Meet the Ahmansons, Howard, Roberta, and their son David. As a family, the Ahmansons read, worship, travel, watch films, sometimes hike, and dig into whatever subject comes up at dinner together. Conversation may range from the latest film to the hidden Christians in Japan after 1700 to Mayan religion. It all depends on what family members have been reading lately. At present, Howard is most deeply concerned with housing and land use issues, Roberta focuses on art, religion, and journalism, and David is studying film at the University of Southern California Film School, hoping to earn an MFA.
