This booklet posits that the proposed Pentecostal political theology might  help American Christians view themselves as electorate and higher realize their stake within the renewal in their country. the root of this proposed political theology is a pneumatological narrative of renewal—a biblical narrative of the Spirit that starts off with production, proceeds via Incarnation and Pentecost, and culminates within the new production and eternal nation of God.
