This chapter presents a fragmentary vignette of contemporary conversation in American Christian theological culture. The figures discussed here represent three rather different contemporary possibilities of how a twenty-first-century postmodern Christian faith might look. What unites all three is a rejection of the simplistic oppositions between faith and doubt, and between religion and the secular. They all take religion quite seriously: Jürgen Moltmann and Raimon Panikkar are prominent Christian theologians; Panikkar was a Roman Catholic priest; John Caputo is an American philosopher and theologian whose work deconstructs the boundaries between philosophy and theology. They illustrate some of the requirements that religious faith must embrace if it is to be genuinely sustainable in today's world and not languish as a nostalgic relic that stubbornly relies on certitude.

Keywords:   twenty-first-century, postmodern Christian faith, Jürgen Moltmann, Raimon Panikkar, John Caputo, religious faith
