The conclusion reiterates the book’s main findings, and schematically summarizes its proposed solution to the foundational question: How, within the parameters of Catholic dogmatic theology, it is possible for an atheist to be saved? Also briefly discussed is the bearing this subject has on two related topics outside the primary scope of the study: universal salvation, and the salvation of Catholics themselves. The conclusion also returns to the idea of ‘creative fidelity’, outlined in the introduction, as a model for Catholic theology.
