Help...Confused as to exactly what prospective employer is asking for...

Yesterday I received an email response to a resume I submitted for an Executive Assistant position.
In his response the prospective employer made the following request:
"Here is a brief overview of exactly what is taking place...take a few minutes to read it over and then respond back to me if you want to confirm your interest in the position. If you do, then tell me some more about you - not your experience in the work place, but what you want me to know about you before I made a decision to interview you or not."
Correct me if I'm wrong but, typically, when a prospective employer says: "Tell me about yourself", your response should be confined to telling about yourself as it pertains to the job you are applying for. You don't include personal details about your life.
But it certainly sounds to me like personal information is EXACTLY what is being requested.
My response is expected today so any insight anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
