Political theology needs to provide an account of a political vocation.
Senior connects political deliberation to ethical judgment, explores use and end result of energy, analyzes political clash and pageant, and limns the ethics of negotiation and compromise. In mild of this richer figuring out of political vocation, Senior develops theological assets acceptable to a number of ecologies—ordinary electorate, political activists, and elected officials.
