Overcomers: 30 Stories of Triumph from the Bible

By David Ettinger 


The Bible has never been more relevant than it is today. From the tragic fall from grace of Adam and Eve, to the heartbreaking loneliness of unloved Leah, to the failure-prone Peter, the weaknesses of the Bible’s personalities are laid bare for you to read, ponder, and learn from. Though the personalities of the Bible lived thousands of years ago, you can identify with them in a very intimate way. This devotional collection of Bible personalities will encourage you as you face the daily struggles of life and show you that, through God, you cannot only survive your struggles, but triumph over them!

Delve into the lives of the people of the Bible in ways you never imagined. Here is a probing, fascinating, and dramatic examination of Bible personalities that will impact, deepen, and strengthen your walk with God [1]

David Ettinger has been writing about the Bible for almost 30 years. Having read through the Bible multiple times, David has an intimate knowledge of its fascinating personalities and has the expertise to bring them to life in ways that will touch, inspire, and refresh your heart and soul.

Editorial Reviews [2]  

It is impossible to read Overcomers: 30 Stories of Triumph from the Bible without experiencing all of the emotions and pathos its biblical personalities experienced. This is a volume for men and women; it is tender, yet it is strong. It will touch the heart. It will activate the will. David Ettinger unites his various writing influences to give us a collection of work that will impact and move you to the deepest recesses of your soul.

This devotional book will give you a chance to come alongside Bible characters in a deep, personal way. Overcomers will also teach you crucial life lessons from these individuals who lived so long ago … but still speak so powerfully. Excellent for personal, family, and Sunday school devotions. David Ettinger is a compelling writer … which you’re about to discover. I highly recommend this book to you.

    I love the word, Overcomers. It had such meaning for us. We overcome, because of Jesus. He allows us to stand with him, by his overcoming death and life, that might live as well.
