A Radical Reformation Definition of Faith

"Christian faith is an assurance that one can rely on the word and promise of CHRIST"

These are the opening words of Thomas Muntzer's On Counterfeit Faith (Dec, 1523). I rather warm to that definition. Any other good definitions out there?

James 1:27 is always good:

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
