THE BOOK OF ELI (2010)
“Do more for others than for yourself.” -Eli
CHRIST IN CULTURE
Believing you can do something that needs to be done.
SYNOPSIS: In the not-too-distant future, across the wasteland of what was once America, a lone warrior must fight to bring civilization the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption.
TWO VIEWS OF THE BIBLE.
As much as Eli believes the Bible will serve as the basis for a new, just and equitable society, a chance to start over and avoid the errors of the past, Carnegie sees the same text as a means to controlling people and expanding his dominion. The two might agree on the inherent power of the words between the covers of this book but have diametrically disparate views on how that power should be used.
