Three recent commentaries have come out in support of reading Paul's
PISTOU CHRISTOU formulation as an objective genitive.

1) Douglas J. Moo, _The Epistle to the Romans_, NICNT (Eerdmans, 1996;
n.b. pp. 224ff.).

2) Gordon Fee, _Paul's Letter to the Philippians_, NICNT (Eerdmans,
1995; n.b. p. 325, n. 44).

3) Moises Silva, _Philippians_, BECNT (Baker, 1992; n.b. pp. 186ff.).

Hope this helps,
