Hello yeshuaurnme

Christopher West was born in 1969.

The Library of Congress gives his year of birth in its catalog:

Author:   West, Christopher, 1969-
Title:    Theology of the body explained : a commentary on John Paul
II's "gospel of the body" / Christopher West ; with a foreword by
George Weigel.
Published: Boston : Pauline Books & Media, c2003.,,7090

This is confirmed in the catalog of the Mannix Library: the
theological library in Australia associated with the John Paul II
Institute where West is a visiting lecturer.

I went to the Mannix catalog after reading Christopher West's
"Curriculum Vitae", which outlines his career.

There it says he graduated from the University of Maryland in 1992,
when he must have been 22 or 23.

West seems not to talk much about himself when giving interviews, but
I found a few personal details here:

Thanks for your question. I'm glad I could discover West's birth year for you.
Please feel free to ask if you would like me to clarify anything.

Best wishes - Leli
