Chance or Purpose? Creation, Evolution and a Rational Faith (ISBN 9781586172121) is a Christian theistic evolution book, written in 2007 by one Christoph Schönborn — an Austrian cardinal of the Catholic Church.
The main claim of the book is that science is "incomplete" without
woo spirituality, and that specifically the Christian God (out of all potential deities) is somehow guiding all natural processes.
While Schönborn claims that his views do not conflict with the theory of evolution, his arguments essentially parallel those of your standard IDiot — most notably in his attempts to replace natural processes (read: scientific theories that actually have explanatory power) with "God".
As such, the book has been described not as a scientific, but a religious book — marketed towards Catholics who want to buy the conclusion that their Christianity still makes sense, whilst also (most wisely) accepting evolution.
