Dr. James Dobson to receive ACU’s 5th Daniel Award

Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil announced today that legendary pro-family leader Dr. James Dobson will receive the 5th Daniel Award for Courageous Public Faith at a banquet in his honor April 14 at the Phoenician in Scottsdale. “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to honor Dr. Dobson for the incredible work he has done to strengthen the family, while courageously defending biblical truth in our culture,” said ACU President Len Munsil. “It is almost impossible to measure the influence of this one man on the policies and practices related to parenting and the American family over the past half-century.” Dr. James Dobson is the Founder and President of Family Talk, a nonprofit organization that produces his radio program, “Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk.” He is the author of more than 30 books dedicated to the preservation of the family, including The New Dare to Discipline; Love for a Lifetime; Life on the Edge; Love Must Be Tough; The New Strong-Willed Child; When God Doesn’t Make Sense; Bringing Up Boys; Marriage Under Fire; Bringing Up Girls; Head Over Heels and, most recently, Your Legacy: The Greatest Gift.  He was the founding president of Focus on the Family and has been an advisor to three U.S. Presidents on family issues. “Dr. Dobson’s practical wisdom for parents, through his books and radio programs, strengthened tens of millions of American families,” said Munsil. “His public proclamation of the Gospel, his work to advance the sanctity of life, strengthen marriage, fight pornography, build state family policy councils — and with his wife Shirley, to promote the National Day of Prayer – these accomplishments barely scratch the surface of Dr. Dobson’s influence. “When we...
