Same Kind Of Different As Me

by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

Hands down the most driving book I’ve read this year. When I first received this from Booksneeze (free books for book review bloggers, part of Thomas Nelson), I looked at the tiny print and thought “How am I going to read this, I don’t have time.” Then I opened it, and read it. Within a few days. That’s super fast for me, with full-time kid and house demands.

Denver was a modern-day slave in the 1960’s. The “Man” kept him in a constant state of “owing” for every necessity, so that even while Denver was working all day every day as a cotton picker, his debt only grew – until he hopped a train and learned how to be homeless. Ron was an international art dealer, with lots of money and a failing marriage.

This is the story of how Ron’s wife, Deborah, pulled these two men into the friendship of a lifetime.

This is the story of how God can use anybody, even those who seem useless.

This is a story of unconditional love, forgiveness, redemption.

I highly recommend this book.
