Chalres is the author of What in the World Is God Doing. He has had a long time love affair with the Bible ever since as a teenager when he enrolled in a correspondence course. Through the years his conviction has deepened that the Bible is a remarkable record of God's involvement with the world. In What in the World Is God Doing God's activity in the affairs of mankind is grouped around God as the Creator, the Good Shepherd, and the Eternal King.

Charles said about writing What in the World Is God Doing, "Now it is time for me to put in writing a synopsis of my basic convictions. I have declared these truths through sixty-nine years since my ordination to the Baptist ministry on May 8,1937. I have had the privilege of sharing them with people in my pastorates in Texas and Illinois, in the chaplaincy during World War II, (1942-1946), and as a missionary of the Southern Baptist Convention in Brazil (1947-1980)."
