eweiss, "Eli" is the name of Denzel's character. And apparently, the book he has that everyone wants is the Bible.
That reminds me of a superb scene from a movie called "The Apostle," directed by Robert Duvall. Billy Bob Thornton intends to drive a bulldozer through Duvall's church. Duvall stops him by putting the Bible in his path. Superlative acting in that scene, and a very tense and powerful dramatic moment. Highly recommended viewing.
A.L.a.E.o.t.U.S., as proven 3/21 - never forget.
Knowledge isn't Truth; it's just mindless agreement.
