I just finished reading Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. The book cover reads “New York Times Bestseller and Amazing True Story”, and I must say it is truly amazing! This is the best book I have read in some time.
Same Kind of Different As Me is an inspirational true story about two men (Ron and Denver) from two different worlds…one an art dealer, the other a homeless drifter who grew up in virtual slavery…and the woman who brought them together (Ron’s wife Deborah).
The story is written by both men. Ron tells his parts of the story in a chapter, then Denver tells his. I love the way the reader gets to see each man’s perspective. I also love how Denver’s story is written just as he would speak it. The book grabs your attention quickly keeps you turning pages, wanting to see what will happen next.
As I read this story many emotions surfaced. I laughed, got mad, and cried (more than once). It is an incredibly gripping story of faith, trust and friendship like I have never seen before. The unlikely friendship that forms between these two men is truly amazing. I was inspired and deeply moved by the devotion and love shown between these friends, who become more like brothers.
I never thought I could learn so much wisdom from an uneducated, homeless man, but Denver Moore has left me with some deep thoughts. A couple of quotes from Denver stand out in my mind.
When you is precious to God, you become important to Satan.
Our limitation is God’s opportunity.
This is an absolutely wonderful book! I highly recommend everyone pick up a copy and read it…maybe twice.
