G'day Tim,

Here's a few that should be helpful.

1. Roy A. Harrisville III, "PISTIS CHRISTOU: Witness of the
Fathers" (Novum Testamentum, Vol XXXVI, 3, July 1994).

2. Arland J. Hultgren, "The Pistis Christou Formulation in Paul"
(Novum Testamentum, Vol XXII, 3, July 1980).

3. A.V. Longworth, "Faith in Galatians" (Studia Evangelica, Vol 2,
Berlin, 1964).

I've got a bibliography on this somewhere, but I don't have time to
locate it right now. I'll try to look for it when I have some free
time and post it to you.

Also... You should check out the b-greek archives at
