Product Description

Denver Moore grew up in Louisiana in the 1960's, working on a plantation as a modern-day slave. Ron Hall is an international arts dealer who moves between upscale New York galleries and celebrities. It seems unlikely that these two men would meet under normal circumstances. Until Deborah Hall, Ron's wife meets Denver and sees him through God's eyes of compassion. When Deborah is diagnosed with cancer she charges Ron with the mission of saving Denver. From this request, an extraordinary friendship forms between Denver and Ron, changing them both forever. A remarkable true story of friendship and unconditional love!

Publisher's Description

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery.
An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world
of Armani and Chanel.
A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream.
A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.


It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana. . . and an East Texas honky-tonk . . .and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster. . . a Texas ranch.

Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

This incredible retelling now includes an interview with the authors and a reader’s guide that is perfect for individual or group study.

The most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, fortitude, and friendship I have ever read. A powerful example of the healing, restorative power of forgiveness and the transformational, life changing power of unconditional love.
—Mark Clayman, Executive Producer for
the Academy Award–nominated
The Pursuit of Happyness

Denver Moore and Ron Hall’s story is one that
moved me to tears. The friendship that forms
between these two men at a time when both were in
great need is an inspiration to all of us to be more
compassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book!
—Mrs. Barbara Bush

    This story is about two men (Ron Hall and Denver Moore) and and how their lives came together through the impact of one woman's dream and faith. Her love and compassion transformed the homeless living on the streets of Fort Worth, Texas.

    This book captured me from the very first sentence. It was an easy read as it was very well written and structured. The authors switched from one character to the other throughout the book to show how their lives paralleled and to tell their own take on the story. There was only one time I was a bit confused about who was writing but only because the beginning of their lives were so similar.

    I have to say that I felt very humbled by the book. I've jokingly made comments about living under a bridge because of our own shaky circumstances, but I think I will refrain from doing so now. It's probably not as easy to survive as I'd naively assumed. I was horrified to realize that there was still slavery in the 60's. Perhaps the south had their way of justifying it, but it looked, smelled and walked like slavery.

    I was humbled by the fact that Denver's life actually improved after leaving his plantation life and that he found homelessness to be an improvement. I was humbled by how dedicated and committed he was to pray every night through the whole night for the life of the one woman who showed him unconditional love. I was inspired to pray for an increase in my own prayer life.

    I loved this book on every level (for it's inspiration and encouragement about the redemptive and transformational power of unconditional love) and consider it a must read book!

    This review was written for Same Kind of Different As Me.
    This book was published in 2006 and I was intrigued by it. When a friend at church recommended it to the leadership, and thought everyone should read it, I was even more intrigued.

    This book, written by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, spent three years on the New York Times Bestseller list. It is the story of an unlikely friendship. A friendship that crossed barriers, prejudices.

    Ron Hall is a white man. He grew up poor, found a job as an investment banker, and then moved to owning his own company. He became an international art dealer.

    Denver Moore is a black man, born to sharecroppers. Living one step ahead of starvation and then later one step ahead of the law. Homeless.

    Deborah Hall brought these men together through her love for Jesus Christ. She volunteered to serve at the Union Gospel Mission where the homeless would go to get a meal and hear about Jesus. Denver came. He resisted the friendship Debbie offered, resisted the friendship Ron offered.

    But he couldn't resist the friendship Jesus offered.

    Tragedy struck. Denver was sure Ron would release him from their friendship. Ron was just as sure he wouldn't.

    This is their story.

    I am not entirely sure how to write my review. The book was good. It was great to see the world through their eyes, to see each other as they saw the other. I realized anew that prejudice and racism have no skin color. No one has a corner on that market. I learned it's an easy trap to fall into.

    I give this book 4.5 turning pages.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher (Thomas Nelson) for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.

    This review was written for Same Kind of Different As Me.
    The Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore is a book one of my book clubs read earlier this year, but I missed that particular meeting. From what I heard, all of them loved it, so I'm kinda glad I didn't have a chance to talk about it - I really didn't care for it at all.

    The actual plot was interesting, but the characters did not feel authentic. I found myself rolling my eyes more than once and feeling frustrated that the powerful white man was portrayed as such a better Christian than anyone else. Not cool. I just didn't feel this one.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Ron Hall
Located in: Dallas, Texas
Submitted: June 25, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have been an art dealer most of my life and in the book, I told more about me than most folks will ever want to know!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I was motivated to tell a great love story and honor my wonderful, faithful wife, Deborah, and the man of her dream, Denver!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  That free food and government funds will keep people alive, but It takes love to make a change in their lives..Also, that homeless person you have been passing by for years might be your guardian angel and no matter what he or she looks like, THEY ARE THE SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT as you.....

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Denver is the one who first suggested we "write ourselves a book" because according to him there ain't nobody gonna believe this story!!!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  the profits from this book are going to the Union Gospel Mission and other ministeries that care for homeless
