Mark Ritchie’s exceptional book, God in the Pits: the Enron-Jihad Edition takes two of the most traumatic events of this decade and uses them, along with Ritchie’s quest for truth to cross-examine the Christian worldview. A Readinglist for Politicalscience? That and more because this quest for truth circles the globe as Ritchie recounts his childhood as an expatriate in Afghanistan, teenage years in the volatile 60’s and 70’s and college experience as a "doubting Thomas" enrolled in seminary.
Skeptical of the fundamentalist perspective of Protestant Christianity, Ritchie examines the claims of Jesus from a variety of perspectives; a janitor, a trucker, a spouse, a father, and a former successful pit trader and founding partner of the highly respected Chicago Research and Trading Firm to name a few.
Ultimately, Ritchie's purpose for God in the Pits is "not to solve the problems in the church, or in Enron, or in Islam. Nor is it simply to belabor that old saw we know so well: the world’s a mess. My thesis is that we have consistently attempted to clean up the wrong mess (Ritchie, prologue)."
