I'm Odd, Thank You Godby Charlie W. Shedd, Anne Nightingale (Editor), Dennis Hill (Illustrator)
I'm Odd, Thank You God is not about being "different" for the sake of getting attention at any cost. There's no merit, Dr. Shedd believes, in being strange just to be strange.

I'm Odd, Thank You God is not about being "different" for the sake of getting attention at any cost. There's no merit, Dr. Shedd believes, in being strange just to be strange. However, with his unusual and fascinating story-telling skill, he narrates tales out of his own life--from early childhood to his eighties--that wonderfully reveal how rewarding it can be to have the character and courage to be different forthe sake of doing good...or for the sake of some just plain wholesome pleasure. Though this is not a formal autobiography, it is the closest thing to the story of his life that Charlie has written. I'm Odd, Thank You God is, page by page, typical Charlie Shedd reading entertainment that is chock full of life-lessons you will use the rest of your days.
About the Author:
Dr. Charlie W. Shedd is a master communicator of homespun wisdom. He has spent a lifetime making God's grandest truth available to the simplest of folks. Dr. Shedd served as a Presbyterian minister for over 50 years. He was the shepherd of small country churches and big city cathedrals. Along the way, he walked alongside janitors, farmers, physicians, and presidential cabinet members. "Pastor Shedd" never met a stranger, or left anyone who did not feel richer for being in this presence.
He has authored over 40 books, written nationally syndicated columns, and been a favorite guest of numerous television and radio personalities. He is credited with being originator of the Christian weight-loss movement, and along with Bill Cosby, he helped plant Quest courses in thousands of middle and high schools across the country.
Perhaps more than anything, save his role as a husband to Martha and later to Anna Ruth, Charlie will be remembered for advice on love and relationships. The high-water mark for these efforts can be found in the classic books, Letters to Karen and Letters to Philip. These books have sold in the millions. He mentored a Christian generation in the art of keeping Christ and joy in the heart of relationships.
Charlie Shedd has come to personify the best ideals of Christian counseling. He knows the pain life can bring. He knows how to communicate God's love and wisdom directly to aching hearts.
