Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery.An upscale art dealer accustomed to the worldof 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 forthe Academy Award-nominatedThe Pursuit of Happyness

Denver Moore and Ron Hall's story is one thatmoved me to tears. The friendship that formsbetween these two men at a time when both were ingreat need is an inspiration to all of us to be morecompassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book -Mrs. Barbara Bush

Synopsis:

Meet Denver, raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana until he escaped "da Man" - in the 1970s - after more than 30 years, by hopping a train. Then, after another 18 homeless years on the streets of Dallas, God moved...and a godly woman prayed, and listened, and obeyed. And mountains began to move, beginning with her husband, Ron, an international art dealer accustomed to the foo-foo world of Armani suits and art-collecting millionaires.

Then the story takes a devasting twist when Deborah discovers she has cancer. Will Deborah live or die? Will Denver learn to trust a white man? Will Ron embrace his dying wife's vision to rescue Denver? Or will Denver be the one rescuing Ron?

There's pain and laughter, doubt and tears, and in the end a triumphal story that readers will never forget.

Synopsis:

Meet Denver, a man raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana in the 1960s; a man who escaped, hopping a train to wander, homeless, for eighteen years on the streets of Dallas, Texas. No longer a slave, Denver's life was still hopeless-until God moved. First came a godly woman who prayed, listened, and obeyed. And then came her husband, Ron, an international arts dealer at home in a world of Armani-suited millionaires. And then they all came together.

But slavery takes many forms. Deborah discovers that she has cancer. In the face of possible death, she charges her husband to rescue Denver. Who will be saved, and who will be lost? What is the future for these unlikely three? What is God doing?

Same Kind of Different As Me is the emotional tale of their story: a telling of pain and laughter, doubt and tears, dug out between the bondages of this earth and the free possibility of heaven. No reader or listener will ever forget it.
