 This ebook argues that Christians have a stake within the sustainability and good fortune of middle cultural values of the West usually and the United States particularly. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, particularly, Pentecostal viewpoint. the amount proposes and develops a Pentecostal political theology that may be used to deal with and reframe Christian political identification within the United States. 
Studebaker asserts that American Christians are at present no longer competently engaged in fighting America’s decline or halting the shifts in its middle values. the matter, he indicates, is that American Christianity not just supplies little idea to the kingdom of the state past a handful of ethical concerns like abortion, yet its renowned political theologies lead Christians to think about themselves extra as extraterrestrial beings than as electorate. This publication posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology may  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 off with construction, proceeds via Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates within the new production 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.
