The Language of God by Francis Collins.

To summarize, all the mechanisms of evolution, including the existence of DNA, of proteins and even life itself require both fantastic levels of design and supernatural creative events to get them started.  Although evolution is a natural process, it has supernatural design embedded in it at all levels and the process could not have begun without supernatural creation of life in the first place.  DNA contains a code.  Codes to not create themselves.  The code was self-obviously a created designed element.  There are many, many more aspects of design in the natural but designed process of evolution.
