Same Kind of Different as Me

I didn't get my second book finished on vacation but I did get it started. And, once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Same Kind of Different as Me is one amazing book! If I had the funds, I'd buy 1000 copies and pass it out to everyone I know, and some I don't know. It's that good! In fact, I would say that there are two books that have made me look at things in a way I never have before. One is Safely Home by Randy Alcorn and this book, Same Kind of Different as Me.

Same Kind of Different as me is the story of Denver Moore, a man who grew up on a plantation in the South, virtually a slave, after slavery had been ablolished, and Ron Hall, an international art dealer. By the time they met up in the 1990's Denver was homeless and living in Fort Worth, Texas, and Ron was living high on the hog. Their story, and that of the woman who brought them together, will change the way you think about the homeless, and even about the miraculous power of God. As Denver says, "our limitations are God's opportunities."

While this story is true, it reads like a novel. You will not regret the time you take to read this book. It is a story that will make you laugh, make you cry, and change your world.
