Book Review: Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

Two men (Denver, a black homeless man, and Ron, a wealthy Texas art dealer) recount the story of their, very different, lives.  Ron’s wife, Debbie, brings these two men together and their unlikely friendship becomes a reality.  Faith, love, and caring for others unconditionally are what these two men learn from each other.  Same Kind of Different As Me, is truly eye-opening and life-changing.

I really enjoyed reading this honest, and thought provoking novel.  Denver and Ron’s intertwined stories drew me in; it was as if I was there along with them.  It was easy to read this novel; not only was it inspirational, it was simple to understand.  Their story made me think about how I’m living my life, and how charity should have a bigger place in my life as well.  Laughing and crying through all the bitter-sweet moments; I realize that it really was not that long ago when racism and oppression were the norm!  I would, very much, recommend this novel to others.  Perhaps some Secondary Schools should consider including it in their English classes….would our adults of tomorrow be enriched?  YES.

Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy.
