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 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 palms of the satan devil, as a ‘fallen energy’ within the Foucaultian phrases of strength constructions, concepts and episteme. whereas the booklet bargains intervention schemes and techniques, it holds that Christian statecraft is still the resource of desire to successfully deal with a couple of critical international concerns. via extension, the e-book is hence a call for participation to ignite debates at the suitability of Christian statecraft and the nexus among spirituality and global politics, making it in particular fascinating for students and scholars within the fields of foreign Politics, Politics of Asian and African States, Post-colonial experiences and Political Theology.
