This chapter first sets out the book's two guiding questions. First, it contemplates the situation theology would face in the present, given the hypothesis of the loss of nature. Would the decline of nature lead to a diagnosis of ill health for Christian theology, a “new condition”? Second, it considers different ways forward for theology. Would the end of nature entail new limitations placed on Christian theological ethics, a new boundary “condition” that cannot be escaped? The chapter then identifies ways of moving forward into a future Christian theological ethics under the condition of being “without nature.” An overview of the five parts of the book is presented.
