Grace represents a peculiar economy that seems antithetical to our unusual perceptions of economy. This strange economy of gift can influence and change how we engage familiar expressions of economy, such as reciprocation, contract, money and insurance. In the logic of Christian faith’s peculiar economy, reality is ultimately otherwise than variegated speculation about human life within economies of human desire, possession and economic calculations of social interaction. This logic is most apparent in how we value what we value.
