A series of academic fits and starts led to an eventual bestowal of a Master of Arts in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in September, 2004. His culminating thesis was entitled ''Orthodox-Protestant Dialogue: An Analysis of a Subset of East-West Historical and Contemporary Interactions and a Justification for Orthodox Participation Therein,'' a paper written for and with Dr. Veli-Matti Kärkkäinnen.
A lifelong resident of California, Holton enjoys playing with his guitar and with his son, but not necessarily in that order. "Children are harder to tune," he says, "but the melodies are a little more interesting, unpredictible, and jazzy." Holton attends the Greek Orthodox Church of the Resurrection in Castro Valley, CA, with his son, wife, and her parents.
