Preliminary Outline of "Jerusalem 101"

Here is my current attempt to organize the information that will be in the book "Jerusalem 101: History, Archaeology, Apologetic." The title itself needs refined. The 600 photos I have selected from 4,000 need to pass through another selection process. I have drawn most of the 50 or so maps and diagrams that will be included. About a third of the information is in text, but my research is not finished. The organization of this material has been a heavy weight that I have struggled with for the last four weeks. This is the best I have come up with so far, but this is far from complete. At some point I have to say, like always, "good enough" and edit it. That day will be in about 3 weeks . . . here is the Table of Context as of right now:
