M.A., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Ryan Lytton is full of useful information, like how to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" in Latin. He attended Life Pacific College where he graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies. While there he learned to read both Greek and Hebrew, and began a life-long fascination with competing interpretive methodologies. He completed a Master of Arts in Christian Thought from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where he focused on Patristic Theology, specifically how they interpreted scripture. He's currently submitting applications for PhD programs where he hopes to shed light on Paul's use of the Old Testament by examining Patristic authors like Hilary of Poitiers. He has been married to Samantha Lytton since 2008.  Their first child, Marshall, was born in 2014, and their second, Amelia, was born in 2016.
