The Story in the Windows (by Rev. Gary W. Denning) follows the life of Christ portrayed in the sanctuary windows of the First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh. Designed and built by Charles J. Connick in the studios of Horace J. Phipps of Boston, and installed in 1912, the windows bear no large images of people, but contain symbols that recall the birth, ministry, teachings, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ in patterns that invite a person to faith in Christ. The Story in the Windows shows how these invitational patterns are particularly suitable to a Baptist congregation, and clarifies their origins in Scripture, history, tradition, and Christian art.
