About this Episode

Questions answered this episode:

  • If death entered the world with the fall of man, what about all the other creatures on earth before man came into the scene?
  • What is the disinterested gift that John Paul II talks about and how does it relate to eros?
  • My wife does not want any more children and resists the idea of practicing NFP. How do I not destroy my marriage, not put my soul in jeopardy and still live my moral obligation as a Catholic with a clear conscience under these circumstances?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute President Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.
