Editor's note: I know that on many blogs and websites religious records are on-going jokes for record collectors and with reasonable cause since many aren't very good. But...a lot of the most enjoyable covers come from this same genre. I'm not sure if it's due to bad taste in good causes or just due to a greater focus on the message over the package. I wonder how much revenue these offerings brought in since so many different churches and religious groups seem to have put out numerous albums and clearly none of the locally based records are or were bestsellers by any stretch of the imagination. I'm glad for them no matter the reason.

This cover is almost certainly by Tomie de Paola, an award-winning children's book illustrator and author who lives in either VT or NH and has done several books with religious themes. No wonder it's good.
