Oh, is that what he means.
Maybe you or he could present another single book, which in so many words, as are written in Genesis
chapters1 through 10, say as much about the big questions of life and existence.
Let's see you present another writing of as many words as Genesis 1 to 10
which so concisely cover:
1.) The origin of matter
3.) The beginning of time & space
4,) The origin of animals
5.) The origin of man
6.) The purpose for man's creation
7.) The origin of the institution of marriage
7.) The origin of the seven day week
8.) The origin of sin and death
9.) The origin of the disharmony between God and human beings
10.) The origin of the first promise of God to save mankind
11.) The nature of the first human diet
12.) The origin of human clothing
11.) The brief history of the first human family
12.) The origin of agriculture
13.) The origin of raising livestock
14.) The first murder
15.) The first man-made religion
16.) The origin of the first human city
17.) The origin of metal work.
18.) The origin of musical performance
19.) The origin of the practice of polygamy.
20.) The description of the first civilization without government
21.) The description of both God's salvation and judgment
22.) The institution of human government
23.) The origin of meat eating
