Abstract "Religious faith is based on a different economic logic. It is a double space-economy: the worldly space of human life and God's space of heaven, the last one as a space for a second-life of the soul. Religious men have to reflect their lifes in behalf of their placement in heaven. But it is no decision of man to enter heaven after death, it belongs to God's grace. So we cannot easily transform this economy of religion into modern economics. It is a different gift-economy, but without any mode of reciprocity." (author's abstract)
