By Steven M. Studebaker

 This e-book argues that Christians have a stake within the sustainability and luck of center cultural values of the West commonly and the United States particularly. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, particularly, Pentecostal standpoint. the quantity proposes and develops a Pentecostal political theology that may be used to deal with and reframe Christian political id within the United States. 
Studebaker asserts that American Christians are at the moment no longer appropriately engaged in combating America’s decline or halting the shifts in its center values. the matter, he indicates, is that American Christianity not just supplies little notion to the country of the state past a handful of ethical concerns like abortion, yet its well known political theologies lead Christians to consider themselves extra as extraterrestrial beings than as electorate. This publication posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology may  help American Christians view themselves as electorate and higher realize their stake within the renewal in their country. the root of this proposed political theology is a pneumatological narrative of renewal—a biblical narrative of the Spirit that starts off with construction, proceeds via Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates within the new production and eternal nation of God. This narrative offers the basis for a political theology that speaks to the problems of Christian political id and encourages Christian political participation.
