Hi,

I’m looking for secular books, articles, or even studies? ect. about the way that postmodernism has affected and possibly supported faith based belief systems. 

You ladies and gents wouldn’t know of any would you?

Thanks.

Hmm, well.
There’s a lot of stuff on postmodern theology, but I think most of it is written as a reinterpretation of religion through a postmodern lens, or alternatively, a religious perspective of postmodernism. 

It seems harder to find a skeptical analysis of the way that postmodern philosophy has affected religions and people’s propensity to have faith. 

The closest thing I’ve been able to find is this:

Augustine and Postmodern Thought: A New Alliance against Modernity? (Bibliotheca Ephemeridum Theologicarum Lovaniensium)
http://www.amazon.com/Augustine-Postmodern-Thought-Theologicarum-Lovaniensium/dp/904292120X

This is an interesting book by a preacher who uses post-modernism as a means of luring in nonbelievers.
Preaching After God: Derrida, Caputo, and the Language of Postmodern Homiletics
http://www.amazon.com/Preaching-After-God-Postmodern-Homiletics/dp/1610974980/ref=la_B002V6NC4W_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1363290892&sr=1-2

There is also
Postmodernism, Reason and Religion
http://www.amazon.com/Postmodernism-Reason-Religion-Ernest-Gellner/dp/041508024X

But that doesn’t seem to go into the effects in any depth.

The biggest name in postmodern theology seems to be John Caputo.
