David Landis designed and co-founded the Jesus Trail in 2007. David is an experienced outdoor adventure specialist whose hiking repertoire includes trails as varied as Everest Base Camp and other trails in the Himalaya, Camino de Santiago in Spain, the Saint Paul Trail in Turkey, the Inca Trail in Peru, Torres del Paine in Patagonia and the Israel Trail. In 2004, he embarked on a round-the-world trip that took him to over 40 countries on four continents. He has also led a group of young adults on a bicycle trip across the continental USA.
David and Anna have been working together with the Jesus Trail, which they helped found, since 2007. Their research for the book involved hiking thousands of kilometers in the Galilee and walking the 800-km length of the Camino Frances in Spain twice in order to learn more about pilgrimage. They were married in May 2010 and continue to work with the Jesus Trail and other pilgrimage trails in the region. David currently works for the Abraham Path Initiative, developing a hiking trail across the Middle East following in the footsteps of Abraham.
