By Steven M. Studebaker

 This ebook argues that Christians have a stake within the sustainability and good fortune of center cultural values of the West quite often and the US particularly. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, in particular, Pentecostal viewpoint. the quantity proposes and develops a Pentecostal political theology that may be used to handle and reframe Christian political identification within the United States. 
Studebaker asserts that American Christians are at the moment no longer thoroughly engaged in fighting America’s decline or halting the shifts in its center values. the matter, he indicates, is that American Christianity not just provides little concept to the country of the state past a handful of ethical matters like abortion, yet its well known political theologies lead Christians to think about themselves extra as extraterrestrial beings than as voters. This publication posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology might  help American Christians view themselves as voters and higher realize their stake within the renewal in their country. the basis of this proposed political theology is a pneumatological narrative of renewal—a biblical narrative of the Spirit that starts with construction, proceeds via Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates within the new construction and eternal country of God. This narrative offers the root for a political theology that speaks to the problems of Christian political identification and encourages Christian political participation.
