"Our people need this!" - the late Dr. Gene Hood, New Palestine, Indiana
"Thornton's essay is a very helpful exercise ... concerning the relationship between 'holiness of life' and 'holiness of heart.' The result is a clear and thoughtful statement about the place of lifestyle standards." - Dr. Stephen J. Lennox, President, Kingswood University
"For the answer to 'Why Standards?,' read this book for a wonderful, profitable understanding of the critical connection between content and form of holiness, to wit, of heart and life; beautifully illustrated with the unique analogy of heart and skin. Every chapter, paragraph, sentence and word is inspirational and written unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith and will redound to the glory of God and to your benefit." - J. George Lawrence, M. D., Author of Sovereign Scriptural Segues
