A Spiritual Economy

Full Product Description

The exchange of gifts is a fundamental part of society and a foundational element in Greco-Roman religions. Combining theories of gift exchange, both modern and Greco-Roman, Thomas Blanton reveals how religious discourse-in the guise of "spiritual gifts" believed to come from Israel's god-is instrumental in the formation of sociopolitical hierarchies and the assignment of honor and prestige. Blanton uses an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates religion, classics, sociology, and anthropology to investigate the economy of gift exchange shown in Paul's letters.

A Spiritual Economy by Thomas R. Blanton was published by Yale University Press in January 2017. The ISBN for A Spiritual Economy is 9780300220407.
