Some commentary about the subjective/objective genetive in relationship to
PISTIS in Galatians can be found in a text by Richard Hayes, called "The
Faith of Christ." I don't know that it will have universal bearing on
anyone's personal study throughout Scripture, but he does address a few of
the difficulties in translation and may provide some insight into the
matter. I believe the work is a dissertation, and probably not widely
available. My copy is actually 450 miles away at the moment, otherwise
I'd happily supply the appropriate information.

It should probably be noted that Hayes is a proponent of the subjective
position (i.e., that the faith is Christ's), and has been a relatively
prolific author on the subject.
