Publisher's Summary

Listen to the critically acclaimed number-one New York Times best seller with more than one million copies sold. Same Kind of Different as Me was a major motion picture release by Paramount in fall 2017.

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, inside the heart of God. It unfolds at a Hollywood hacienda...an upscale New York gallery...a downtown dumpster...a Texas ranch.

Gritty with betrayal, pain, and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

Bonus material in this special movie edition includes:

  • A new epilogue with updates on the authors since the release of the original book
  • The amazing story behind the movie, how it got made, and the incredible experiences while filming in Jackson, MS.

RADICAL KIND OF DIFFERENCE

A captivating alluring truth. Every night I could hardly wait to meet Denver and his awesome words of wisdom and life. Thank God for a woman like Debbie and a man like Ron making a difference in this world every day. The three of them having and being what the other one needed. Me being a street evangelist I find the same kind of different as me. I love this book it hooked me on every level and now I pass the torch to family and friends. Thank you for the Insight of God in this book and his love for every man, woman, boy and girl In spite of Ourselves goodness and mercy followed through by grace.

Amazing

This true story refreshed my soul. I sent free copies to as many people as I could. While I am going through changing seasons in my life and our church is also changing, it reinforced my discernment that God has a plan and like Dallas said "if the devil ain't messing with you, he's already got you". Mr. Ron, thank you for sharing Ms Debbie and Dallas' story.

Wonderful and thought provoking story.

I loved listening to this book. It made me laugh at times and other times, cry. The narrative was done very well and I am excited to see the story on the big screen with its amazing cast.

Inspiring read

I was reminded how I sometimes judge people and the power of knowing their story changes that perspective. We all need to take more time to know others and hold back thoughts of what they may or may not be until then. Defiantly a book I will be passing on

Wonderful story

Everyone should get this book! If 10 percent of the population would help with the homeless it would improve a lot of lives.

God's not dead...

If you would like to see God at work in people's lives then this is a great book. Our media, society, and government are systematically removing religion from our lives and look at the result, mass shootings, cheating, divorce, and so on.
God's alive and well and watching us to see if we'll do our mission here on Earth, death comes to every one of us, yes you too will die. Will you be proud of your life when in God's presence. This book reminds us of this, loved it. We need more books like this.
