If it's obvious to everyone you exist, do you need to write a book about it like God did?

First no one knows who wrote the Bible. Some were meant to have been written by Moses but how reliable was he? He was meant to be like a prophet but there is no evidence of him ever have existed at all. There were hundreds of prophets and saints in all the religions all over the world, even before Christianity became a thing. If he did exist there is no way to test whether he was a reliable source. Other than truly being a prophet of God, he could have been a person suffering with mental illnesses, a con artist who felt powerful in this position, or a blind believer who truly believed he was doing what he said which is called unconscious fraud.
If he was in fact unreliable that makes anything he wrote unreliable. What if this new religion was all the rage and he wanted to write a fiction "novel " all about in and use himself as a character who would know? His real name could be Michael or John. That's how unreliable the Bible or any similar books are. They are the word of nothing but an unknown person whose information wasn't credible because we know nothing about them.
There was no need to write a book as it doesn't prove anything. But it's not obvious to everyone because so many people reject the idea.

That's the point -- God doesn't make himself obvious. He doesn't want to make his atheist children responsible for knowledge they don't want. Don't bother denying it. If they wanted it, they would be eagerly seeking it.

You could greatly benefit from studying the Bible and understanding it's purpose - which is far more than simply proving the existence of God.

God did not write the Bible himself... only an idiot thinks that

Well it’s not evident that hitler existed unless we write thousands of books on him. But Jesus only has one. Cause he’s that self entitled.

If you have supernatural powers, a book would be the worst way.
Do you realize that God could have placed a floating video cube in the center of Jerusalem 3000 years ago?
He could have made it unmovable and immune to fire, acid, explosives and lasers.
It could scroll scripture continually, but 2 (or more) people whose primary languages were different would see it in their own language -- no human translators would be needed.

God did not write the Bible. Where did you get that idea?
