Gideons International

The Gideons International is an evangelical Christian organisation dedicated to distributing copies of the Bible to those who might not otherwise encounter it (such as in hotel rooms). The organisation describes its link to the story of Gideon thus:

"Gideon was a man who was willing to do exactly what God wanted him to do, regardless of his own judgment as to the plans or results. Humility, faith, and obedience were his great elements of character. This is the standard that the Gideon association is trying to establish in all its members, each man to be ready to do God's will at any time, at any place, and in any way that the Holy Spirit leads."
