The Work of Betrayal is the first of Brelich's books to be translated into English.
"[R]emarkably intelligent and richly provocative: at once a compelling detective story, a creative hermeneutic enterprise and a tour de force of biblical deconstruction. . . . [It] is concerned not with discovering the truth of Scripture but with rigorously analyzing its contradictions and lacunas. Steering clear of both sanctimony and heresy, it challenges and enlarges our understanding of the crucial texts of Western culture and of the primordial impulses upon which both that culture and its texts are based." —New York Times Book Review
"An unusual novel [blending] scriptural interpretation, theology and fiction, this book will appeal to those who are interesting in serious religious literature." —Library Journal
