If my user ID has piqued your interested, know that epiteleo is an English transliteration of a Greek word meaning “to fulfill further,” “execute,” “do,” “finish,” or “to perform.” The current heading for this blog was inspired by Stanley Hauerwas’ excellent book of the same name, which features essays on the life and witness of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a man who embodied the Christian convictions which he proclaimed.
