Same Kind of Different as Me

Same Kind of Different as Me by surprised me. I was not prepared to be so touched by a book, but I was, partly because it brought up things in my own life. This book touches on the reality that we're more the same than different; though we come from various backgrounds we're all made by God and are worthy of love. God is truly redemptive and forgiving and we can learn so much from each other. I read this book in one day because I could not put it down; it intrigued me on so many levels and I don't want to go too into it or spoil it for others, but it hit home for me. I closed the book in tears because if hit such a raw place in my heart.

I am almost afraid to re-read this book, so instead I have given it as gifts and every person that I have given it to has loved it as I have, been touched by this true story. There were some views that I have a different opinion about but it did not detract or distract from the message. This is a book you will want to loan out and give away. It will be a hard one to keep on your shelf because you'll want to share. A friend of mine did this book in her interfaith book club with a lot of amazing discussion and depth.

Such a beautiful story.
