This interesting project offers 42 Bible translations in 22 languages.  The Aionian Bible is uniquely called "The World's First Bible Untranslation."  Read the preface to learn more about their mission and reason for a new Bible effort.  All 42 versions of the Aionian Bible are copyrighted under the Creative Commons license with public domain sources and so can be freely copied.  The Aionian Bible also helps the average Bible reader to reconsider the meaning of a number of underlying Greek words such as aiōnios and Hadēs.  The original translations are left undisturbed with an inline note added to alert the reader when these key words are used. For example, the word aiōnios is typically translated as eternal, yet Greek linguistics suggests that the word instead means age or entire.  Thus the aiōnios life promised in John 3:16 may not be a simple ticket to eternal life in the future, but instead the invitation through faith in Christ to a complete and restored life beginning now.  Likewise, Hadēs is typically translated as Hell, yet Revelation 20:13-14 makes it clear that Hadēs is a temporary place of punishment and finally thrown into the Lake of Fire empty of all inhabitants.  So perhaps our understanding of the life and after-life destinies of redeemed mankind and fallen angels is incomplete.  Check out the Holy Bible Aionian Edition for a better understanding of these important underlying words in context.
