Same Kind of Different as Me

Last week I finished the book Same Kind of Different as Me. It was a great great story of how beautiful, painful, powerful, and great God is.

I’ve had this book since the summer before my freshman year of college. Baylor gave it to all the incoming freshman as a tool to facilitate discussion in our welcome groups the first 9 weeks of college. No one really read it…or talked about it. It’s moved from bookshelf to bookshelf along with my intentions of reading it. I wish I had read this book when Baylor put it in my hands.

This is a memior of Denver Moore and Ron Hall and how they collide in unlikely circumstances. God uses Ron’s wife, Debbie, as an inspiring tool to change a community of  the feared and impoverished into people who believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and have hope in something far bigger than themselves. Not only does this woman’s faith change the homeless of Fort Worth and their view of Christians, but she also shows grace to her husband and how to truly love.

This book will make you want to live a better story. Go read it.

You can buy it here on Amazon
