I found this exhaustive breakdown of the Critical / Majority / Confessional views really helpful. Appologies if it has already been shared. It’s a long read but worth it if you’d like to see the strengths and weaknesses of each method. The author doesn’t come out in FULL support of any one particular text but leans towards the Majority Text as a good starting point and refers to his preferred model as “Equitable Eclecticism” at the end.

One thing I found surprising was his parallel comparison to the ancient works of Homer, which is often used as an argument for CT presuppositions, only he uses it to draw support for the “medium text” (which he states is more akin to the Byzantine family than Alexandrian).
