The Year of the Lord’s Favor comprises short musings and essays on common Christian beliefs, practices, and issues. Some often confounding concepts in everyday discourses and praxis are addressed for clarity with pertinent biblical nuances. Christian faith as a way of life, the interface between faith and pop culture, Christian ministry and vocation, practices around the Christian Calendar, and biblical themes on freedom, spirituality, and women round up the book.

"The author of the book seeks to order, in different shades of subjects, that the subject and object of Christian faith is God in Christ ... the author's theology is centered in that person -  Jesus Christ. I Hope, James Kalong's book will have a wide range of readers for many reasons, but one thing for sure, his method and mood is unorthodox. That he takes a stand is clear!"  Excerpt from the Foreword by Wati Aier, Emeritus Professor of Constructive Theology and Philosophy, Oriental Theological Seminary, Bade, Nagaland
