Qualifying post-Westphalian sovereign statehood as a ‘power’ as argued for in Hendrik Berkhoff’s political theology, this ebook addresses the decades-long theological-spiritual debate among Christian realism and Christian pacifism in U.S. international coverage and international Christian circles. It techniques the controversy by way of delving into the pacifist Anabaptist political theology and delineates empirically how sovereign statehood in post-colonial Africa and Asia has fallen into the fingers of the satan devil, as a ‘fallen strength’ within the Foucaultian phrases of energy buildings, suggestions and episteme. whereas the booklet bargains intervention schemes and strategies, it holds that Christian statecraft is still the resource of desire to successfully tackle a few severe international concerns. through extension, the e-book is therefore a call for participation to ignite debates at the suitability of Christian statecraft and the nexus among spirituality and global politics, making it specially fascinating for students and scholars within the fields of overseas Politics, Politics of Asian and African States, Post-colonial experiences and Political Theology.
