A lecturer at the Central University, Eddie Carboo on Friday launched a book, titled “Be Balanced,” with a call on students not to neglect the word of God in the pursuit of academic laurels.
According to Mr Carboo who doubles as a pastor, a student could become a better person by combining education with the word of God.
“The word of God and education work hand in hand and must be combined effectively for one to succeed in life,” he stated.
He added that, it also ensures that students remain focused and have a balanced life towards education and life as a whole.
The well-researched book which combines scriptures and its impact on individuals with regard to their careers and other aspects of life, he said, has lots of insights for all.
“This is a book for all in any spears of life as it explains the need to be balanced from the scripture and life perspectives,” he stated.
“One can attain the highest level of education but need to be balanced in order to succeed. The word of God guides one’s steps through the academic ladder,” he explained.
Pastor Carboo said, the title “Be Balanced,” was to stress the need for people to be balanced in spirit, soul and body.
“There is so much corruption in the world right now and the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer. The world needs to be balanced so that resources could be shared across board,” he stated.
He said, the book would help people understand the need not to be corrupt and provide the right services and charge accordingly.
Pastor Caboo added that one must also be emotionally balanced with the issues of prosperity, time, priorities of life, work, faith and grace, all tackled in the book.
He urged the youth, especially students to grab a copy of the book at books shops across the country in order to succeed in all their endeavours.
Chairman for the occasion, Rev. Ismaila Awudu praised the author for coming out with the masterpiece that would educate people on the need to stay upright.
He added that the book tackled problems faced in Ghana, Africa and the world at large and everyone from the education sector to the Government must have a copy of the book.
Pastor Telford Abayateye, bought the first copy of the book for GH¢6, 500.
