Book of Eli, in wide use today

Today’s Christian Right is dominated by those whose Bible is essentially “The Book of Eli”. The movie expands on the concept (although it does cheapen the story a bit by making Eli into a superhero sharpshooter with “spidey senses”). Anyway, the story is about how , in a post-apocalyptic feudal world, one despot feud-lord seeks out the Bible as a tool to manipulate his subjects into submission. A Bible that a ruling class could love.
