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, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster. . . a Texas ranch.
Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.
This incredible retelling now includes an interview with the authors and a reader’s guide that is perfect for individual or group study.
The most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, fortitude, and friendship I have ever read. A powerful example of the healing, restorative power of forgiveness and the transformational, life changing power of unconditional love.—Mark Clayman, Executive Producer for the Academy Award–nominated The Pursuit of Happyness
Denver Moore and Ron Hall’s story is one that moved me to tears. The friendship that forms between these two men at a time when both were in great need is an inspiration to all of us to be more compassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book!—Mrs. Barbara Bush

It has been a while since I have read this book. However, I read my son's review and found his perspective interesting - and knowing him as I do I understand where he is coming from. My self however, have a different perspective. I am a Counselor AT a Rescue Mission here in the Midwest. While I personally cannot fully identify with Denver's predicament, or even Ron's for that matter I can understand the hopeless of Denver and the disillusionment of Ron. I must say that I cringe when I read other reviewers passing judgement on Ron - saying he is being "Self Righteous" etc., Ron had come to the place in his life where he realized that he was in fact, NOT "Righteous" at all! This book is about the redemption of two men, with very different backgrounds. Ron and Denver did have one thing in common... A desperate need for real, genuine PEACE in their hearts.

I think that this was one of the best most insprialtional books I have read in a very long time...I love the approach of how God works and even if you do not follow a particular religion you will find this book very upliftingmore
This book was so good it's hard to believe that it is non-fiction! The story of Denver and Ron touched so deep into my soul I don't think I'll soon forget their story. It was such a good reminder of how different everyone's struggles are and reinforces the lesson of judging others. This book made me realize that I need to do more to give back to others. We can wish for miracles all day or ask God to make a difference in the lives of others but ultimately it is in our hands to make that difference and do his work here on earth. Of course it is through his strength that we have been given any of our gifts but make no mistake, we are his hands, that is what we were put on this earth to do. The writing style of Denver's side takes a little getting used to but it is such a touching story and so worth it. I'd recommend this book to everyone!more

Rated: AGreat book! Perhaps living and working in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and having spent much of my childhood in the old South made the book more special to me. In many ways, I could relate to Ron and Debbie Hall's life -- from their lives, to thier successes and struggles, to their fight against cancer, to their ministry to the "least of these". I found myself laughing and crying from chapter to chapter. Romans 8:28.more
When an upper class couple decide to volunteer at a soup kitchen, they never expect that a homeless man will impact their lives more than they impact his. Told in narratives by all three, a beautiful story is written about the love and trust built between strangers.more
