JamesDobson-webDr. James Dobson is introducing a new DVD series, “Building a Family Legacy,” which builds on highlights from his historic first film series, “Your Legacy.”

“Unchanging biblical principles change who we are, and we can pass that to our children, grandchildren and beyond,” Dobson said. “ ‘Building a Family Legacy’ can help every generation be all a family can be.”

“Building a Family Legacy” adds new footage from Dobson’s lifetime of experience and learning. Eight DVDs—supported by books and study guides—bring intergenerational advice from Dr. Dobson, his wife, Shirley, daughter Danae and son Ryan.

Topics are: Your Legacy; Bringing up Boys; Bringing up Girls; Love for a Lifetime; The Strong-Willed Child; Dare to Discipline; Straight Talk to Men; and Wanting to Believe.

Audience numbers for the first series—shown mostly in church settings in a pre-DVD era—soared past 80 million. When Ryan Dobson, now a parent, found the old films on DVD a few years ago, he quickly asked his father about reworking the series for today’s moms and dads.

“The first thing I did was laugh at my dad’s glasses and clothes, but I realized quickly how valuable and timeless this information was,” Ryan said. “I picked up the phone and said, ‘Dad, my friends and I need this!’ ”

Produced and directed by David Nixon, the new series is available on DVD in October through Christian retail and online. A simulcast—available in churches Oct. 1-5—is expected to introduce the series to 1 million people. New books, study guides and re-releases of many of Dr. Dobson’s classic titles will support this milestone work. 

“I’m at a place where I could have just retired,” said Dobson, now head of the Family Talk ministry and radio broadcast. “But God told me the job’s not finished.”
