Listen: Ron Hall, author of New York Times Best Selling book 'Same Kind of Different As Me' , chats with Fee in Mornings
The new movie ‘Same Kind of Different As Me’ will premiere online this Friday (May 29) and Fee caught up with author of The New York Times best-selling book Ron Hall. He also wrote and produced the movie which chronicles the story of Ron, his wife and an ex-felon and murderer named Denver “Suicide” Moore.
This is a timeless true story of friendship, family, forgiveness and faithfulness in following God’s calling, even when we do not understand why and stars Greg Kinnear and Renee Zellweger portraying the lives of Ron and his wife. Since the release of the book, Ron and Denver helped to raise a reported US$90 million for homeless shelters across the country — a remarkable harvest reaped from the seeds planted by his wife’s simple-but-profound love.
All of this would not have been possible without his unique and life-changing friendship with Denver. Ron now speaks around the world on topics that include racial unity, putting a new face on the homeless, the power of forgiveness to change lives, and stories from the 10 years of living with the previously homeless Denver.
Same Kind of Different As Me, starring Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, and Djimon Hounsou, will have its Australian and New Zealand Premiere this Friday, as part of the Heritage Films Online Premiere initiative.
