Systematic Theology, including dogmatics or doctrinal theology, involves the study of symbolic or confessional books, moral philosophy and ethics, and apologetics (defending the faith) and polemics (attacking the positions held by others for doctrinal reasons). It also includes inter-church relations and ecumenical endeavors.
