Thirty years ago when Richard Hays and I were doing our doctoral work, he asked me to read a draft of his thesis on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ in Galatians. I was immediately impressed with the importance of this theme, and filled the margins of the manuscript with copious notes and suggestions. Richard could not have imagined then what an enormous storm of controversy his exploring of this theme would cause in scholarly communities right round the world, and the controversy still rages thirty years later. I have long wished for a collection of essays, from varying viewpoints that examines the subject of pistis Christou more thoroughly, and finally thanks to Michael Bird and others we have one. Not only are there essays in this volume by NT scholars but also by theologians as well, as the wider impact of 'the faithfulness of Christ' theme are assessed. Highly recommended! --Ben Witherington, III, Amos Professor of NT for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
The meaning of faith of Christ continues to be intensely debated in scholarship. This work provides an up to date, charitable, and informed discussion of the whole matter. It is helpful to have in one volume essays on both sides of the question. --Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Kentucky

Faith IN or Faith OF Jesus Christ?
on 28 February 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This volume addresses the question of whether Pistis Christou means "Faith in.." or "Faith of..." Jesus Christ. This has enormous theological implications: are we saved by faith IN Jesus Christ, or by the faith OF Jesus Christ. Whatever you stand on how salvation is achieved this volume is a must read, as well as Richard Hays's dissertation "Faith of Jesus Christ."

Faith of Jesus Christ,The Exegetical, Biblical, and Theological Studies
on 1 October 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
The book has 17 chapters and everyone has a different author. Both sides of the subjective genitive interpretation of pistis Iasou Christou is investigated in depth. Both the subjective and objective genitive applications are thoroughly considered. I found the book to be a treasure of information.
