The Old Testament and New Testament records very little when you truly consider the span of time the Bible covers. Consequently, merely to pose such a question is a form of ignorance (no offence to the actual questioner). What this suggests is that we might need to ask the question Why Does The Bible Exist?
In the Gospel of John, we are told that there would be insufficient books in the world to describe all that Jesus did.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. (John 21:25 KJV)
The period being referenced could be just over 2 years or, maybe, what Jesus did in His entire life. Whatever the case, you get the idea. Many people today write much; but comparatively few people read much of what is written. Best sellers are often purchased; yet not read. Public libraries throw out books that have not been read.
Therefore, we can conclude that the Bible exists for a reason other than to record everything God has done. People claiming to be polymaths have yet to understand much of how life works and what exists in the Universe. Yet you suggest God is not active: having set in motion the Universe and provided the principles for its operation (which only the Mind of  Omniscient Intelligence could). Fools claim God does not exist (Psalm 14.1) and could not exist; they are smarter.
Why do fools think they are smarter than the Omniscient One? Because they have their own theories and have written many more pages than are found in the Bible. Yet no body in society has been able to live up to requirements of the only Ten Words that God Himself wrote— so much for men being superior to the Almighty.
But for those of us who actually have sought out the Lord God and discovered that Jesus has risen from the dead, because we have a relationship with Him and have been baptized in the promised Holy Spirit, we know God is active.
If you want an indication of how much is covered by only the Ten Words that God Himself wrote and its implications for us today, read The Only Words Written By The Finger Of God.
