SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME by Ron Hall & Denver Moore

I would like to thank Book Sneeze for giving me this book.  This is a true story of a wonderful, unlikely friendship between two men that lived completely different lives.  Denver was a very poor black man that worked hard as a sharecropper but only the man that owned the land made a profit.Denver was just a “modern slave”.  He escaped and ended up living a life on the streets. 

While Ron lived a lavish life as an art dealer.  But because  Ron’s wife, Deborah, listened to the call of God  and acted on it, lives were changed forever. God asked her to work at a mission and to befriend a  certain man that would in time change that city forever.  God gave her a picture of what the man looked like and she assigned her husband to befriend this man, who wanted nothing to do with anyone.  A man that everyone avoided.  But when God asks someone to do something and God is working, miracles happen.  Their relationship was unshakable and great things did happen.

I had a very hard time getting through the first few chapters of this book as it switched from Denver to Ron’s writings.  But the last half of the book was worth the struggle of the first part. It is certainly a story of a true, lasting friendship.
