'''Gideons International''' is a non-profit [[protestant]] [[Christian]] organizationcomprised of business and professional men and their wives. Gideons spread the Word of [[God]] by placing or distributing copies of the [[King James Bible]] or [[English Standard Version]] in hotel rooms and institutions (including hospitals, schools, military bases, homeless shelters, and correctional facilities). The organization was started by two traveling salesmen in [[Wisconsin]] who were Christian and shared a hotel room, and the organization is currently headquartered in [[Nashville]], [[Tennessee]]. The Gideons first started putting Bibles in hotel rooms in 1908, and since that time have placed 1,400,000,000 (1.4 billion) of them.<ref>Christianity Today, June 2008, Pg. 16</ref>
