Irene Zimmerman's scripturally-based poetry has been read from pulpits, savored by individuals, and provided the topics for weekend retreats and discussion groups. Incarnation restores to print the poems from Zimmerman's popular Woman Un-Bent and includes more than four dozen new and selected poems on scriptural themes.

Irene Zimmerman is a poet, and does what poets do. She overrides categories, breaks conventions, says it new, and moves us to where we gasp in the presence of gift. Some say imagination is linked to the Holy Spirit. So it is here, spirit of freedom, spirit of healing, spirit of joy. Irene says Mary's word is 'yes.' Here it is God's 'yes' to any listener. I am glad I am among them.--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary "Columbia Theological Seminary "
