Not the Kind of Book Review that I Appreciate

Here is the final paragraph of a review of The Bible among the Myths: Unique Revelation or Just Ancient Literature? by John Oswalt
Oswalt’s book was written to affirm the uniqueness of the Bible. Those who believe that the Bible is the literary product of divine revelation will agree that Oswalt has shown that the Bible is different from the other religious writings from the ancient Near East. Those who reject the notion that God has revealed himself in the history of Israel will remain unpersuaded that the Bible is a unique book containing divine revelation and that the religion of Israel is different from the other religions in the ancient Near East.
This pragraph telegraphs much concerning the reviewer.

People who enjoy deliciously barbecued meat will be happy with what they find at Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City. Vegetarians will not.
