Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Reverend David Nenyi Ampah Bennin, Director General-Public Affairs Department, Ghana Police Service, at the weekend launched his maiden book titled: ?To Die or not to Die,? in Accra. POLICE SERVICE
He said the book is a Christian literature, which touches on the subject of two deaths- first, the physical death, which also means sacrifice, and the permanent separation from God.
DCOP Ampah Bennin explained that he wrote the book because he thinks there is something missing in the Bible.
?People treat the Bible as an ordinary reading material, when in fact, there are hidden answers to some questions raised? which can help solve some problems we encounter as an individual and as a society.?
He explained that lots of Christians are taking a lot of things for granted these days, stressing: ?I advise Christians to note that we are here for a purpose, so we need to be disciplined in our endeavours?.
The book, he said, is a teacher; a teaching material for people to understand the scripture, therefore very happy to write something down for prosperity.
Mr Alhassan Andani , Chief Executive Officer, Stanbic Bank, who was the Chairman at the occasion expressed excitement about the book saying: ?I?m very pleased that Rev Ampah Bennin has put down his Godly thought that should rule the world, and I believe there is going to be a lot of people to use the wisdom in his book.?
Mr Andani urged Ghanaians to develop the habit of reading, ?because reading helps to improve oneself?when you read a book like DCOP?s ?To Die or not to Die?, which I?m honoured and deeply impacted with?.
Rev Clement Anchebah, Chairman, International Presbytery of the Fountain Gate Chapel, said: ?I?ve seen that the principles of this book cut across this society. This book is an attempt to let every person realise that there?s something to do even if it will cost you your life; and I appreciate the book for that.?
He noted that the concept of the book: ?To Die or not to Die,? is a good one, and urged police officers , politicians, and everybody in managerial position in the country to read it ?because I believe it will instill some virtue of sacrifice in our professions?.
?I believe this book will touch lives and touch lives positively, because it carries the principles in life; provoking thoughts, therefore, it?s worth supporting.?
Rev Anchebah expressed the belief that the message in the book is a glorious call to Ghanaians to die a little for the nation in order to move it forward.
