These posters were said to bring the viewer closer to God, especially when viewed in sequence. Five of the posters depict a man's face with a different countanence affected by the large heart beneath him. "This wordless poster series, builds entirely on symbols to communicate its message about human need, struggle, and salvation. The likely venue for use of the poster was in small church or evangelism meetings, or on street corners. These and similar posters were used to explain the need for salvation, Christian discipleship, and sanctification" (per Wheaton College bulletin 1610). The animals are likely representative of the seven deadly sins, the book symbolizes the Bible, the dove is the Holy Spirit, the cross is Christ's sacrifice for mankind, the six-pointed star representing God's Law. The placement of these symbolic images in or out of the heart, in conjuction with the two posters that depict the death of a Christian vs. a non-Christian, make for a highly affective and eye catching allegorical puzzle.
