Meet Denver, a man raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana in the 1960s; a man who escaped, hopping a train to wander, homeless, for eighteen years on the streets of Dallas, Texas. No longer a slave, Denver's life was still hopeless-until God moved. First came a godly woman who prayed, listened, and obeyed. And then came her husband, Ron, an international arts dealer at home in a world of Armani-suited millionaires. And then they all came together.
Same Kind of Different As Me is the emotional tale of their story: a telling of pain and laughter, doubt and tears, dug out between the bondages of this earth and the free possibility of heaven.
- Excellent. Life changing.
I loved the way this book is read between two main (real life) characters. What a great reminder of God's grace, love, and redemption throughout life.
- Very powerful story
Well worth the purchase. Not only was it very interesting and really held our attention it really made me think deeply about some issues. So glad I bought it.
- Better Than Expected
This book tells the story of Ron Hall, a wealthy art-dealer who never had a problem that money couldn't help, and Denver Moore, a man raised in poverty as a share-cropper in the south. The two unlikely acquaintances met through Ron's wife who worked with a homeless shelter in the metro area of Dallas-Fort Worth. What began as Ron's self-congratulatory act of "lending a hand," eventually became a bond between he and Denver that anchored them through the storms of life.
This book was better than I expected, but my wife enjoyed it even more. She laughed and cried all through the book (and sometimes she did both at the same time!). As soon as she finished, she passed it on to one of her friends to read.
