Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
If you are among the few who have yet to read the first book, Same Kind of Different as Me, get yourself to the nearest bookstore.
This book has for good reason sold more than 12 million copies before being made into a movie!
The true story of the improbable friendship between a cosmopolitan international art dealer and the illiterate homeless ex-con will change the way you see the world.
It illustrates, as only God can, exactly what can happen when His spirit takes up residence in a person’s heart. The walls that separate us come down, and the power of His love reconciles and heals far beyond our wildest imagination.
What Difference Do It Make? by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
This could be called a sequel to the first book. It includes passages from the first book, but it picks up the journey of Denver and Ron in the years after Deborah’s death.
The story of how a homeless man who could not read or write wrote the book with Ron is a story in itself, filled with the odd duo’s adventures that took them both to celebrity status.
It also includes numerous accounts of everyday people whose lives were radically changed by an encounter with Same Kind of Different as Me.
God can use anyone when He wants to teach us a life lesson. It is true that He often “uses the foolish things of the world to shame the wise” (1 Corinthians 1:27). Denver Moore’s life and “Denverisms” will give you much food for deep thought.
