The author discusses the unfolding nature of God's covenant relationship with his people through successive prophets from the time before exile, right through to the time of restoration. In the process, three main interconnected concepts of the land, the temple and the people, are explored in relationship to God. It is when these concepts intersect that God's intimacy with his people can be seen.
