They worked for me, showed me how I could usefully apply this stuff qualitatively (comparisons) without working out the actual numbers.

The actual examples are the question of the historical Jesus. You could say that's an inherently controversial example, therefore bad. However, the question is then "compared to what?" If there is a better set of worked examples, then please present it.
