James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, released exclusive new content to “Building a Family Legacy” on VidAngel, a family-friendly streaming service known for popular series like “DryBar Comedy” and “The Chosen,” the #1 crowdfunded media project in history.
“Dr. Dobson has had such an impact on America and the world. We’re just honored to capture some bookend images and thoughts from his life on contemporary society,” Neal Harmon, CEO of VidAngel, told The Christian Post during a sit-down interview in Anaheim, California. “The majority of our audience — 86 percent — say that they’re very faithful people, and so we think they’re really going to enjoy this content.”
“Building a Family Legacy,” available later today, is a collection of eight films and videos that feature highlights from decades of Dobson’s teaching on parenting, marriage, and leaving a legacy of faith. The series is going to be rereleased on VidAngel with exclusive new original content on contemporary issues like social media and gender debates.
Ryan Dobson, son of James Dobson and host of the Rebel Parenting podcast, told CP that “Building a Family Legacy” spans 40 years of his father’s filmed teachings rooted in timeless biblical truths, from his famous “Strong-Willed Child” film to his recent “Your Legacy” film.
“In the first film in ‘Building a Family Legacy,’ my dad tells all these stories,” he shared. “He talks about being with Pistol Pete on the basketball court; he talks about my great-grandpa coming to the Lord at a revival meeting after running from Him for so long; he talks about wearing out the toes of his shoes because he was on his knees praying so often; he talks about finding the Lord at three, at one of his dad’s revival services.”
“I’ve seen it 30 or 40 times now. I cry watching my dad come to the Lord with his dad in a revival service, and how he remembers being in the car, pondering the decision he had made.”
VidAngel, Ryan Dobson said, is the perfect platform to release the series, as the streaming service’s mission aligns with his father’s passion for providing quality, wholesome content for families. The entertainment app allows families to filter blasphemy, language, nudity, violence, and other content from movies and TV shows streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime and other platforms.
