About David Ettinger

Thank you for visiting my web page!

IMG_0759 - Copy (2)Born and raised in a Jewish family in New York, I moved to New Mexico in 1979. I got married in 1980, earned my BA in English in 1981, became a father in 1983, earned my MA in English in 1985, got divorced in 1986, and gave my life to Jesus Christ that same year. I have been walking with the Lord ever since.

I began my journalism career in 1980, writing for The Roundup, the school paper of New Mexico State University. In 1981, I became a sportswriter for the Las Cruces (New Mexico) Sun-News, and eventually became an editor. I worked at the El Paso (Texas) Herald-Post as an editor/writer from 1987-1997. I worked at the El Paso Times in the same capacity from 1997-2001.

In 2001, I moved to Orlando, FL, where I was the writer/editor at The Holy Land Experience until 2005. I served as writer/editor at First Baptist Church of Orlando from 2005-2010. I currently work at Zion’s Hope, Inc. in Winter Garden, Florida. I also taught English Comp at Valencia College in Orlando from 2010-2012.

I have been published in various Lifeway publications, Single Parent magazine (Focus on the Family), Zion’s Fire magazine, and Real Life magazine. Additionally, I served as managing editor for Zion’s Fire and Real Life. In all, I have written more than 800 articles, about 400 of which are Christian-related.

My book, Overcomers: 30 Stories of Triumph from the Bible, was released in May 2015.

        I am so blessed by your testimony and your writings in Zions fire. I first read your testimony in the magazine and though you didn’t repeat it in this one; the part that really touched me was when you talked about reading through the book of Matthew and realizing that it was about a Jew and written to Jews. How utterly amazed you were. I have shared that part of your testimony with others as it blessed me so much.

    • Hi Bruce. You’re quite welcome for the follow, and most sincere thanks for your “follow” as well. I look forward to “jumping in” with some thoughts, but mostly to learning from another brother in the Lord who loves the Word and has many insights to share. Blessings, David E.
