Carson is Ron and Deborah’s son and Regan’s brother. Also a committed Christian for his whole life, Carson takes after his father—in the positive ways—as much as Regan does her mother. Although Carson visits the Union Gospel Mission numerous times, particularly to pray with homeless for Deborah’s healing, his main passion seems to be the world of art-dealing. Like Regan, Carson is a young adult for most of the story and plays a small role, though he, too, seems to accept Denver as a member of the family.
