'The Big Book of Textual Variants', as I call this book, is a must for anyone interested in the Greek text of the New Testament (I realise this is a fairly small section of the population). In it Comfort not only lists all significant variants to the Greek New Testament manuscripts, but lists the manuscripts that contain them, and the English translations (if any), which contain them. He also gives the English translation of each variant, and a brief discussion of the variants. This is of course a reference book, but it is still fascinating reading.

In addition to the main body of the work, Comfort gives a brief introduction to the Textual Criticism of the Bible, and a history of the New Testament, both in Greek and in English. This further increases the usefulness of this already useful volume. Not only that, but it has an attractive hardcover binding that means it looks as good on the shelf as it does on your desk.

This is an impressive piece of work, and one that ought to sell more widely than it probably will. If you ever wondered why English translations differ, or what the notes at the bottom of the page in modern translations mean, then you might like this book. Just be aware that it's nearly 1000 pages long!
