Overview

Who am I? What is my purpose? Everyone struggles with these thoughts. Even if we do find answers to these questions, there are still barriers that prevent us from discovering our true identity and living free. Some barriers we put up ourselves, while some are erected by others. Once we trust in God and discover how to break through these barriers, we become so much stronger.

An anthology of poetry, short stories, and essays, Transition recounts major moments and observations from the last ten years of author Allen Paul Weaver III's life. He shares many deeply personal aspects of his journey to self-discovery. He writes candidly about his suicide attempt and life struggles. Allen also seeks insight into the issues we all wrestle with: family, life, death, education, career, prejudice, relationships, society, the nature of God, and our destiny. No matter your gender or ethnic background, the profound thoughts in Transition challenge you to improve yourself and give you courage to break through the ever-present barriers that we all face.

God has a purpose for your life! Are you ready to take the journey?

    Read it if you DARE!

    I found Transition: Breaking Through the Barriers to be very enlightening. I found myself saying 'I'm not the only one who feels or thinks the way I do'. Rev. Weaver III has captured 'being human' in a direct, in your face, truthful and honest account of his life experience, to date. I highly recommend this autobiographical anthology for all sincere seekers of TRUTH.

    A Challenging Read!

    Allen Weaver's autobiographical anthology is a challenging read. It is not a piece of literature you read from cover-to-cover and just call it a day. Allen caused me to ponder his revelations and the depths from which they were freed. He gave me permission to peer into those components hidden beneath protective layers that encapsulated him until now. He dares to take a leap of faith and bare his soul to us, his readers, in spite of his former low self-worth opinion. Allen's lyrical style is quite different from most biographical writings, incorporating a variety of styles to each piece.

    A revolutionary breakthrough in expressing ones inner struggles!

    The title is exactly what it is. This book will bridge the gap between the thoughts and the reality of our inner city youth, particularly minority males - as they Transition from males to men... and all stages in between.

    Transition gives great insight

    Allen performed the wedding ceremony for my husband and I in 2005. I was excited to hear about - and read - 'Transitions'. My favorite parts were the chapters on 'Steven' and 'Don't Judge me Until...' Allen has an easy writing style that allows the reader to instantly connect with the subject matter. Many parts are very personal and raw at times taking us out of our comfort zone with the realization that even those who are abundantly blessed are still challenged with emotional and painful trials and tribulations. Allen 'transitions' beautifully through them, the poetry and the short stories, leaving us empowered if not a little more spiritually grounded! Donna J.
