Infertility is one of the most difficult challenges couples can face.

In any given church, there will be couples—family members, friends, fellow Bible study members—who long to conceive, but seem unable. In a time of incredible medical advances and seemingly on-demand treatments, how should Christians think about wise and godly options?

More particularly, what do Christians need to be aware of in the midst of the marketplace of assisted reproductive technologies (e.g. IVF)? Listen to two leading Christian doctors on what needs to be considered as Christians seek to face infertility faithfully, whether personally, or in support of others in our communities.
