Book Review: Same Kind of Different As Me

The Same Kind of Different As Me, by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, is a compelling true story about two completely different lives--one, a homeless drifter who grew up enslaved by a plantation owner picking cotton, the other, an upscale art dealer living the good life--and the woman who brought them together to become friends forever. 

This story is told by each of the two men about their lives and how their lives changed because of the art dealer's wife.  Deborah had a heart of gold and a vision for the homeless in her city.  How her vision played out and affected the lives of all who knew her is a fascinating story that reminds us that we need to listen to the messages God puts in our hearts and never give up.  She had enough faith for everyone.  From the relationship between the two men, we learn that we aren't so different from others as we think we are.

I loved this book!  It was very well written from the heart and perspective of each man.  They were both brutally honest about their lives and their thoughts along the way and you walked away feeling like you knew them and their struggles.  I don't want say much more but make sure you do have a box of kleenex handy when reading this. 

Right now, you can get this wonderful book from Amazon for just $9.99 with free supersaver shipping on orders over $25.

Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson to provide my honest review.  This review contains my honest opinions.
