The full synopsis for this recently released volume occurring during the source material’s Old Testament series is quoted below:

“Itsuwa and the Amakusa Church struggle to defend Touma from Acqua of the Back, but it seems like even their combined strength won’t be enough…until their own ace in the hole arrives! Kaori Kanzaki returns to aid her comrades in their hour of need, setting the stage for a deadly duel. Will there be anything left of Academy City after the two saints clash?”

In case you missed it, Yen Press announced an Omnibus housing all 24 Old Testament light novel volumes of A Certain Magical Index.

A Certain Magical Index originated as a light novel series before expanding into several other media, such as video games and manga adaptations. In fact, entire spinoffs have been birthed from Magical Index, including the significantly more popular A Certain Scientific Railgun.

Regardless, the Magical Index light novel is still ongoing, as it’s in the midst of its third series, Genesis Testament. The three seasons of the anime have adapted the first light novel series, known as Old Testament. As of now, the second light novel series taking place right after the first, New Testament, has yet to receive an anime adaption.

While countless events and developments occur, A Certain Magical Index primarily follows protagonist Touma Kamijou, a high schooler residing in Academy City, a locale full of Espers. He is a Level 0, those whose Esper abilities are the lowest of the low.

However, Touma is different from the rest of the city since he seemingly has no latent Esper ability at all, instead possessing a mysterious power known as the Imagine Breaker in his right hand, which negates all supernatural phenomena. After meeting a young girl named Index, Touma ends up entangled in various plots involving the Science side and veiled Magic side of the world.
