Qualifying post-Westphalian sovereign statehood as a ‘power’ as argued for in Hendrik Berkhoff’s political theology, this publication addresses the decades-long theological-spiritual debate among Christian realism and Christian pacifism in U.S. overseas coverage and international Christian circles. It techniques the controversy by means 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 strength buildings, options and episteme. whereas the ebook deals intervention schemes and techniques, it holds that Christian statecraft is still the resource of wish to successfully deal with a few critical worldwide concerns. via extension, the ebook is hence a call for participation to ignite debates at the suitability of Christian statecraft and the nexus among spirituality and international politics, making it specially fascinating for students and scholars within the fields of overseas Politics, Politics of Asian and African States, Post-colonial reports and Political Theology.
