'As a general rule, the more complex and/or emotional the issue, the greater the tendency to select only part of the evidence, prematurely construct a grid, and so filter the rest of the evidence through the grid that is robbed of any substance. What is needed is even-handedness, along with a greater desire for fidelity than for originality in the interpretation of the Scriptures.' 
DA Carson in Mark Meynell, The New Testament and Slavery: Approaches & Implications, p.25.
