It is a story of an unlikely friendship between Denver Moore (a homeless black man) and Ron and Deborah Hall (white, wealthy Texans). Deborah sees Denver through God's eyes for the man he could be and Ron can only see him as he is. At Deborah insistence, Ron makes friends with Denver. Initially, Ron views the relationship as one sided (what he can do for Denver). As the friendship progresses Ron finds that Denver (an uneducated, homeless man) has far more to offer and it is he who benefits more from the friendship . It shows that those society views as the least of us, God will use to make a huge difference in our lives. The story will make you laugh and cry, but mostly it will inspire you.
I have read this story one other time. It was given to me as a gift. I let someone borrow it and wasn't able to get it back. I loved the book so much and wanted to re-read it, so I had to order it again, I was not disappointed! I have already re-read it and have passed it on to my husband to read.
It is a beautiful story of an unlikely friendship of two people from such different places in their lives. Because of the faith of one woman who trusted God as what He wanted her to do.
