After Joshua died without a mentor to lead Israel, the country drifted away from God. This godless society continued for 350 years. Periodically a judge would bring Israel back to their Heavenly Father and then the country would again drift away. When times were really bad, Israel would pray to God Almighty seeking a judge. One of the judges choses by God was Gideon. He drove the Midianites out of Israel, but like Joshua, did not mentor a judge to follow in his steps.
