Denzel Washington Praises Documentary

Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington is a fan of the EthicsDaily.com documentary "Different Books, Common Word" that is airing on ABC stations. Washington praised the film during an appearance on BET. Washington, the son of a Pentecostal pastor, is a committed Christian and star of the new film "The Book of Eli," which is supposed to be full of religious themes. You can watch the trailer and other clips from "Different Books, Common Word" here. To check local listings, visit the list of airdates here.


  1. I missed the 3:55 a.m. Houston showing, but have read the discussion guide in full.

    I hope the video is not as condescending to devout Muslims and Baptists as is the discussion guide.

    It comes across as educators writing a "get in touch with your feelings" guide for little children having insufficient sense or life experience to have done so.

    I'm offended.

  2. The film does not come across that way. It is well done.
