Artist Peter Brandes of Denmark crafted four 23-foot windows for the new Christ Chapel.

Each window cost $250,000 and was funded by private donations.

“I just can’t believe the beauty of it and the creativity of it,” Cornerstone University President Dr. Joseph Stowell said. “All the elements you want in good art are present in these windows. It’s significant and we’re deeply grateful for it.”

Construction on Christ Chapel is ahead of schedule. It’s expected to be finished by summer 2015.
