 This e-book argues that Christians have a stake within the sustainability and good fortune of center cultural values of the West in most cases and the USA specifically. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, particularly, Pentecostal point of view. the quantity 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 adequately engaged in fighting America’s decline or halting the shifts in its center values. the matter, he indicates, is that American Christianity not just supplies little idea to the nation of the state past a handful of ethical matters like abortion, yet its well known political theologies lead Christians to consider themselves extra as extraterrestrial beings than as electorate. This e-book 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 state. 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 nation of God. This narrative presents the basis for a political theology that speaks to the problems of Christian political id and encourages Christian political participation.
