It's not even that - you present it to a literary critic and ask them to give it a review, they won't rate it that highly. It's a half decent story, but not as good as comparable works of fantasy, such as Discworld or Lord of the Rings.

LOTR doesn't even come about without the Bible
In fact, the vast majority of fantasy itself bases its foundation on the Bible so I would say that the Bible is a pretty big fucking deal when it comes to literature.
Maybe you don't like the story but calling it overrated is completely idiotic because it's influence on literature cannot be overstated.
