Back The Book of Eli

Movie Synopsis

In a post-apocalyptic world, Eli walks west, carrying with him a book that can save the world. Unfortunately, the evil Carnegie also wants to get his hands on Eli's book, though not at all for the same purposes. Both men know the power of the words contained in the book, but one intends it to heal the nations, while the other wants to twist them to serve is own desires. This is one of the most original films of the decade, with outstanding material for sermon illustrations and discussions. But the film is rated R for good reasons, so discretion in its use is strongly advised.

Movie Sermon's General Warning

The Book of Eli contains graphic violence, insinuations of attempted rape, and at least one very brief image of a partially clad naked body. Discretion is strongly advised.
