The book investigates theology of the exilic prophets in their interpretation of the meaning and significance of the Spirit of God by using the form traditio-historical and classical exegetical methods. It explores how the exilic seers namely Ezekiel, Deutero-Isaiah, and Jeremiah exhibit contextual reading by interpreting the Spirit of God in the setting of Babylonian domination of the sixth century BCE. The book demonstrates that the understanding of the Spirit of God had undergone changes in different situations. It suggests a possibility of contextual reading of the Bible and demonstrates a hope to formulate contextual pneumatology.
