Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide saw the inaugural film in Dr. James Dobson's "Building a Family Legacy" series during its simulcast world premiere. More than 7,000 churches and other groups simulcast Your Legacy, the first film in the series.
"This is the culmination of my life's pursuit—helping parents build a family legacy of faith that will endure for generations," Dobson said. "Despite what the media and popular culture claim, there is deep hunger for a family emphasis on faith and passing our values on to the next generation. The worldwide turnout for 'Building a Family Legacy' shows it."
The Your Legacy simulcast told the personal story of faith that traces Dr. Dobson's own family history. His great-grandfather started praying daily more than a century ago that the next four generations of family members would become Christians.
Simulcast sites spanned 49 states and 21 countries. Dr. Dobson's encouragement for families reached many areas that are especially challenging for faith messages to penetrate, including Malaysia, China and Afghanistan.
The "Building a Family Legacy" project caps the decades-long career of America's best-known family expert and encompasses eight each of films, books and study guides. The centerpiece of the project is the DVD series that combines four updated films from Dobson's classic "Focus on the Family" videos with four new films from Dobson and his son, Ryan Dobson.
New books also support the films. Dr. Dobson's Your Legacy (FaithWords) tells his personal story and offers practical advice on building a legacy of faith. Wanting to Believe (B&H Books)is the story of Ryan's spiritual journey and an account of how his parents' faith became his own. The project also includes revised and updated versions of classic works from Dr. Dobson.
