Singer-songwriter and author Josh Ritter's new album, Sermon On the Rocks, is out today. It's his eighth studio album since he began recording while at Oberlin College in 1999. Starting with the title, Sermon On The Rocks is filled with biblical references: Classic Bible stories were part of Ritter's upbringing in Moscow, Idaho, and he says those stories provide universal ways to get ideas across.

Hear Ritter perform acoustic versions of some of the new songs — and download his World Cafe performance of "Henrietta, Indiana" on this page.
