 Hear Ron Hall, author of “Same Kind of Different as Me”  give his personal account of his unlikely relationship as an art dealer with a homeless man who threatened to kill everyone in sight.   His book was highlighted in the New York Times Bestseller list for 3-1/2 years and was later made into a movie starring Greg Kinnear and Renee Zellweger.  Inspired by "regular" people who make serious mistakes, it was among the top five faith-based films in 2017.  And, if you've read the book, this is your chance to learn more about the next phase in the lives of Ron and his friends as they faced life with courage, humility, honesty and commitment.   It is a compelling story that fills us with hope and optimism.

 Same Kind of Different as Me 

 

Ron Hall 

Ron Hall’s life was centered around a successful career as an international art dealer and a passion for his Rocky Top ranch on the Brazos River. All this changed in 1998 as a result of an encounter with a homeless man who was threatening to kill everyone in sight in the homeless shelter where Ron and his wife Deborah had begun to volunteer two weeks earlier.
This life-changing encounter, featured on many television and radio shows, inspired Ron to write his first book SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME, a story of hope and redemption. The word-of-mouth hit became a New York Times platinum bestseller and stayed on the list for more than three and one-half years.
In 2007, President Bush appointed Ron to the State Department Cultural Property Committee to advise the President on diplomatic matters regarding international art and antiquities. He served through December 2011.
Currently, Ron is a screenwriter and producer of the movie version of his book SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME that was released digitally Feb. 6 2018 and on DVD/Bluray Feb. 20 2018.

His new book, Working Our Way Home was released Feb. 20 2018.
