So I just finished reading this amazing book my Dad gave me. The preview to this book reads:
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.
Some people might find the description more or less mundane but let me tell you this book will open your heart, it might make you cry, it’ll bring some love and faith right to your doorsept, and it may even change your life. At least momentarily, it has helped me refocus on what I know truly matters to me the most. Hopefully it will do the same for you. The book is a 4-6 hour read depending on your style but I highly recommend it.
