Book Review: Same Kind of Different As Me


Same Kind of Different As Me, by Ron Hall and Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent is a riveting and spiritually encouraging story of two men connected through one woman's pure demonstration of God's love.  This true story depicts the lives of Denver Moore and Ron Hall, from their extremely different childhoods and adult lifestyles to how they met and eventually developed a deep friendship, primarily due to Deborah Hall's devotion and desire for everyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

As a New York Times bestseller, this inspirational book is written in a compelling, easy-to-read manner.  Yet, it's an extremely powerful story that compels the readers to consider their personal faith journey.  According to page 61,  "All I can do is tell the jagged tale of my own spiritual journey and declare that my life has been the better for having followed Christ."  Same Kind of Different As Me is a wonderful ministry tool to share with others. 

While the historical violence is a bit harsh for young readers, this is still a highly recommended book for all ages and backgrounds.  According to page 235, "We're all just regular folks walkin down the road God done set in front of us....  So in a way, we is all homeless--just workin our way toward home."

Note: I received this book from Book Sneeze, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
