Awards are given in several genres, including contemporary, historical, romance, suspense, and visionary. In addition, an award is given for first novel and young adult. The Christy Awards are named in honor of Catherine Marshall and her novel Christy. They were designed to nurture and encourage creativity and quality in the writing and publishing of fiction written from a Christian worldview and bring a new awareness of the breadth and depth of fiction choices available."
