9780802804792: Contemporary Literary Theory: A Christian Appraisal
From Library Journal:

This is a helpful introduction to major literary theories--from Marxism to deconstruction--written by respected Christian critics. Each essay follows a similar pattern of development: the first section describes the salient features of the particular theory (e.g., Marxism); the second section assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the theory; and the final section attempts to describe the usefulness of the critical approach for Christian criticism. Weaker essays (Ryken's afterword) tend toward dogmatism while stronger ones (Walhout's "Marxism") strive for judicious balance. Despite its uneven quality, this book will serve well both undergraduates and serious Christian readers who wish to know where their voices blend in the din and clatter of contemporary literary theory.
