For the sake of this question lets take for granted god is real and gave his written word to man.
If he gave one book, and god is above time why couldn't he write a book that is also above time not needing to change it by presenting making with a second book? (i. e. The old testament and the new testament)

God never wrote a book. Both books were written by people and they express the way of life and cultural habits in the days they were written. That is why it is silly to copy them 100% to other era in time. Some parts in the books are general about the human mind and how he should behave towards other people and those are timeless, other parts are linked to the era they were written and rather obsolete nowadays (and then you and up with stupid rules when you want to apply them)0

I guess I'll try to play along.
Conceptually, god is outside of time and space, ie. he exists outside of the known universe... while of course being omnipresent (everywhere at once).
By giving his written word to men in the form of a book, it now has to exist inside of time and space. Basically, causing a book to exist in the known universe and 'being above time' are mutually exclusive.0
