31. Our Bodies Proclaim the Gospel with Christopher West

So often, the conversation around masculinity and femininity starts with the question of roles. We ask questions like, “What should we do?” rather than asking, “What are men and women for?” In our conversation with Christopher West, president of the Theology of the Body Institute, we talk about our design, especially the physical design of our bodies, and how this design proclaims the Gospel.
