As well as religious thrillers you might want to consider a very select/small genre: Catholic westerns. As in these works by Thomas Eidson:
St Agnes Stand
The Last Ride
Hannah's Gift
All God's Children
Souls of Angels

The late Richard Ben Sapir made several cracking contributions. You'll need to get on Abebooks.com or trawl in second-hand book stores:
The Far Arena - not strictly a religious thriller, but one of the central characters is a nun
The Body -Oops! Did the Resurrection not happen then?
Quest - It's a Grail thing. Out baddies No Country For Old Men

The Genesis Secret by Tom Knox. I loved the Shardlake books too and I really enjoyed The Name Of The Rose by Umberto Eco.

Try 'Crown of Thorns-The race to clone Jesus Christ'. Was a good mix of religion, thriller and medical stuff.

The Psalter by Galen Watson (me). Brand new. It's an historical thriller about a medieval religious forgery that changed the world--forever.

This isn't a standard thriller, though it has thriller elements. It's about the consequences of a discovery of a forgotten gospel and I think it's a good undemanding read, not least for some hilarious & spot-on parodies of amazon reviews: The Fire Gospel (Myths)

"Still, he puts together some interesting concepts"

To 'put together' suggests coming up with something yourself.

Not exactly Brown's forte either.

Thank for reminding me about John Case (isn't John Case the pseudonym for husband and wife team?), I also read Eighth Day, First Horseman and Trance State by the same author. When Da Vinci Code appeared it was treated as if DB had invented this kind of thriller but it had been done before, the books just didn't get the hype to propel them to stardom.

I would suggest you try "Crown of Thorns : A Genetic Conspiracy Thriller". I really liked it and enjoyed it. I read it awhile ago and really loved it! Probably not everyones cup of tea as it deals with maybe a sensitive topic for some...a student at Uni clones Jesus Christ...and the CIA and MI5 try to prevent him and copy what he has done so that they also have a 'Jesus clone'...Would suggest you read any reviews to see what others think too before buying!

Lex Allen says:
LOL...well, I've read that complaint, too, Ryan. Still, he puts together some interesting concepts - okay some large doses of 'deus ex machina', as well; however, for strictly entertainment purposes, I've enjoyed his works.

Or due to his inability to write even faintly competent prose.

Just a suggestion.

I'm a big fan of religious thrillers...;o). I can't figure out why so many people beat up on Dan Brown. Envy, perhaps? James Rollins is another great writer that combines that genre with dashes of quantum physics and tablespoons full of paranormal and supernatural. Those kinds of stories are especially attractive to me...;o)

The Power and the Glory - Graham Greene.

UK crime thriller called THE DECALOGUE (by Mark Pettinger) uses the Ten Commandments as a plot - its a bit tenuous to your 'religion and religious conspiracy'; but give it a go
