Westerholm: Faith in Christ

One of the many reasons reading Steve Westerholm is a delight:

For my part, I have no objection whatever to the subjective genitive reading of the pistis christou (faith/faithfulness of Christ) formulas other than that it is wrong.

--Perspectives Old and New on Paul, 305 n18

Whether Westerholm is right or not, I look forward to the volume edited by Mike Bird and Preston Sprinkle, The Faith of Jesus Christ, to be out in 2009 by Paternoster, which I'm hoping will help me settle the matter in my own mind.
