This final chapter gives an overview of the book's discussions. The author establishes a hierarchical approach in answering whether there is more to reality in the world that science reveals or not. The author makes a final point regarding how belief is worth considering; he emphasizes C. S. Lewis's ‘sense of the fitness of things’ as support for this point. The author asserts how belief in such themes does not only involve judgement, but it also involves action. Believers, even if charged with irrationality, can now confidently say that human reason is not the setter of truth.

Keywords: C. S. Lewis; judgement; action; atheism; agnosticism; belief; reason
