About-

The central question of this book is this: what is God’s relation to humanity? Augustine said that our hearts were restless until they rest in God. But how do we find God to rest in him? This book is my attempt at an answer. It is the cry of a soul steeped in Jesus Christ, longing for its all beautiful God. Shall our God be as great as we can imagine? Shall our love of God have any taint of fear? How do we get Jesus Christ into our hearts, to be like him? Can a human being be brought into the world by its God and be irrevocably lost? How can the humanity of Jesus be shared by each person, if that humanity is even possibly at eternal enmity with its maker? Is there anything that could justify believing in the failure of God, even a theory of inspiration? How so, if it meant that God could not be God? Such questions are explored here. This book has no agenda; nor must it, when it runs into doubts, conform to any creed. Its aim is simply this: to find and love and rest in our God.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Chris Mullen has drunk deeply from the well of George MacDonald. Every page sings with the voice of his master but even more importantly with the voice of the Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. The second to last chapter on universal reconciliation is a particular joy: ‘Any God worth believing in is one who shall reconcile all to himself: therefore all human loves, therefore every possible love that ever bubbled up into heart or brain.’ Ears of Corn is a beautiful, eloquent, and edifying book.”  

—Aidan Kimel



“In a manner reminiscent of George MacDonald, P. C. Mullen sets forth an inspired vision of God’s all-encompassing love and Christ’s ultimate victory over sin and death. He cleverly captures our attention with penetrating questions and imaginary dialogues. So even those who reject, as I do, his apparent theological determinism (see chapter 8) will nonetheless appreciate how well his questions undermine any theology that would limit the scope of God’s saving grace.”

—Thomas Talbott, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Willamette University
