Evelyn Waugh, at the start of Thomas Merton's monastic career, advised him to "write serious letters" and also urged him to "make an art of it." The Hidden Ground of Love is a rich collection of Merton's letters in a period of his greatest concern about religion's seeming powerlessness against global violence and nuclear war.
