    This work is not up to date as it is still promoting the TR as a result of a recension by Lucian. That has been considered an old wife's tale for at least a decade if not two or three.

    I've used Comfort's textual commentary since it was first published. It's an excellent resource for a pastor or Bible teacher who wants to get an overview of how the different readings of Greek manuscripts change how different English translations render the New Testament. My main wish for this resource would be that each translation mentioned by abbreviation in the apparatus was hotlinked to the actual text or marginal note of that translation (if the user has access). This would help declutter a user's workspace.
