"Same Kind of Different As Me" by Denver Moore and Ron Hall
Denver Moore grew up in modern-day slavery, a sharecropper from Louisiana. When he finally had enough, he jumped a train out and ended up homeless in Texas for decades.
Ron Hall had a lower-middle class upbringing and worked himself into the upper class by becoming a high end art dealer.
These two men couldn't have lived any more different lives. But when the two men came together through Ron's wife Debbie, they forged an incredible bond and the result was a life-changing, extraordinary kind of love no one saw coming.
Same Kind of Different As Me is an amazing true story. The friendship that has formed between Denver and Ron will be an inspiration to everyone who reads the book. Theirs is a story of friendship, faith and forgiveness.
Written in the narratives of the two men, so much is covered in this book. Compassion, mercy, the grace of God, homelessness, the trappings of success - the people in this book represent two completely different spectrums of society, but they show that in many ways and in the most important ways, we are all the same. This book will move you, inspire you and stay with you as it challenges you to see our world in a different way.
