Focus on the Family
In these Plugged In segements, Bob discusses what’s on the cultural radar. He often looks at things from a parent’s point of view, but you don’t have to be a mom or dad to care about cultural trends or about the latest box-office smash. We’ll save you a seat in Studio E!
Plugged In Online is a Focus on the Family publication designed to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving families the essential tools they need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Through our reviews, articles and discussions, we hope to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”
Each month, Plugged In Online is visited about 1 million times by people looking for detailed information about what’s really in popular movies, videos, TV episodes, songs and games. Entertainment industry ratings only tell you so much. We go deeper, diving into specific content and the meaning behind it. Our award-winning website also offers articles and commentary (Up Front), news (Culture Clips), polls, blogs, podcasts and hands-on parenting tools (Family Room).
