Qualifying post-Westphalian sovereign statehood as a ‘power’ as argued for in Hendrik Berkhoff’s political theology, this booklet addresses the decades-long theological-spiritual debate among Christian realism and Christian pacifism in U.S. overseas coverage and international Christian circles. It methods the talk via delving into the pacifist Anabaptist political theology and delineates empirically how sovereign statehood in post-colonial Africa and Asia has fallen into the palms of the satan devil, as a ‘fallen strength’ within the Foucaultian phrases of strength constructions, ideas and episteme. whereas the e-book bargains intervention schemes and suggestions, it holds that Christian statecraft continues to be the resource of desire to successfully deal with a few critical international concerns. by way of extension, the publication is therefore 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 foreign Politics, Politics of Asian and African States, Post-colonial stories and Political Theology.
