I love this book, this story, and this woman!


COL. Linda Herbert, US Army, Retired, was inside the western side of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.  American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into her wing, killing over 100 people.  It is a miracle that she survived, and she tells her powerful story of hope and courage, of how she heard God’s voice giving her direction.

My topic today is the Table of Contents.

What goes into a Table of Contents?

The short answer is: everything that follows it and nothing that precedes it.

The Table of Contents lists all the major divisions in the document: sections and chapters and perhaps the main headings within the chapters.

What I want to focus on today, however, is the other material in the document—which may appear either before or after the text. This includes such things as: a list of illustrations, an appendix, and an index—to name just some.

If you have any of those items in your document, where do you fit them in? Here are some guidelines on their proper placement. Whether you’re composing your own book or editing someone else’s document, this will be helpful information to know.
