I may as well kick things off quickly....
I think this is a good sutta to encourage the reader to take on board and accept (at least as a "working hypothesis" until the truth can be known one way or the other) the Buddha's position on certain issues pertaining to the Dhamma. I also like the calm, sane, rational way in which he guides the audience... no wrathful fist-thumping on the table there. He treats them with respect.
