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 review was written for Same Kind of Different As Me.
    This is a true story told by the men who authored this book. The story goes back and forth between them. Denver grew up in Louisiana. He and his family were sharecroppers and picked cotton, shopped at the company store,and lived in a shack. Times changed, and the landowners no longer needed people like Denver to pick cotton. Hopping a train, he made his way to Fort Worth, Texas.

    Ron grew up with privilege and education. He met and married Deborah. They had two children and raised them in Fort Worth, Texas. He traveled all over the world buying and selling artwork to very wealthy people.

    A friend of Ron and Deborah invited them to a Bible Study they held in their home. Eventually, they both became Christians. Deborah heard about a mission in the city that needed donors. She and Ron started going every Tuesday to help serve meals to the homeless. Deborah was more committed than Ron, but he went along not knowing how involved the two of them would become.

    One of the men who came to the mission was Denver. This is a story of how three people came to know each other, and how they came to know Christ. Their lives were forever radically changed.

    People tend to feel very good about helping poor homeless people when it is on their own terms. Seeing homeless everyday and interacting with them on a regular basis is something else. We believe we are doing them a huge favor, and they should be grateful. We don't always see that we are condescending and judgmental. Giving away your cast-offs and parting with a little of your money may not be enough after reading this book.

    This review was written for Same Kind of Different As Me.
    I have to admit something. I normally don't enjoy reading nonfiction. I'm not drawn to it and when I do read it, often a book takes me months and months to finish. Unfortunately, this book wasn't any different.

    This true story is about two men, Ron Hall and Denver Moore, and their unlikely friendship. The book chronicles the lives of each man in alternating chapters, provide a unique perspective about the friendship as you read their story. Denver lets us peek into his life as a slave on a cotton plantation and gives us a glimpse into the reality of being homeless. Ron provides us with commentary about his feelings toward homeless individuals and the part that his wife played in changing his heart toward this population.

    The topic of this book is important, yet difficult for individuals to talk about. I appreciate the authors taking time to recount their story and emphasize to the audience how important it is to think about these things and work through your biases on the matter. Getting to know an individual who may seem very different from you could lead to a beautiful friendship -- or at least a better understanding of others.

    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!
