These dialogues do not always work. I always felt that John Stott's foray with David Edwards in a similar book, Essentials, was the least valuable of his many books. However, on the whole John and Dwight avoid most of the pitfalls, not least the danger of agreeing on a lowest common denominator. Their differences remain quite openly and at the end the reader would have to choose which way he or she prefers to go.
