 This e-book argues that Christians have a stake within the sustainability and luck of middle cultural values of the West quite often and the USA specifically. Steven M. Studebaker considers Western and American decline from a theological and, in particular, 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 the moment no longer correctly engaged in fighting America’s decline or halting the shifts in its middle values. the matter, he indicates, is that American Christianity not just offers little proposal to the nation of the country past a handful of ethical concerns like abortion, yet its well known political theologies lead Christians to think about themselves extra as extraterrestrial beings than as voters. This e-book posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology could  help American Christians view themselves as voters 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 with construction, proceeds via Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates within the new construction and eternal state 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.
