I don't believe it is merely a (secular) history book -- I think it's more profound

first man down to the time of Moses" why a) does it show signs of having been
redacted by later editors; and b) why doesn't it tell us anything about, say, the
Chinese?
Marc, I can't believe that you wrote this. Think it through again. How could a history be "secular" if it is a record of God's dealings with man? As for the Chinese, I think that much of the Old Testament is devoted to teachings that apply to all mankind. I assume that includes the Chinese too.
