journalism at the College of Arts and Sciences. He has led seven study-abroad courses, including five of Bethel's "England Term" semesters. In 2018, he published articles in "Christianity and Literature" (on Milton's "Paradise Lost") and "National Affairs" (on conflicting visions of how to fashion free people). He is also a contributor of articles to periodicals, including the Modern Age, the Christian Century, the Eternity, the Renascence, the Explicator and the Christianity and Literature.
