[personal profile] zingerella: "Exchange between humans and gods: In the later version of Stark’s theory, religious life is analyzed in terms of the conditions influencing the nature of the exchanges envisioned between humans and gods in terms of the relative rewards and costs of the different kinds of transactions imagined."
[personal profile] commodorified: I seem to recall this. Rodney Stark, as in Stark and Bainbridge? Or as we used to oh-so-sensitively refer to them, Stark and Raving?[1]
[personal profile] zingerella: Stark, Rodney, The Sociology of Religion. It's from the glossary to the textbook I'm proofreading.

[personal profile] commodorified: Alternately, awesome prompt for Tony Stark/Thor.
[personal profile] zingerella: That was kind of where my mind went.

[1] The Future of Religion: Secularization, Revival, and Cult Formation is... a very ODD book.
