Christian fiction has some of the most beautiful book covers. I think it's one of the genre that gets underrepresented in that aspect. I am covering 10 books in Christian Fiction that have made my list of enchanting book covers.
Many have different opinions on what makes a good book cover. Here is how I rate a good book cover:
- It has a simple design but still captures the eyes.
- The name of the book is easy to read and see.
- It has good photography or artwork.
- The cover can tell what the story will be about without reading the synopsis (somewhat).

1. In the Fields of Grace by Tessa Afshar
What drew me to this cover is the gorgeous lighting in the background. The sun is hitting the couple just right. I think any photo taken during Golden Hour create the best photo.
2. Where We Belong by Lynn Austin
What is not to love about this cover? You have a view of the pyramids and camels in one photo. It just makes you immediately want to know what the story is about. I also appreciated that the main characters are facing away, putting the focus in the background.
3. Isiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews
This is Mesu's new book. The young lady's hair is what drew me in. Isn't it just gorgeous? Who wouldn't want to have hair like that?! Like the previous book, I appreciate that she is facing away. That gives me a chance to envision what she could possibly look like.
4. The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright
This cover is haunting in of itself. The staircase and a dark corridor just beg you to find out what is in that house! I also like that they did not put a person on the cover, putting the focus on the house and the story about it.
5. Catching The Wind by Melanie Dobson
This cover reminds me of something that would be on an award-winning movie cover. Probably for best cinematography. This story just looks epic by looking at the cover.
6. Cain by Brennan McPherson
Who wouldn't like this cover with that guy on the cover?! haha But really I love how simple it is. The main focus is on Cain and the rock. It makes you intrigued to read the story.
7. Counted With The Stars by Connilyn Cossette
I am currently reading this book and the cover is just as beautiful! If you look close on the cover, you will see stars on her purple shawl. Not to mention how beautiful the model looks! Just gorgeous!
8. Light On The Hill by Connilyn Cossette
This is probably the one book on this list that you see the person's face. But I think it works well here. I think the light and scenery behind her catches your eye more. Connilyn definitely knows how to make a good book cover!
9. Many Sparrows by Lore Benton
This book is set during the colonial times. I think how sparse and beautiful the area on the cover is, signifies that. Before we colonized the entire US, most of it was just wild like in the picture. I like how Lore emphasized that on the cover.
10. Missing Isaac by Valerie Fraser Luesse
This book cover just reminds me of a Van Gogh painting. I love how simple it is - but emphasizes the title. It does really make you miss Isaac!
What book(s) do you think have the most beautiful cover? Let me know in the comments!
I hope you are having a wonderful week and until next time!
