Triumphant Journey Jigsaw Puzzle and Poster Review by Donna CamposArtist: Phyllis F. Sweeney

As a fan of John Bunyan's classic work, I wondered how any artist could possibly represent every event or meeting in one piece of art, but Phyllis F. Sweeney has indeed accomplished the task. Triumphant Journey is a beautiful piece of artwork, but it's the inclusion of the 58 events on Christian's journey that makes it a masterpiece. The price of $20 for either the poster or the puzzle may seem a bit pricey, but take into account the educational value when you are considering the purchase. The opportunity to visualize the story offers a more complete understanding of Christian's journey. The included booklet is an excellent tool for use with the book, and it could be used by co-ops or other groups. I believe any homeschool style and learning environment could benefit from these products.
Our family found the Triumphant Journey poster to be a perfect piece to adorn our library room wall, and the puzzle will become an annual project during school breaks. Utilizing both available formats will offer our family ample opportunity for discussing a renowned classic and will also increase our children's understanding of the gospel message.
