    Highly Recommended--Thought Provoking

    Dr. Palmieri offers keen insight explaining the "why" of our sense of disconnect, and "how" relationships affected by focusing on strengths, vs. those based on judgmental, blaming attitudes serve the ultimate purpose of needed restoration. Challenging readers to consider their mission, this author leads by example, bringing samples of the wisdom and positivity of heaven directly to earth for us in this thoughtful and inspired book. Short read; long-lasting impact!

    A quick but deep and thoughtful read

    I really like Palmieri's emphasis on focusing on the strengths of others rather than their limitations. The concepts are strong and the writing is powerful. The book doesn't take long to read, but the ideas presented will require many thoughtful hours to sort through. This book is about changing yourself and your relationship with others so that together, in community, you can bring "a touch of heaven to earth" You will want to read this book and apply its principles.

    Highly Recommend This New Book

    This book contains one of the most passionate calls to the concept of the Christian Community of any book that I have read.

    The book brings out many of the important elements of Christian Life and the Church. It would be an excellent choice to be included in a church library or introduced as an outstanding textbook to be added to a college course on this subject.

    I highly recommend this book to all that are interested in gaining insight into a Faith Community.

    Highly recommended

    Strength Renovation calls upon Christian communities to become healing agents in God's Kingdom. It is a call to STOP. take a deep breath, and spend time in prayer and in the scripture so we can refocus and once again mend and rebuild His church. Dr. Palmieri goes straight to the point through scripture whre the answers to dilemmas are so poignnantly clear...noting we can use the power of the Word to cut through the angst, fear, frustration confusion or anger of the past by taking hold of the Master's teachings and applying them directly to everyday life in small and in large undertakings. This book is a guide a manual, a direct no-nonsence format to encourge peach and reconciliation in our relationships at home, church, the workplace and community. What a blessing this new book is and I look forward to the author's next book!
