Is the Gift Economy Anti-justice‪?‬ The Whole Person Revolution

    • Society & Culture

The gift logic at its purest sounds like the height of virtue: self-sacrificing, open-handed, generous, gentle. But how does it square with the demands of justice? Can they co-exist in the same moral galaxy? This week’s episode wrestles with these questions, and our interlocutors come from inside the Comment team: associate editor Heidi Deddens and senior editor Brian Dijkema. Two different lenses, one faith. Two distinct generational outlooks, a shared cultural context. Are justice and the gift logic actually at odds, or are they simply in need of some re-encountering? Tune in to find out.
