Sheila Varghese

Sheila Varghese was born in Bangalore, India.

With many years spent in theological and neo-literate education, she also worked as a freelance columnist, book reviewer and special correspondent for several newspapers in India.

In the 1990s, in a joint project between the Protestants and Roman Catholics, she co-edited a chronologically arranged, condensed version of the Old Testament using the text of the Jerusalem Bible1 with the late Sister Genevieve de Cordove2. The publication was for students in Indian schools.
