Product Description-Same Kind of Different As Me: A Modern-Day
 Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who
                      Bound Them Together
 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, this true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

Better Than Fiction, May 3, 2007 By Tim Challies (Oakville, Ontario)
  This review is from: Same Kind Of Different As Me (Hardcover) At a recent conference I met a gentleman who happens to edit
one of those airline magazines that always competes with your legroom in an airplane. A short time ago he sent me an email
and asked if I had heard of a book called Same Kind of Different as Me and recommended that I read it. He seemed like a good
enough guy and the book had a great cover, so I went ahead and ordered it sight unseen (or nearly so). And what a book it
turned out to be.Same Kind of Different as Me, a book that is factual but could just as easily be fiction, tells the unlikely story of
the unlikeliest of friends--Ron Hall and Denver Moore. Told in two voices, the book alternates between telling the story from the
perspective of Ron and Denver.Ron Hall is a wealthy international art dealer who travels the world buying and selling rare and
expensive works of art. He has grown rich but has also grown selfish and has grown away from his family. When Ron Hall
reluctantly volunteers at a...

  This review is from: Same Kind Of Different As Me (Hardcover) I finished this book in less than 3 days. I was taken in by
chapter 2 and laughed, cried, pondered, and repented the whole way through. It is well written and easy to digest yet full of
hidden treasures.I like that this book challenges those of us who consider ourselves Christian - that we usually aren't as real as
we say and certainly rarely have actions that are as revolutionary as Jesus paved the way for.Both authors are honest in their
struggles with themselves, their histories, weaknesses and the strength found in their purpose together.I most admire that they
consider making a difference in one life, and the difference one life can make, important.

This is one of the two most powerful books I have read in my lifetime., November 3, 2006 By Julie Cook (Fort Worth, Texas)
   This review is from: Same Kind Of Different As Me (Hardcover) A friend gave me this book and told me it would "change my
life" but I had no idea to what extent!Having been raised in Fort Wotth, as a young girl, I can remember going to the Union
Gospel Mission to help with services for the homeless. They had to attend a service in order to enjoy a free meal. I remember it
as being one of the dirtiest, stinkiest and scariest places I had ever seen.This book takes place at that very mission. It is the
true, but almost unbelievable story of three very different people whose lives come together in a way that can only be explained
as "God ordained". The things that happen in the lives of these three people are so amazing that you will not be able to put the
book down. I have a new love and appreciation for the Union Gospel Mission. It has now become a beautiful place to me...an
annointed place where needy people can find food, shelter, love and then come face to face with Jesus.You will be challenged
to look...
