Rev. Fr. Clifford Dorkenoo launches Christian Religious Studies (CRS) Textbook

Rev. Fr. Clifford Dorkenoo of the Obuasi Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church and also a Christian Religious Studies (CRS) tutor at Christ the King Catholic Senior High School (CKCSHS) in Obuasi has launched a textbook which he said is an ‘all-in-one’ textbook.

The Reverend Father narrated that when he was first posted to CKCSHS to handle CRS, he realized many changes had been made to the syllabus but there was no book combining those topics to serve as a guide for both teachers and students. So that was when he started preparing and compiling comprehensive teaching notes that will meet the demands of both teachers and students alike.

“This book is a compilation of my teaching notes at CKCSHS and it satisfies both GES and WAEC syllabi”, he said.

“This book has answers to essay questions which are not clearly answered by other notes”, Rev. Fr. Clifford added.

“The topics in the book are thematically presented and are currently the best up-to-date CRS textbook.”

The book was launched at the St. Thomas Catholic Church Social Centre on Thursday, 22nd December, 2016 in the presence of high profile members in the Catholic Church including the Bishop of the diocese, Bishop John Yaw Afoakwa.

Bishop John Yaw Afoakwa in his presentation applauded the young Rev. Fr. for his boldness to take that massive step.

“Rev. Fr. Clifford has made this Diocese very proud and he has done what I couldn’t do”, the Bishop said.

‘Comprehensive Guide to Christian Religious Studies for SHS’ is the name of the new book and it has simple, clear, easy to understand and straight to the point presentation. It has a beautiful and eye catching cover and presentations designed by OS Media in Obuasi. It also contains relevant Biblical maps and charts and is an invaluable material for both teachers and students.

The first copy of the book was purchased at GHc500 and will be available in most Bookshops across the country.
