Christy Awards

The Christy Awards are awarded each year to recognize novels of excellence written from a Christian worldview. Awards are given in several genres, including contemporary (stand-alone novels and series), historical, romance (contemporary and historical), suspense, and visionary. In addition, an award is given for first novel and young adult.

Designed to nurture and encourage creativity and quality in the writing and publishing of fiction written from a Christian worldview and showcase the breadth and depth of fiction choices available, The Christy Awards are named in honor of Catherine Marshall and her novel Christy.
